Here is the Full Cast List of James Gunn’s Reimagining of ‘Suicide Squad’

When I watched Suicide Squad for the first time last year I was immediately struck with the blaring similarities between this anti-hero team and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Like The Guardians of the Galaxy, the Suicide Squad was a bunch of misfits who were tasked with saving the world, but unlike Guardians of the Galaxy, which was helmed by James Gunn’s genius, Suicide Squad was a hot mess of a storyline laced with potential.

When Disney briefly released James Gunn after several inappropriate tweets were unearthed from Gunn’s past Warner Bros. quickly jumped on the opportunity for James Gunn to take over the Suicide Squad sequel. On Friday, James Gunn revealed the new and improved cast for what is now being called The Suicide Squad and of course, I’m here to share the list with you. Enjoy!

Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie returns as Harley Quinn, who was actually the only good thing about Suicide Squad. I’m relieved.

Taika Waititi

Taika Waititi has risen to Hollywood prominence after his genius approach on the third Thor movie, Thor: Ragnarok. He’s also being recognized as a great actor as well as he brought CGI character Korg to life in Ragnarok and apparently plays the droid, IG-11, in the new Disney+ Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.

Who he will play in The Suicide Squad is still unclear.

Idris Elba
