After his banishment from Marvel and before his return, writer/director James Gunn is taking a brief foray into the DC Extended Universe and it looks like he is bringing at least one of his Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3. actors with him. According to Deadline, Nathan Fillion, who played a cameo role as in inmate in the first Guardians, will be joining The Suicide Squad in an as-yet-unrevealed role.
Though Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney and Joel Kinnaman will return as Harley Quinn, Amanda Waller, Captain Boomerang and Rick Flagg, respectively, the movie has been described more as a relaunch of the franchise than a direct sequel to Suicide Squad.
The Suicide Squad is slated to be released in theaters on August 6, 2021.
The Batman is slated for release on June 25, 2021.
After telling Warner Bros. that he couldn’t film the sequel to Aquaman because he got run over by a bulldozer while protesting construction of the $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope at Mauna Kea, Hawaii, Jason Momoa got stuck in an elevator with his dog and several friends for two hours. The beleaguered actor later took to social media to ask his fans to please respect his privacy and not ask for photos with him while he is with his family.
I’m out on a beautiful little stroll with my daughter and we’re just enjoying our ice cream, or what’s left of it. And if you see me, I’m probably not going to take pictures with you because I’m having time with my family. Thanks for the respect.
