After revealing the entire cast for the upcoming The Suicide Squad, director James Gunn has provided more details on when fans can expect to find out which roles the new additions to the star-studded cast will be portraying.
Gunn recently unveiled the full official cast list for the film, while simultaneously declaring that people shouldn’t get too attached. As well as the already confirmed names, the list included a mixture of new names and actors long-rumored – such as frequent collaborator Nathan Fillion. In a follow-up tweet, however, Gunn revealed that it’ll be sometime before people learn which characters the majority of the actors will actually be playing. In a follow-up tweet, the director stated that he was “simply focused on MAKING the greatest movie” that he could, rather than promoting it. Both of Gunn’s posts, the first of which responded directly to a fan’s question, can be seen in the space below:
There have been plenty of reports over the last several months regarding The Suicide Squad. Gunn does admit some of those reports are accurate, while also stating some of the reports from reputable sources are inaccurate. Nevertheless, we shouldn’t get our hopes up on getting official character details anytime soon.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters Aug. 6, 2021.
