James Gunn addressed whether or not Peter Capaldi will have a big role in The Suicide Squad.

Warner Bros.’ The Suicide Squad is set to offer a new take on the supervillain team from director James Gunn, who will incorporate both old favorites from the first film and fresh faces to the DC Extended Universe. Among the newcomers to James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is former Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi, who has been cast in an undisclosed role.

Of course, the size of the cast and the inherent concept of a team assembling for missions where death is nearly certain has some fans wondering if Peter Capaldi will have a large role in The Suicide Squad or if his appearance might amount to a cameo appearance. On Instagram, one fan asked James Gunn directly about the size of Peter Capaldi’s role, prompting The Suicide Squad director to confirm that the former Doctor Who star will have a big part to play in the film.
