pretty much anything is better at this point
Since when did Will Smith get so unpopular?
That aside, Elba would make a good Deadshot.
REPORT: James Gunn's Suicide Squad 2 Team Revealed
Collider reports that the four new characters joining the team in James Gunn's The Suicide Squad are Ratcatcher, King Shark, Polka-Dot Man and Peacemaker.
Ratcatcher is a Batman villain who uses a preternatural ability to train rodents in committing crimes. (So he's like the Rat King from TMNT?). The character may be female for the film.
King Shark is a humanoid shark, son of a shark god and an Aquaman villain, who recently found a better calling by serving in the Squad.
Polka-Dot Man is a minor Batman villain from the Silver Age who turns the Polka-Dots on his costume into weapons.
Peacemaker is a motorcycle driving, gun toting vigilante bent on bringing peace to the world through killing. James Gunn reportedly wants Dave Bautista for the role.
Expected to return are Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. Joel Kinnaman also might reprise his role as Rick Flagg.
That is diverse, certainly. Especially the Polka Dot Man.
Pretty cool that they're going for the lesser known villains from DC here. Still hoping that they'll add Killer Frost to add more females into it.
Or, and hear me out, they don't do that and cast Idris Elba as Martian Manhunter instead.
Because he's a big dumbo eared hack. Especially back in the day when every one of his shitty ,movies was followed by one of his annoying ass overplayed songs.
Lmao bro you made my day i just cant stop laughing after reading this comment in a good way
Neat. I'm surprised they don't really use Ratcatcher outside of comics. He's got a perfect "Batman villain" gimmick.
I just hope they don't make ALL the C and D-listers into fodder. Please surprise me a bit, Gunn.
So, we get Ratking from TMNT? Cool.
Yeah, there’s so many better options for Idris — he shouldn’t be used as a Will Smith re-cast.
Instead of using Tyrese or Common for GL John Stewart (like past rumors suggest), how about use one of them as the SS Deadshot re-cast, and let idris be John?
I wouldn't want to cast Elba in a role where he had to ditch his accent. Also watching Justice League has put an image of John in my mind I think Elba is a bit too smooth for.
THE SUICIDE SQUAD Working Title Revealed; Alludes To A Hidden City
Nice roster, hope they make King Shark more shark-like than he was in the animated version. The one on Flash looks great despite the CGI.
Polka Dot Man has some pretty strong powers despite his silly costume and name, I think he can literally conjure black holes too.
REPORT: James Gunn's Suicide Squad Will Draw From This Iconic Run
So in case anyone’s missed it, the movies been officially titled The Suicide Squad.
Pretty much seals the whole reboot deal.
The Suicide Squad: Jai Courtney Returning As Captain Boomerang
I actually like this. Out of all the things in Suicide Squad, Captain Boomerang I think was one of the best characters.
THE SUICIDE SQUAD Will Reportedly Feature "A Monstrous Alien Femme Fatale" Character
"Gunn is searching for an actress in the 20-30 age range to play a "monstrous alien femme fatale," who is also described as being a "surly, muscular creature" who will require a lot of prosthetics to bring to life on the big screen."
That could be anyone given how adaptations get, but my best guess is the Red Lantern Bleez.
I'd be completely fine with Bleez being in the movie. I dig her look and overall character from what I've learned about online on her and she does fit into the more twisted nature of Suicide Squad.
Oh wow, that looks like something straight out of Devilman. Cool stuff! Fingers crossed she's in!
