Amanda Waller is putting the team back together for Warner Bros’ latest entry in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), and we have all the details on how you can watch The Suicide Squad online. If you’re familiar with David Ayer’s Suicide Squad film from 2016, you’ll likely recognize a few of its cast members in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. In the new movie, Margot Robbie reprises the role of Harley Quinn along with Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag.
However, several new DC Comics characters will be making their first appearance on the big screen, including Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena), King Shark (voiced by Sylvester Stallone), The Thinker (Peter Capaldi), Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalcian), Blackguard (Pete Davidson) and others. While Warner Bros. initially planned to make a direct sequel to Ayer’s Suicide Squad, he ended up leaving to develop a Gotham City Sirens film instead.
Following his brief departure from Disney back in 2018, James Gunn was hired by Warner Bros. to write and direct a new movie in the DCEU, and he chose to revisit the Suicide Squad. Unlike Ayer’s original film, Gunn’s take on the series is R-rated, much more gritty, and resembles his work on Marvel’s The Guardians of the Galaxy in a lot of ways.
