The Suicide Squad Casts Sylvester Stallone in Mystery Role
Even though many DC Comics fans thought the surprises for The Suicide Squad were already revealed by director James Gunn, it turns out that another massive spoiler just hit the Internet with the confirmation that Sylvester Stallone is joining the cast in a mysterious role. The legendary action star has already worked with Gunn on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and now Stallone has revealed on his Instagram page that he's re-teaming with Gunn for The Suicide Squad. We don't know much about the role right now, but he did post the news alongside this caption: "No rest for the weary but what I do is so enjoyable I don’t even call at work it’s a gift."
In the video Stallone says he is on his way to work with Gunn on the project, and it appears he has already seen a decent amount of footage, as he has nothing but praise for the project and says it is a "spectacular effort" and tells fans it will be more than worth the wait.
"Good morning everyone it's Saturday and I'm in my way over to do a little work with a great director James Gunn on Suicide Squad 2 and I think it's going to be a spectacular effort," Stallone said. "I saw it and it's unbelievable, so I'm very proud to be included and I can't tell you anything more about it because you're going to have to wait and see that but it's going to be well worth the wait. Anyway, keep punching and see you in the movies."
Stallone's role in Guardians was a smaller one but he was superb in the part, and he might have a bigger role to play in Vol. 3, which Gunn will be returning for. Now they've teamed up in the DC Universe as well, and we can't wait to find out more about the role.
