It appears that James Gunn has finished finding his Suicide Squad.

Over the weekend, Gunn responded online to whether or not he had found all of the main members for his upcoming The Suicide Squad. His simple reply was “Yessssss” followed by a smiling emoji.

As it stands right now, about the only cast member competely confirmed beyond rumors or reports is David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man. There is a ton of evidence for others, but nothing concrete. With Gunn having wrapped up casting now by his own admission, hopefully the announcements will be coming sooner rather than later. Nobody likes to be kept in suspese.

Some of the rumored cast members we’ve heard about include John Cena for Peacemaker, while Daniela Melchior is rumored for a genderwapped Ratcatcher. and it’s still up in the air who Idris Elba will be playing. Seeing as James Gunn is favoring the John Ostrander run of the series, speculation is high on Bronze Tiger.

As for returning cast from 2016’s Suicide Squad include Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and possibly Joel Kinnaman as Flagg.

The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
