An apparent list of the new characters to appear in James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad” has gone online over at Collider, the group of characters joining Deadshot whom it was revealed yesterday will be played by Idris Elba who is replacing Will Smith.
According to the site, the new squad will consist of Ratcatcher, King Shark, Mister Polka Dot and Peacemaker. Ratcatcher is a female super-criminal who is a fan of poisonous gas and can control an army of small rodents, plus Deadshot may act as a surrogate father of sorts to her.
Nanaue, aka King Shark, is a humanoid shark whom many label a mutation, but he thinks he’s the son of a God. Mister Polka Dot grows multi-colored dots on his body that he can turn into fireballs and other weapons, but he’s embarrassed about his awkward abilities. Peacemaker is driven an extremist form of pacifism and he’ll do anything for peace – even kill for it.
Gunn will write and direct the film which will act as a soft reboot for the franchise. It’s expected Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will appear, but Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flagg isn’t expected to return. The film will shoot this Fall ahead fo an August 6th 2021 release.
