James Gunn’s rebootequel of The Suicide Squad will once again give super villains a chance at reducing their prison sentences, in exchange for carrying out top-secret suicide missions for the government.
• King Shark — Nanaue is a humanoid shark who originally terrorized Hawaii, but now operates as a member of the Suicide Squad. Contrary to popular belief, King Shark is indeed a shark.
• Ratcatcher — Otis Flannegan uses his almost preternatural ability to train rodents in committing crimes as… the Ratcatcher. This role is said to be gender-swapped and play by a woman.
• Peacemaker — Christopher Smith is the Peacemaker, a motorcycle driving, gun-toting vigilante bent on bringing peace to the world.
• Polka-dot Man — A minor Batman villain from the Silver Age who turns the Polka-Dots on his costume into weapons.
The return of Harley, Deadshot and the addition of King Shark has me excited, the other characters I’m not to keen on, particularly Polka-Dot Man, I don’t get him. But knowing Gunn he’ll make it work as he has a knack for making quirky characters
Dave Bautista is being eyed for the role of Peacemaker according to Collider, Gunn and him have a close relationship after working on Guardians of the Galaxy together
