Nathan Fillion will be playing Arm-Fall-Off-Boy in The Suicide Squad according to a new rumor.

According to Charles Murphy, well-known for his mostly accurate scoops, Nathan Fillion will be playing the obscure Arm-Fall-Off-Boy in James Gunn’s forthcoming The Suicide Squad. Nathan Fillion’s role first came to light on The Weekly Planet podcast where Nathan Fillion’s role, as well as other non-lead actor’s roles were discussed for The Suicide Squad. Charles Murphy later took to Twitter to confirm that the roles mentioned on The Weekly Planet are in fact factual.

Interestingly, there wasn’t any comment on Idris Elba’s character in The Suicide Squad, which makes sense considering he’ll be playing a lead character. On the other hand, Nathan Fillion and the rest of the secondary-cast will most likely be seen in glorified cameos who will most likely be killed off by virtue of the general Suicide Squad premise.

Per Charles Murphy’s confirmation, Sean Gunn will be playing Weasel, Micheal Rooker is Savant, Peter Davidson stars as Blackguard, Flula Borg is Javelin, and Mayling Ng is Mongal. Nathan Fillion’s Arm-Fall-Out-Below is a character that can remove his limbs and use them as weapons.

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences. The sequel will see the return of four cast members from that film: Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag. James Gunn is expected to deliver on the fresh take on the supervillain team in his upcoming movie, with Idris Elba playing a new character on the team, David Dastmalchian starring as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, and Steve Agee voicing King Shark. Other cast members confirmed for the ensemble picture include John Cena, Storm Reid, Flula Borg, Nathan Fillion, Taika Waititi, Peter Capaldi, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng, Jennifer Holland, Pete Davidson, Juan Diego Botto, Alice Braga, Tinashe Kajese, Julio Ruiz, and Joaquín Cosío.
