The Suicide Squad Who’s Who: full cast and character reveal

Stallone originally posted an IG video of himself announcing his involvement in The Suicide Squad, but it has since been deleted. You can watch the original video here.

So who could Stallone be playing in the Suicide Squad given the film’s wrapped main photograph? And also that Stallone himself says he “saw” the movie (link above)? Maybe it’s a voice role. Perhaps Weasel of King Shark (although at least the physical forms for these roles are played by Steve Agee and Sean Gunn, respectively).

Meanwhile, HBO Max has announced additional cast members for its upcoming Peacemaker series, starring John Cena, who is based on the character from Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
