The first movie of this anti-hero movie series was released in 2016 and made us all go gaga over the characters. So aren’t we supposed to be excited when we hear the news of another remarkable actor joining the movie series?
So who is this new member?
Well, as per rumors… Idris Elba was to play Deadshot, but then it was announced that Elba was playing an entirely new character. And you know what? Luckily for the fans, he is not the only new cast member to join this group.
Elba is accompanied by Michael Rooker, Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Alice Braga, Storm Reid, John Cena, Nathan Fillion, Jennifer Holland, Taika Waititi, Julio Ruiz, Tinashe Kajese, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Mayling Ng, Joaquín Cosío, Flula Borg, Pete Davidson, Steve Agee, and Daniela Melchior.
This is the cast member list posted by Gunn on his Instagram account. But, but, but… With a warning… “DON’T GET TOO ATTACHED” What do you mean don’t get too attached? Well… I guess we will never know until the movie comes out… Oh! Which by the way is scheduled to release on 6th August, 2021 (USA).
Jai Courtney is to be seen as the thief captain boomerang, David Dastmalchian as Polka-dot man, John Cena as Peacemaker, Daniela Melchior, and Steve Agee as the voice of shark king. The other cast member roles are undisclosed as for now.
Talking about the warning, “don’t get too attached”, a theory according to Digital Spy, suggests that Gunn’s huge cast list can only mean that there’s gonna be an enormous number of deaths… Of course it’s just a theory for now… But somehow, it all makes sense… First, the new additions are obscure even within the realm of comics, and then… Not to forget, they are all expendable.
