The Suicide Squad has just wrapped up principal photography earlier this week and now, it appears that some of the cast might have assembled for a kind of Hollywood Celebration — a post-production wrap party. Saturday night, director James Gunn shared a picture on Instagram at The Suicide Squad wrap party along with his girlfriend (and The Suicide Squad star) Jennifer Holland as well as Flula Borg and Mayling Ng. Borg and Ng both have undisclosed roles in the upcoming feature, though both were included in paparazzi set photos that surfaced last year revealing a handful of practical suits involved in the flick.
Gunn had previously commended The Suicide Squad as the most fun set he’s ever worked with, clearly because of the creative freedoms he’s received during the development process.
“Mostly I’ve just grown as a person,” Gunn said last year. “I’m allowing myself to enjoy the movie making process for the first time ever. But also I have the greatest crew I’ve ever had – all of the best folks Vol 1, 2, & 3 assembled together in a super crew. I adore the cast & the producers are some of my best friends in the world (Peter Safran, @simonlikes (Simon Hatt), Chuck Roven). I love my screenplay & I’ve changed up my style of shooting on this one so it’s more fun and visceral. ETC!”
The upcoming DC film is set to star Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag) and Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang) as well as franchise newcomers Idris Elba, Michael Rooker, Peter Capaldi, Nathan Fillion, John Cena, Sean Gunn, David Dastmalchian, Storm Reid, and Taika Waititi.
The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 6, 2021 while Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) actively continues its theatrical release. Other upcoming DC films include Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, The Batman on June 25, 2021, Black Adam on December 22, 2021, Shazam! 2 on April 1, 2022, The Flash on July 1, 2022, and Aquaman 2on December 16, 2022.
