Suicide Squad is all set to receive a reboot. James Gunn is at the helm of this new project. The movie is already in production stages. The reboot will be significantly different from the 2016 version. Some stars who were a part of Suicide Squad won’t return for the James Gunn version. One of these names is Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje won’t return for The Suicide Squad
The 51-year old actor played Killer Croc in the previous version. He has now moved on to other things. The role in Suicide Squad required intensive preparation every day. The makeup for Killer Croc used to take no less than five hours each day. Akinnuoye-Agbaje is not willing to go through the same process again. The actor says “I don’t think I need to [do it again], to be honest”. He has a light-hearted take on it too, saying “I did it, I enjoyed it, it bought me a Bentley and I will keep moving on.”
More on the reboot
The new movie will have a mix of stars returning from Ayer’s version and some new ones. Another popular character that won’t return is Jared Leto’s Joker. His fans are quite upset about this.Recently in-production set photos were leaked which show much of the cast in their costumes and makeup. A few photos on social media have also given us a fair idea of many of the newcomers. Idris Elba, Michael Rooker, Peter Capaldi, Nathan Fillion, Sean Gunn, David Dastmalchian, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi and John Cena are the stars that were not a part of the 2016 version but will appear in its reboot.
The Suicide Squad will hit the theaters on August 6, 2021.
