According to the film’s director James Gann, Sylvester Stallone has joined the cast of Suicide Squad 2.
On Saturday, November 14, Ghana posted a selfie with Stallone on his Instagram, saying: “I always love working with my friend @ officialslystallone, and our work today on #TheSuicideSquad was no exception. Although Sly is a cult movie star. “A lot of people still do not know how amazing an actor he is.”
When a fan asked if it meant that Stallone was involved in the film, Ghana’s answer was “yes.” Gans has already said that filming ended in February, so it is unknown how long Stallone will appear in the film.
The premiere of the Ghana Suicide Squad is scheduled for August 6, 2021. Starring Margo Robbie, Idris Elba, John Senna, Joel Kinnaman, Peter Capaldi and Viola Davis. Ghana, who also wrote the script for the film, took inspiration from the comic book series Suicide Squad in the ’80s and added new characters to the story. Stallone has previously worked with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, where he played Stacar Ogord, who later becomes the protagonist Starhawk.
The second part of the 2016 Suicide Squad, shot by David Ayer, was still announced before the film was released. Nevertheless, Ayer left the project in December 2016 to work on the film Gotham City Sirens. Warner Bros. hired The Way Back director Gavin O’Connor in September 2017, but the film dropped out due to a difference in creative vision. In January 2019, James Gann became the director of the second part of the Suicide Squad.
