Speaking in a video that has since been deleted, the star revealed he was on the way to the movie's set, 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."
"I saw it and it's unbelievable, so I'm very proud to be included and I can't tell you anything more about it because you're going to have to wait and see that but it's going to be well worth the wait," he added, reported ComicBook.com. "Anyway, keep punching and see you in the movies." Gunn later took to social media to confirm the news himself, posting, "Always love working with my friend @officialslystallone & 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."
"The Suicide Squad" is due to hit cinemas in August (21).
Before "The Suicide Squad" is coming out, DC is going to roll out "Wonder Woman 1984". After several delays due to Covid-19 pandemic, the Gal Gadot-fronted film is due Christmas this year. Meanwhile, "The Batman" starring Robert Pattinson is expected to be released on March 4, 2022.
