The cast of suicide squad 2 revealed

It may come as a surprise for you to know that Marvel Univers' Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has been playing both sides by making movies for both Marvel and DC. as for now, he will be helming Suicide Squad 2, and he revealed the cast on Twitter. The list of stars includes famous names like John Cena, Jai Courtney, Nathan Fillion, Peter Capaldi, Idris Elba, and Tinashe Kajeese.

Not forgetting the previous roles taken by a number of actors who will no doubt remain in this sequel like Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag.

Gunn's tweet also included a message suggesting that many of the characters these actors plays won't survive the movie--as is not unusual for Suicide Squad stories in the comics.

As confirmed, producer Peter Safran said that the sequel is a "total reboot," which will no doubt be comforting to fans of the DC comics that were left disappointed by the first movie. Although it wasn't received well critically, the first Suicide Squad broke box office records.

Suicide Squad had one of the highest openings of 2016, behind Captain America: Civil War($179.1 million), Batman v Superman ($166 million), and Finding Dory ($135.06 million). James Gunn is also helming Disney and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
