Loads of leaked images from The Suicide Squad appear online with lots of new and returning cast members

October 19th, 2019 by Marc Comments

We have a load of leaked images from The Suicide Squad, James Gunn’s sequel to Suicide Squad.

The images feature many of the core cast – new and retuning – and shouldn’t be taken as being  representative of the final thing.

The first batch of images feature Jai Courtney, back as Captain Boomerang, along with  new members  Nathan Fillion as Arm-Fall-Off-Boy, Pete Davidson as Blackguard, Michael Rooker – rumoured to be King Shark – , Flula Borg as Javelin, Sean Gunn as Weasel, and Mayling Ng as Superman big bad Mongul – all these castings are rumoured so far.

These images have been getting a lot of abuse online for the apparent ‘cheap’ look of them – but a couple of things are worth noting. Firstly, set images rarely match the final thing seen on screen and secondly, I have a feeling these suits may be looking a rough as this for a reason as I’m betting these characters – or most of them – may be the first Suicide Squad in the movie and may come to a quick end before the other, main, team are brought in.

That said, I do love that they are dipping into some of the craziest corners of the DC Universe… Arm-Fall-Off-Boy?! Really?

Check the images out here:

The next batch feature Idris Elba, John Cena, and Daniela Melchior as, again rumoured, Vigilante, Peace Maker and – this is confirmed – Rat-Catcher.

Also featured is returning Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, the person responsible for putting together Task Force X AKA Suicide Squad.

It’s worth noting that the others are obviously in their prison gear, so likely before they are all assembled for whatever mission they are sent on this time.

Check them out here:

The final image has Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi with Mayling Ng. While we know nothing of the part Capaldi is playing, we can see he has the new shaved head look and my speculation is that he could be either Victor Fries AKA Mr Freeze or Hugo Strange… but this is, of course, just a guess.

Here’s the image:

The Suicide Squad is due in cinemas in August 2021

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
