For something that’s been described as “a total reboot”, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is certainly starting to look very familiar…
Coming hot on the heels of the news that both Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller) are set to return, Variety has revealed that Margot Robbie is now confirmed to reprise her role as Harley Quinn. Robbie is currently shooting the DC girl gang movie Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), which is slated for release in 2020.
The trade suggests that Courtney, Davis and Robbie will be the only three cast members from the 2016 movie to return for Gunn’s film, although Discussing Film is also claiming that Joel Kinnaman will be back as Rick Flag.
Suicide Squad 2 is set for release on August 6th 2021.
