In a surprise announcement on Saturday, Sylvester Stallone revealed that he will be playing a role in The Suicide Squad.

Stallone took to Instagram to share a video while on his way to a meeting with James Gunn. Stallone reveals that he will be a part of The Suicide Squad. He does not reveal who he will be playing.

Seeing as principal photography ended in early 2020, one imagines this will be a fairly minor role shot in the pickup and reshoots for the film.

Stallone previously worked with Gunn on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 where he played one of the original Guardians, Stakar Ogord, also known as Starhawk.

We’ll just have to wait to see who Stallone is playing, but it could be literally any type of role. Let the speculation run wild.

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