As James Gunn’s Suicide Squid gears up to start shooting in September, the sequel-cum-reboot has added another new face to its ranks.
Via The Wrap, A Wrinkle in Time’s Storm Reid has signed on to play the daughter of Idris Elba’s character in the film. Elba was initially thought to be taking over the Deadshot role from Will Smith, although it’s since been revealed that Elba will be playing a completely different character.
It’s believed that the majority of 2016’s Suicide Squad – bar Smith and Margot Robbie – will be reprising their roles, and the follow-up has also added David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man.
At present, The Suicide Squad – yes, the sequel to Suicide Squad is titled The Suicide Squad – is currently booked in for an August 2021 release, with Gunn writing and directing the effort.
