Sylvester Stallone will be joining the second chapter in DC movies’ Suicide Squad.
Stallone first announced the news in a deleted video on Instagram, followed by another post that confirmed his casting. Now, director James Gunn has acknowledged Sly’s part in the film via Twitter.
Gunn said on Social media, “Always love working with my friend @officialslystallone & our work today on #TheSuicideSquad 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 fired back, saying, “Working with this incredible Director on this astounding project has made this an amazing year,” wrote Stallone on Instagram. “I am a very lucky man to be surrounded by such talent.”
Stallone will be joining Margot Robbie, Idris Elba and Pete Davidson in the film.
Suicide Squad 2 is slated to hit theaters in August 2021.
