James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is currently filming in Panama City’s Santa Ana neighborhood. And a new video from Twitter user DCMovieNews2 has possibly revealed who Idris Elba’s character is in the film:
Vigilante Joins The Suicide Squad
So the video isn’t great, but you can see Idris Elba and the outfit he’s wearing. He is going to be playing the character of Vigilante in this new version of Suicide Squad. John Cena is also seen in the videos, but his Peacemaker (if that is indeed his role) is less clear.
Check out the photo of the comic book version of Vigilante below, for comparison’s sake:
What’s also interesting about this is that we don’t quite know who anyone else is playing in this film. Other than, of course, knowing that Margot Robbie will be back as Harley Quinn and Viola Davis will still be Amanda Waller, we really don’t know any of the other characters that will be in this new line-up.
