Director James Gunn unveiled the cast of The Suicide Squad at DC FanDome, officially revealing which DC Comics characters (and the actors playing them) are on the team’s roster in this follow-up to the 2016 film.
While we knew Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), and Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) were all back for the sequel, the rest of the characters hadn’t been confirmed or even disclosed before Saturday’s panel.
For every badass new character in the mix, though, there are also several wacky inclusions, D-listers who are likely to serve as darkly humorous cannon fodder in an action film where the protagonists are, by their very nature, expendable.
In the DC Comics, Bloodsport is a Superman foe and has been a few different people throughout the character’s history. The character first appeared in Superman #2 in 1987 and was created by John Byrne and Karl Kesel.
Elba’s costume certainly looks different from Bloodsport’s comic book outfit. How about that mask! That menacing maw almost makes it look like a Xenomorph’s face.
