The Suicide Squad sequel is picking up some steam, and word just got out of who may be part of the mercenary group in the upcoming James Gunn movie.
According to a report from Collider, four new members will join the gang in “Suicide Squad 2”. They are all familiar foes, though some may be more obscure than others. Ratcatcher, King Shark, Polka-Dot Man, and Peacemaker will all be added to the roster.
Peacemaker, who seems to be a cross between The New Gods and The Punisher, is rumored to be played by Dave Bautista, or at least that is who James Gunn wants to take the role. It would be a huge get for the movie, and I am sure Bautista would be open to working with Gunn again.
King Shark, meanwhile, is currently part of the DC TV universe and has appeared on CW’s “The Flash”, but the cinematic world is completely separate from the television universe so that is not a big deal.
Ratcatcher was a villain from Batman who was originally a male, and is now rumored to be genderswapped into a female role.
And as for Polka-Dot Man, he is a man who uses polka dots as weapons. Could be worse….
The remaining team members from the first movie to reappear (so far) are Deadshot who will now be played by Idris Elba, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. Joel Kinnaman is also rumored to reprise his role as Rick Flagg, but no official word on that just yet.
