Sylvester Stallone has joined the cast of the much anticipated The Suicide Squad. The news was shared last week by the iconic actor, then confirmed by the director James Gunn on Instagram.

The two were spotted together in a bar and the picture had the following caption: "Always love working with my friend @officialslystallone and our work today on The Suicide Squad was no exception. Despite Sly being an iconic movie star, most people still don't have any idea what an amazing actor this guy is".

Stallone had a brief cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as Stakar Ogord and the two formed a very special bond on set. He also appeared on one of the many post-credits scenes, teasing a potential involvement for the future MCU phases.

At this moment Stallone's role in this movie remain mysterious but it's worth to know that he's jumped from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the DC side.

The Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters on August 6, 2021. The massive cast will see stars such as John Cena, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, Peter Capaldi, Nathan Fillion, Michael Rooker, Joel Kinnaman, Sean Gunn, Jay Courtney and many more.


Suicide Squad (2016) was PG-13, but this reboot could very well be Rated R and follow the footsteps of Joker and Birds of Prey.
