Sylvester Stallone has joined The Suicide Squad in a mystery role. Stallone has had an incredibly successful acting career as an actor and director, with Rocky in 1976 really launching him into stardom. Stallone starred in several action flicks throughout the ’80s and ’90s, but has still managed to remain in the spotlight by appearing in new installments of the Rocky and Rambo franchises.
The Suicide Squad is a soft reboot over a direct sequel, so only certain characters are returning from David Ayer’s 2016 film. Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney are returning as Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang, as are Viola Davis (Amanda Waller) and Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg). While these are the only known returning cast members, Gunn has built anticipation for his film by including a number of lesser-known DC villains with big stars attached. Nathan Fillion (T.D.K.), Idris Elba (Bloodsport), and John Cena (Peacemaker) are some of the stand out examples, but the team in The Suicide Squad has grown substantially from the first movie, with over a dozen supervillains making their big-screen debut. Now, The Suicide Squad‘s cast has gained another big star.
Stallone recently posted a video to his Instagram where he revealed that he was on his way to go film a scene for The Suicide Squad. Unsurprisingly, Stallone wasn’t able to reveal his role but says that the movie is going to be worth the wait. Stallone’s full video can be seen below:
