"The Suicide Squad" provides Sylvester Stallone, James Gunn reveals casting with Set Photograph
Just when you thought about the cast James Gunn& # 39; S The suicide squad has been carefully stacked, it grows by one. This weekend, Gunn casually revealed that Sylvester Stallone had joined the cast of The Suicide Squad. Stallone's casting marks a reunion with Gunn after the veteran actor appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as Stakar Ogord. Stallone joins an impressive cast, including Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, and John Cena.
On Saturday, Gunn hopped on Twitter and Instagram to share a new set photo with Stallone and himself on the Suicide Squad set. Gunn captioned the photo, “I always love working with my friend @officialslystallone and our work on #TheSuicideSquad today was no exception. Even though Sly is a legendary movie star, most people still have no idea what a great actor this guy is. "
The set photo doesn't reveal too much about Stallone's immersion in the dark, weird, and wild world of The Suicide Squad. Equally annoying (for slaughtering purposes) is the fact that Stallone doesn't appear to be in costume, making it difficult to read his role or relationship with the other characters. The set shown in the photo appears to be an eye-catching bar or club, which could indicate where it will appear in The Suicide Squad. But just like Gunn's joke that no character is certain, all bets appear to be void when it comes to Stallone's involvement in this upcoming Warner Bros. movie.
The Suicide Commission will hit theaters on August 6, 2021. Check out Gunn's set photo with Stallone below. Find out about the latest updates from the Suicide Squad spinoff show Peacemaker and read what Jai Courtney told us about the new DCEU movie.
