James Gunn Reveals Full 'Suicide Squad' Cast and It's Not As Exciting As Everybody Hoped
James Gunn was brought into the realm of the DC Extended Universe to write and direct the next iteration of ‘Suicide Squad’ after the 2016 version flopped hard with critics and fans alike.
Gunn is thought to be a potential savior of the series given his illustrious track record with the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ franchise. Therefore, when he revealed the full cast list on Instagram yesterday, plenty of media outlets and comic book aficionados went wild with their knee-jerk reactions, praising the names and raising the expectations of what’s to come.
However, once the initial excitement wanes, how good is this lineup, really? Nearly half the names aren’t recognizable to the average moviegoer and others, like Pete Davidson, are mystifying to say the least. From the perspective of simply being fans of film, we hope Gunn is able to make a solid flick, but it’s already off to a rough start.
