Suicide Squad Characters – Who could be in The Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad Characters

James Gunn is going for a new cast of characters for The Suicide Squad. This means more than likely we’ll see characters we haven’t before, but who could they be.

We dived deep and found since the launch of the 1987 comic incarnation of Suicide Squad there have been 153 members. A few notes on this, however, in that some characters (especially Deadshot) appeared in multiple versions of the team. They are listed only once. Additionally, we did not include the Silver Age characters unless they appeared in any of the tiles from 1987 to the present day. We also included the real names in case there was any confusion about telling the difference in cases such as Killer Frost and Killer Frost II.

On the very off chance you need a reminder of who appeared in the 2016 Suicide Squad film:

  • Amanda Waller
  • Captain Boomerang
  • Deadshot
  • El Diablo
  • Enchantress
  • Harley Quinn
  • Katana
  • Killer Croc
  • Rick Flag
  • Slipknot

There is always a chance James Gunn may choose to use some of those again, but they could be recast.

With this many characters at Gunn’s disposal, it’s a rich opportunity to dive into Suicide Squad characters that no one would ever expect. Even in the comics some of these characters lasted even less time than Slipknot did in the movie.  Big Sir, for instance, did in Suicide Squad Vol. 2, #1.

Of course, it’s also up to Warner Bros. and DC who they would like to see used. Who could move on to other projects, who they might already have plans for and so on. It’s a good thing there are so many options.

Have a look through the table. You can change how many rows display at once up to 100, search, reorganize, and so on. Then sound off in the comments about which Suicide Squad characters you would like to see on the big screen this time around.
