The Suicide Squad director James Gunn reveals he considered using the offbeat villain Dogwelder in his upcoming DC Extended Universe movie.
The Suicide Squad director James Gunn considered using Dogwelder in his upcoming movie. Like 2016’s Suicide Squad, the film will feature several DC villains who are forced to team up. Some members of the original cast, such as Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, and Joel Kinnaman, will be back. However, many more new DC Extended Universe actors will be introduced, including Nathan Fillion and Michael Rooker. Notably, Gunn has already worked with both on the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. All told, The Suicide Squad offers a good number of big name actors, many of whom have appeared in superhero movies before.
However, until this month, many of their characters remained a mystery. Of course, set photos and other leaks offered clues of who certain actors might be playing, but audiences didn’t receive confirmation until DC FanDome. There, a video was released revealing the impressive lineup of DC characters. Some of the company’s most zany villains were included, such as Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian). The inclusion of many offbeat villains makes sense, as Gunn recently said DC didn’t stop him from using any characters in The Suicide Squad.
