September 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

Oooooooh… when worlds collide.

Seems like Peter Capaldi, the last actor to star in Doctor Who before the current Doctor, is stepping into a role in James Gunn’s Suicide Squad sequel.

On top of that, it seem SNL’s Pete Davison is in talks to have a small role in the movie too, while word is Capaldi’s role is pretty much signed up and ready to rock.

On top of that, the new reports are that the movie’s first table read is on September 11th while production will kick-off on September 23rd.

The Suicide Squad as it’s called, while not a direct sequel to the first movie, will see Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang) and Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag) return while Idris Elba, David Dastmalchian (Polka-Dot Man), Daniela Melchior (Ratcatcher), Flula Borg, Steve Agee (King Shark), Nathan Fillion and Taika Waititi has all joined the cast too..

Gunn has previously confirmed that the movie will rely on music as much as Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies, although in a different way.

Say what you want about Gunn but he has assembled a heck of a cast.

The Squad returns on June 19th, 2020.

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….
