Sean Gunn always seems to be fairly close to whatever his brother James is working on. Most famously of the roles he has taken of his brother’s productions would be as both Kraglin and the On-Set Rocket across the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While James Gunn doesn’t always place his brother in all of his films, it’s a fairly safe bet that Sean at least reads the scripts. While speaking with ComicBook.com recently, Sean was asked if he would be in the upcoming The Suicide Squad, to which he simply replied, “We’ll see.” This, however, did lead to him commenting on the script, saying, “I know that he’s [James] very excited about shooting and now that I have read the script for it and I will say nothing other than that it’s really good. And I know that he’s pretty jazzed about it, so I’m definitely excited to hear what happens next. But they start shooting soon.”
Production is set to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, and it’s expected to kick-off in September.
Even with production so close to commencing, we still don’t have a solid lock on the cast. Currently, Margot Robbie is rumored, but not confirmed, to return as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman looks to be returning as Flagg, and word is that Viola Davis will also reprise her role as Amanda Waller.
As to new characters, David Dastmalchian is confirmed as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior is rumored for a genderswapped Ratcatcher, and we still have no clear indication who Idris Elba is playing. A new rumor, however, points to his character having a daughter, so that narrows down the field a bit. And the final new character rumor has Benicio del Toro possibly up for the role of the film’s villain.
The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
