Sly confirmed the news in a video that he posted, but has since been deleted telling fans, “Good morning everyone it’s Saturday and I’m on my way over to do a little work with a great director, James Gunn, on Suicide Squad 2 and I think it’s going to be a spectacular effort.”
Director James Gunn also confirmed the news on social media…
Always love working with my friend @TheSlyStallone & our work today on #TheSuicideSquad was no exception. Despite Sly being an iconic movie star, most people still don’t have any idea what an amazing actor this guy is. 🙌 pic.twitter.com/LFVBoxscKR
