The Suicide Squad to introduce Zatanna, Amazo, Raven and/or Supergirl?

September 9th, 2019 by Marc Comments

A new rumour from Beyond the Trailer (below) critic Grace Randolph could hit at big things in the Suicide Squad sequel.

Randolph has a chequered history with reports like this, but if she’s right the movie will see the Squad face-off again Amazo – the world’s first fully-functioning android – who has the ability to mimic the abilities of any meta he comes across – could this be the role that Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista was up for?

Anyway, on top of this, the movie may also feature Zatanna, Raven and Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl.

Now, these names are interesting because Zattanna is a core member of the Justice League Dark with John Constantine, Etrigan, Swamp Thing and Deadman. Raven is a core member of the Teen Titans and Supergirl is, well, Supergirl.

Why is this interesting? Because Justice League Dark, Teen Titans and Supergirl are all movies at various stages of development in the DCEU. Could James Gunn’s movie be being used as a back door introduction to these characters?

It’s hardly a new concept in comic book movies, but these are all characters I’d love to see introduced on the big screen universe.

So, Amazo, Zatanna, Supergirl and Raven all up for the grabs in the movie… does this grab your attention?

Let me know your thoughts, guys…

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….
