Pete Davidson has revealed costume details for his character in James Gunn’s upcoming The Suicide Squad.
James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is set to introduce a flurry of new characters to the DC Extended Universe, most of which we don’t know. Plot details for the upcoming comic book film have been shrouded in secrecy, so much so that we don’t even know who half its actors are playing. One new addition to the Suicide Squad franchise is SNL star Pete Davidson, who recently got thrust into the limelight with his new project The King of Staten Island.
Speaking with Yahoo Movies UK to promote The King of Staten Island, Pete Davidson was asked about The Suicide Squad and how it differed from his newly-released comedy. The star kept mum on explicit details for the upcoming James Gunn film but he did reveal some stuff regarding his costume.
“I was in a big, uncomfortable costume, I think that would be a big difference. I got to hold Glocks and stuff like that.”
While we don’t know who Pete Davidson will be playing in The Suicide Squad, we do know what his costume will look like thanks to set photos snapped last year. His description of the suit: “big, uncomfortable”, is pretty spot on considering it looks like he’s playing a heavily militarized character. He followed up his suit comments by revealing that he has guns in the film, which perfectly matches the aesthetic of his costume. It remains to be seen if he’ll be playing a super-powered character in the James Gunn project.
