The last time that James Gunn worked with Sylvester Stallone was on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where Stallone played Stakar Ogord. Since principal photography for The Suicide Squad finished nearly a year ago, Sylvester Stallone can’t be filming anything more than a cameo at best. Stallone even mentions having already seen a cut of The Suicide Squad. This could potentially be a tease for a role in a future sequel, or maybe he’s appearing in a post-credit scene.
In an impromptu video message to his followers on Instagram, Sylvester Stallone announced that we would be doing “a little work” with James Gunn on The Suicide Squad. Stallone did not disclose what role he would be playing, but that it will be “well worth the wait.”
“Good morning everyone, it’s Saturday and I’m on my way over to do a little work with a great director, James Gunn, on Suicide Squad 2, and I think it’s gonna be a spectacular effort. I saw it and it’s unbelievable. So, I’m very proud to be included and I can’t tell you anything more about it because you’re going to have to wait and see that, but it’s going to be well worth the wait.
Anyway, keep punching, and see you in the movies.”
Although, it is a tad odd that Sylvester Stallone would be shooting something for The Suicide Squad now when James Gunn’s mandatory quarantine in Vancouver before filming Peacemaker won’t be over for at least another week. But, Gunn could film Sylvester Stallone’s part in a similar way that Zack Snyder did for Ezra Miller.
