With The Suicide Squad right around the corner, it should be no surprise that we’ll be seeing the cast making the rounds on the late night show circuit, and just recently we got to see stars Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and John Cena (Peacemaker), as well as writer/director James Gunn, make an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
And, of course, Cena showed up in his full Peacemaker outfit, as he’s done for months on these types of shows.
During this segment, they talked about some of the things to expect in the upcoming film, showed a couple of clips, including one that had never been seen before, showing the hilarity of King Shark.
James Gunn spoke about some of the more difficult scenes he had both Margot Robbie and John Cena perform, including one where Margot had to unlock herself from hanging handcuffs with her feet. Margot also shared a hilarious story about her relationship to John Cena prior to ever meeting him.
This was a great segment, and I am so excited to see The Suicide Squad when it opens up next month. Check out the full clip below:
In The Suicide Squad, the government sends the most dangerous supervillains in the world — Bloodsport, Peacemaker, King Shark, Harley Quinn and others — to the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Armed with high-tech weapons, they trek through the dangerous jungle on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Col. Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave. However, things aren’t quite what they seem.
The film stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Michael Rooker, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Joaquín Cosio, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Nathan Fillion, Steve Agee, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Jennifer Holland, and Tinashe Kajese, with Sylvester Stallone and Viola Davis. James Gunn directs from his own screenplay, based on characters from DC.
The Suicide Squad opens in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6.
