The new stars entering the squad include Taika Waititi, Peter Capaldi, Idris Elba, John Cena, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, David Dastmalchian and Daniela Melchior.

According to the list, there is also a considerable number of new names added to the franchise as well.

However, actor Will Smith will not be returning as Deadshot. A few reports hint that Elba would be replacing Smith as the character, while others have made claims that Deadshot will not be in “The Suicide Squad”, and Elba will be playing a new character with a daughter portrayed by Reid.

Well, nothing is yet officially confirmed so these are all mere rumors for the time being. As Gunn and the Warner Bros have not revealed any details about the characters.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” director Gunn has written the second Suicide Squad installment, which will tell the story of a group of super-villains forced by the government to work for good and save mankind.

The Suicide Squad is slated for August 6, 2021 release.
