James Gunn‘s sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad is beginning to take shape, in fact, in an Instagram post, the writer-director confirmed that Sylvester Stallone has joined the cast. Stallone himself confirmed his involvement with a video on Instagram. Some are speculating that Stallone will be the voice of King Shark.
Always love working with my friend @officialslystallone & our work today on #TheSuicideSquad was no exception. Despite Sly being an iconic movie star, most people still don’t have any idea what an amazing actor this guy is. 🙌
Speaking of the sequel’s cast, several actors will be returning to reprise their roles. We do know that Margot Robbie will return as Harley Quinn and Jai Courtney will reprise his role as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis is back as Amanda Waller, and Joel Kinnaman returns as Rick Flagg. There will also be new supervillains in the movie played by Nathan Fillion (T.D.K.), Idris Elba (Bloodsport), and John Cena (Peacemaker), Deadline is reporting.
