The Suicide Squad, one of the most anticipated upcoming DC films that's still (fingers crossed!) on track for its August 6, 2021 release, is unusual in that it's both a sequel and a reboot of a relatively recent film. The original 2016 Suicide Squad performed well at the box-office but fell flat with critics and fans. Writer and director James Gunn of Guardians of the Galaxy fame was brought on board to right the project and find success.
While Gunn is active on social media and in communicating with fans, he's been keeping the details of this film under wraps. But with the DC FanDome and The Suicide Squad's panel merely days away, that's all about to change...
Flula Borg, comedian and member of The Suicide Squad cast, tweeted out a behind-the-scenes remix video teasing the The Suicide Squad panel for the DC FanDome this Saturday which was then shared by the film's director James Gunn.
Flula Borg joined the cast last year and is rumored to play a love interest for one of the film's characters. Borg joins a star-studded cast that's both a blend of new and returning characters including Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. New members to the cast include Michael Rooker, John Cena, Nathan Fillion, and Taika Waititi.
WHAT THIS MEANS
This hilarious video confirms that The Sucide Squad panel is an absolute must-see during the DC FanDome. Fans were already curious about James Gunn's take on these characters and his high profile cast, but the energy and tone from this teaser sells the fact that this panel is going to be wildly entertaining as well as informative.
Borg's video also offers a sneak peek at what a social distanced, virtual panel will be like. Fans are used to seeing the cast on stage in front of a crowd following a rehearsed, regimented-style schedule. The alternative format for a panel may allow the cast to be more relaxed and personal, and with a cast like Gunn's, guaranteed hilarious.
