James Gunn shared yesterday that Sylvester Stallone will be joining the cast of the upcoming superhero sequel The Suicide Squad. Gunn posted the announcement to his Instagram with a shot of him and Stallone. From the caption, it appears that Stallone has already begun filming his scenes. When questioned by one of his followers if we had missed the casting news, Gunn cheekily responded “No. I’m telling you now.”.

Sylvester Stallone shared his own Instagram post sharing how incredible it is working alongside Gunn and how working on the project has truly made his year. Unfortunately, both are still pretty tight-lipped about Stallone’s role in The Suicide Squad. There has been some speculation that he will be voicing King Shark, but nothing concrete. We are going to be keeping our eyes peeled over the next few weeks for any little bit of information!

The Suicide Squad is not a reboot per se but will look, feel and be completely different from its predecessor. The biggest difference? Gunn has been given full license to kill. It might seem like a shock, a superhero movie where the hero kills. But it’s important to remember that while they may appear to be good, the Suicide Squad is full of villians. People who aren’t afraid to shed some blood in the pursuit of their goals.

The Suicide Squad stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Viola Davis, John Cena and Peter Capaldi, among others. The film is currently scheduled for theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
