The whole Suicide Squad cast assembled for their panel at DC FanDome!

By Rachelle  /  23 Aug 2020 (Sunday)

The entire cast of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie directed by James Gunn assembled to answer some questions from fans and play a game amongst themselves and it was as fun and chaotic as you would imagine!

The panel also revealed a roll call video, an official announcement if you will, that finally reveals which characters the actors will be portraying, comprising of characters Gunn said that he reached deep into the DC Comics canon to find as well as some inventions of his own.

Michael Rooker is playing Savant, who runs afoul of the Birds of Prey in his efforts to discover Batman’s true identity. Flula Borg is playing Javelin, a former Olympic athlete who first tussled with Green Lantern before joining the Suicide Squad. David Dastmalchian is playing Polka-Dot Man, a Batman villain from the 1960s who could use the dots on his suit to execute his nefarious plans. Daniela Melchior is playing Ratcatcher 2, presumably related to the original Ratcatcher, another Batman villain whose ability is controlling rats.

Idris Elba who was initially cast to replace Will Smith as Deadshot will be playing Bloodsport, a mercenary driven to vengeance in the comics after his brother loses all his limbs in the Vietnam War. King Shark, a giant man with a shark head who was recently featured on the CW TV series The Flash will be played by Steve Agee.

Mayling Ng is playing Mongal, an alien with a twin brother named Mongul in the comics. Peter Capaldi is playing the Thinker, one of the oldest DC Comics villains dating back to the 1940s, whose abilities have included the ability to control human and electronic minds alike. Alice Braga is playing Sul Soria, seemingly a new character created for the film who is likely related to the comics character Juan Soria, who joins the Suicide Squad after getting rejected by the Justice League. Pete Davidson is playing Blackguard, a not-terribly-successful or smart villain who is easily manipulated into foiling his own schemes.

Nathan Fillion is playing T.D.K., another seemingly new character, whose name evokes the Suicide Squad character Knockout, a female villain with super strength. Sean Gunn is playing Weasel, who is, basically, a man-sized weasel. John Cena is playing Peacemaker, who Cena describes in the behind-the-scenes look as a “douchey Captain America,” and who Gunn describes as “the guy who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill along the way.”

Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman and Jai Courtney will reprise their respective roles as Harley Quinn, Amanda Waller, Rick Flagg and Cpatain Boomerang from the previous film.

That's not all! Gunn also shared a behind-the-scenes video to further entice fans on his upcoming project which he has called "his biggest film yet".

The Suicide Squad opens in cinemas 5 August 2021.
