Yondu and Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Looks like James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad may have found its King Shark. As the “soft reboot” nears production, there are rumors that Michael Rooker is in talks to play the deep sea felon who joins the titular villain team on a dangerous mission. More on the report below.

Sources tell The Wrap that Rooker is in talks to play King Shark. Should he sign on, it wouldn’t be the first time that the actor has collaborated with Gunn. He played Yondu, the blue-skinned Ravenger, in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

David Dastmalchian

It’s not unusual for James Gunn to include characters who might be considered misfits, outsiders, or troublemakers. That couldn’t have been truer in the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films. But now he is putting together a new cast of misfits in The Suicide Squad. The soft reboot will bring back Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller to reprise their respective characters. They will be joined by Idris Elba, who will reportedly play a new character and not be replacing Will Smith as Deadshot; and John Cena, who is said to be in negotiations for a role in the film as well.

Now there are reports that confirm David Dastmalchian and Daniela Melchior will be added. According to these reports, Dastmalchian will be playing Polka-Dot Man, while Melchior will play Ratcatcher. More on this below.

James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad will be a soft reboot. Some of the cast from the original like Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller will return to reprise their respective roles. Others like Idris Elba will play new characters that were never before seen in a DCEU franchise.

Now, Task Force X might be adding some more muscle to the group. Literally. According to new reports, John Cena is in talks to join the team. More on the report below.

‘The Suicide Squad’: Viola Davis Returning; Idris Elba Not Playing Deadshot

The Dark Tower Idris Elba as Roland Deschain

The fact that we are getting James Gunn films from both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DCEU is a gift. After the director was fired by Disney on their third Guardian of the Galaxy film – but before he was subsequently reinstated – Gunn was brought in to write and direct The Suicide Squad. The new film, which was considered to be a soft reboot at the time, is not loosely using the term, as characters and actors from David Ayer‘s original film are returning. Jai Courtney will be back to play Captain Boomerang, and now Viola Davis will return as Amanda Waller.

However, Idris Elba, who was tapped to replace Will Smith as Deadshot, is no longer being considered for the role of the assassin with deadly accuracy. More on the report here below.

Captain Boomerang

Before James Gunn can sail through space with the Guardians of the Galaxy for the third time, he’s going to be directing a different kind of misfits in the DC Extended Universe film The Suicide Squad. And though the film is being considered a reboot, with actors like the departing Will Smith being replaced by Idris Elba as Deadshot and other actors like Margot Robbie being rumored to return, it looks like the filmmaker will be mixing in some memorable rogues with very obscure criminals.

According to new reports, Jai Courtney is said be coming back to play as Captain Boomerang. At least that’s what he’s telling us. Find out what he had to say about his “return” below.

David Ayer Admits He Should Have Done ‘Suicide Squad’ Differently

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto

Suicide Squad may not be the most popular film amongst critics and some fans, but it was one of the top-grossing films of last year. Warner Bros. third entry of the DC Extended Universe was polarizing in more ways than one. The loyal fanbase supported the film even though critics eviscerated it for having too many plotholes and a lack of character motivation. But if there is one thing that Suicide Squad suffered from the most, it’s the fact that the marketing campaign failed to deliver its promise on giving us the Joker (Jared Leto). Sure the Clown Price of Crime was in the film, but trailers and TV spots had assured us he would be a vital plot point. Instead, he was an unnecessary factor. Even Leto voiced his displeasure saying that he shot enough footage for a Joker movie. The extended edition supports that fact.

Suicide Squad Review

Aside from the narrative and pacing flaws of Suicide Squad, one thing the film mishandled was the way we saw the Joker (Jared Leto). As much as the marketing campaign hyped the character, we saw very little of the Clown Prince Of Crime. In fact, Leto, who himself was unhappy that there was so very little of him, said he shot enough footage to make his own movie.

Now, a new trailer to help promote the release of the Suicide Squad Extended Edition Blu-ray shows us how much of that Joker footage we were promised, plus a few other scenes that were in the original trailers but gone from the final cut.

Check it out below.

After over a year of steadily-building pre-release hype that had even beings living on distant planets aware of its release, Suicide Squad – the latest potential blockbuster from Warner Bros.’ cinematic DC Universe headlined by some of their most notorious supervillains – is here. Early reviews have ranged from mixed at best to tear-inducing negative at worst and as a result, members of the film’s cast and crew, including writer/director David Ayer and co-star Cara Delevingne, have been put on the defensive during promotional interviews.

Suicide Squad Review

Suicide Squad
Director: David Ayers
Screenwriter: David Ayer
Cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: August 5, 2016

Suicide Squad should have been a lot better than this. Much better. Trailers sold us the idea that the film was about bad versus evil, with the bad guys being played by an all-star cast. Then the marketing threw in some awesome music, and the anticipation for DC’s version of the Dirty Dozen only grew. Sure enough, we all thought that this was the one film that the DCEU needed to break the negative streak that it has been on. It has all the right pieces laid out before them to be a great movie. However, maybe we should reserve that hope for another DCEU film because although Suicide Squad isn’t the worst comic book movie ever, it sure as hell one of the most disappointing ones.
