The Suicide Squad from James Gunn is definitely a movie on the mind of many DC Comics’ fans. 2016’s Suicide Squad was a disappointment in terms of critical and fan reviews, though a lot of that probably had something to do with the studio interfering with David Ayer’s intended vision for that film – leaving the finished product as something that wasn’t actually finished. Fast forward to 2018, and following James Gunn’s firing from Guardians of the Galaxy franchise (he was later re-hired for the third film) WB hired the director to revamp the characters – and we now have our first look at the cast!
The Suicide Squad’s massive cast features Joel Kinnaman as Colonel Rick Flag, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, and… so many more. https://t.co/dkPwKItj6X pic.twitter.com/YWKZW14lo7
