It seemed like nonstop we were either hearing new additions or rumors of addition to Warner Bros THE SUICIDE SQUAD written and directed by James Gunn. Well Gunn himself has offically revealed the cast of the upcoming sequel on Twitter.
The new additions include Alice Braga (QUEEN OF THE SOUTH, I AM LEGEND), Joaquin Cosio (RAMBO), Mayling Ng (WONDER WOMAN), Juan Diego Botto (GOOD BEHAVIOR), Storm Reid (EUPHORIA, A WRINKLE IN TIME),Tinashe Kajese (COLD CASE), Julio Ruiz (CRIMINAL MINDS) and Jennifer Holland (BRIGHTBURN).
This also officially confirms Michael Rooker, Pete Davidson and Taika Waititi as members of the film.
THE SUICIDE SQUAD is set to hit theaters on August 6, 2021
When you hear that a project like THE SUICIDE SQUAD is constantly grabbing high level talent and with a director such as James Gunn at the helm you cant help but to continually have your anticipation build. This is another one of those times.
DEADLINE is reporting that DOCTOR WHO actor Peter Capaldi, who also is an Academy Award winner (1995) is joining THE SUICIDE SQUAD. But the announcements do not stop there. It is also being reported that SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE‘s Pete Davidson has been in talks for a small cameo in the pic, and there’s a chance he’ll do it between breaks on the shot. That deal is still coming together.
No details were given in regards to which roles Capaldi or Davidson will play. What do you think of this news and who would you like to see these characters portray on the big screen?
The man who re-invigorated the THOR film series thanks to THOR RAGNAROK and is getting ready to jump back into it with THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER ,and already has a jam packed Fall lined up is potentially making his way onto the superhero franchise aisle. DEADLINE is reporting that actor, director and writer, Taika Waitii is currently in talks to join James Gunn’s THE SUICIDE SQUAD for Warner Bros and DC.
Waititi is currently promoting his Fox Searchlight comedy JOJO RABBIT (opening Oct. 18) and beginning work on NEXT GOAL WINS, his next directorial for the studio classic label. There are no reports on what his role will be or even how big it will be.
Waititi would join a growing cast that includes Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag) as well as new castmembers Idris Elba, David Dastmalchian (Polka-Dot Man), Daniela Melchior (Ratcatcher), John Cena (Peacemaker) Flula Borg, Steve Agee (King Shark) and Nathan Fillion.

I think it’s pretty safe to say James Gunn’s THE SUICIDE SQUAD is locked and loaded with talent on all fronts and this latest casting announcement just adds to it.
DEADLINE just broke the news that Comedian Steve Agee is the latest addition to the “worst heroes ever” sequel. Agee will provide the voiceover to super-villain King Shark, who most recently was seen on The CW’s THE FLASH.
Agee already has a working relationship with Gunn as he was in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 as Gef, a member of the Ravagers. This is also not the first time Agee will be utilizing his voice talents. He can also be heard on Cartoon Network’s ADVENTURE TIME and Netflix’s TWELVE FOREVER.
It is hard to believe that anyone thought that the upcoming JOKER movie starring Joaquin Phoenix would get any other rating than R. Now it is officially confirmed to be an R-rated film and a HARD R at that. The films rating was given by the Motion Picture Association of America. According to the movie’s official website, the Clown Prince of Crime’s first solo movie will feature, “Strong Bloody Violence, Disturbing Behavior, Language and Brief Sexual Images.”
It has been constantly going around that the Todd Phillips directed film would be aimed at a much older movie as this is not the ordinary comic book movie. One of the main things that has been said is that there will be “disturbing behavior”. So on top of what we have seen in the trailers that give off the vibes a lot of weird stuff will happen.
A new still from the film has been released and it is more of Joaquin in the makeup, which is not a bad thing at all. If these photos showed us more Arthur Fleck than Joker there would be an uproar.
Keep in mind a new trailer will be dropping at the end of the month as well.
San Diego Comic Con is just around the corner and with many awaiting what Marvel Studios is set to bring to Hall H on Saturday, we now know one of the many major announcements. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Marvel Studios is indeed moving forward with the long-rumored Thor 4 and have confirmed that Taika Waititi will return to write and direct the follow-up to his 2017 blockbuster, THOR RAGNAROK
Chris Hemsworth has also been confirmed to reprise his role as the all-mighty God of Thunder. But will we see in shape Thor or Fat Thor from AVENGERS ENDGAME.
It should be no surprise that Marvel Studios wanted Waititi to return to helm the follow to this extremely successful RAGNAROK.
Now when it comes to the manga turned movie AKIRA, it was originally set to arrive in theaters on May 21, 2021 but with Waititi beginning production on THOR 4 and even script development concerns with AKIRA all equaled the film being pushed back indefinitely.
What Warner Bros will do next for AKIRA is unclear. Several sources have said that Warner Bros is keen on keeping Waititi involved for the long term and hopes to see him pick up AKIRA after Thor 4.
The changes and switch ups are still happening with Warner Bros THE FLASH movie. It now seems that there are new people in the mix to not only direct the Scarlet Speedsters solo film but to scribe the screenplay as well.
Andy Muschietti, the director of It and the upcoming It: Chapter Two, is in talks to direct the action-adventure project based on the DC Comics superhero. His partner and sister, Barbara Muschietti, will produce. joining Michael Disco on the project. Also Christina Hodson, the writer of Bumblebee and the upcoming Warner Bros. BIRDS OF PREY is set to write the film.
Now this may sound a bit confusing to some as last heard both John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were writing not only writing the film as well as set to direct it but they have moved on. As well Ezra Miller, who is still attached to play the fastest man alive also wrote a version of the script along comic book writer, Grant Morrison but Warner Bros. has moved forward without that one either.
