We may not know much about James Gunn’s upcoming film The Suicide Squad, but Kevin Smith apparently does and has nothing but positive things to say about the film’s antagonist.
During his latest installment of his Fatman Beyond podcast, Kevin Smith talked a bit about the upcoming film. He asks the audience if they know who the villain is for the upcoming film before stating that he did. He then says that he can’t talk about it and that he may have heard about it privately:
Does anybody know who the villain is for [The Suicide Squad]? Alright, I do, and I just can’t say it then. Because I thought everybody knew and I was about to say… I might have heard that privately.
Kevin Smith then goes on to say that the villain for the upcoming film is “phenomenal” and is in the right hands with James Gunn:
I’m not gonna spill it, but if it is what I heard, it is f—king phenomenal. And boy is it in the right hands with James Gunn.

The first Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences with an ensemble cast that included Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as The Joker. James Gunn is expected to deliver on the new take on the supervillain team in his upcoming movie, with Idris Elba playing a new character, Jai Courtney reprising his role as Captain Boomerang, David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, and Viola Davis returning as Amanda Waller. John Cena reportedly in talks for an undisclosed role while Michael Rooker is said to be eyed for the role of King Shark.
The Suicide Squad is one of many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC. The list also includes The Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey, Black Adam, Nightwing, Supergirl and New Gods.
The Suicide Squad will be released in theaters on August 6, 2021.
