Nathan Fillion's Role in James Gunn's THE SUICIDE SQUAD May Have Been Revealed
While director James Gunn has revealed the full cast of The Suicide Squad, he didn’t reveal the characters that all the new actors who are joining the film are playing. The film has a great cast, and one actor a lot of fans are excited about seeing in the movie is Nathan Fillion.
Well, a couple of new reports have surfaced that might reveal who the actor is playing. According to The Weekly Podcast and That Hashtag Show scooper Charles Murphy, Fillion will play Arm-Fall-Off-Boy! He is one of the most ridiculous characters in DC comics and has the hilarious ability to detach his own limbs, which he can then use as blunt weapons.
If this is true, it’s a seriously awesome character for Fillion to take on, and I can’t wait to see how this character is handled in the movie!
It’s also rumored that Sean Gunn will play Weasel, Flula Borg is Javelin, Pete Davidson is Blackguard, Michael Rooker is Savant, Mayling Ng is Mongal, and Elba might be playing Vigilante.
The rest of the cast includes Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. Other franchise newcomers include Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Storm Reid, Taika Waititi, John Cena, Juan Diego Botto, Joaquin Cosio, Flula Borg, Tinashe Kajese, Jennifer Holland, Julio Ruiz, Alice Braga, Steve Agee and Daniela Melchior.
We have no plot details to share with you regarding the film, but it’s gonna be fun to see what Gunn has planned for these characters! What do you think about Fillion possibly playing Arm-Fall-Off-Boy?
The Suicide Squad is set to open in theaters on August 6th, 2021.
Recent The Weekly Planet Podcast dropped a scoop about some roles in Suicide Squad. While I can't confirm the identity of Elba's character, I can confirm that Fillion is playing Arm-Fall-Off-Boy and the rest of the other non-lead roles discussed in the scoop.
