After a weekend of non-stop Disney and Marvel Studios announcements over at D23 Expo, there’s finally some news for the DC fans. And it has to do with none other than Nathan Fillion.
Deadline confirms that the actor will join writer and director James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Unfortunately, his role is currently unknown as the studio is doing everything to keep it under wraps, so it’s fan speculation on the Internet for the moment.
This is the fourth collaboration between the two, with Fillion previously playing different roles in Slither, Guardians of the Galaxy and Super.
Up until now, The Suicide Squad counts with the talents of Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney and Joel Kinnaman reprising their roles from David Ayers’ Suicide Squad, and a new set of cast-members; including Idris Elba, which his character has not been revealed yet either.
The Warner Bros. film wouldn’t be Fillion’s first time interpreting a DC character as he’s been the voice of Green Lantern in various DC animated features like the recent Reign of the Supermen, Justice League: Doom, Robot Chicken: DC Comics Special and The Death of Superman. The Castle actor is also known for many voice actor roles throughout various media outlet, such as the Halo franchise, Disney Channel’s Gravity Falls, Netflix’s Big Mouth, Rick and Morty, etc.
The Suicide Squad is James Gunn’s first DC feature film and is set for a 2021 release date.
