Sylvester Stallone Joins The Suicide Squad In Mystery Role

1 17

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated movies on DCEU’s slate. Having kept everything under the wraps for quite some time, we had our first look at The Suicide Squad in the DC Fandome event. Dubbed as a soft reboot of David Ayer’s critically panned Suicide Squad (2016), The Suicide Squad has retained a few original members of the first movie while adding some exciting stalwarts in interesting roles. Now, The Suicide Squad has dropped another major reveal with veteran superstar Sylvester Stallone joining the cast.

With Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, and Jai Courtney reprising their roles of Harley Quinn, Rick Flag, Amanda Waller, and Captain Boomerang, The Suicide Squad has added numerous new characters. Starring Idris Elba, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, David Dastmalchian, Michael Rooker, Taika Waititi, Nathan Fillion, Sean Gunn, and John Cena, The Suicide Squad is a wacky and crazy adaptation, if the first trailer is to be believed.

Now, action star Sylvester Stallone has confirmed in a recent Instagram post that he would be joining the vast ensemble of the cast in an undisclosed role. The legendary action hero has previously starred in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as Stakar Ogord. In his post, the Rambo star has stated “Working with this incredible Director on this astounding project has made this an amazing year. I am a very lucky man to be surrounded by such talent.! #Warner Bros.”

Director James Gunn has also posted a picture with Sylvester Stallone with the caption: “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.”

As The Suicide Squad is set to release next year, James Gunn has already announced that he is working on a spinoff series starring John Cena as Peacemaker. While it is yet to be revealed in what capacity Sylvester Stallone is in the movie, we can only hope he reprises his mystery role in the Peacemaker series.
