    • Flula Borg
    • Sean Gunn
    • Jean Diego Botto
    • Storm Reid
    • Pete Davidson
    • Taika Waititi
    • Alice Braga
    • Steve Agee
    • Tinashe Kajese

    Is John Cena actually a good actor?

    He's going through his awkward phase, like the beginning of the Rock's acting career.

    Less charismatic Rock but better at comedy.

    He's really good in a comedic capacity, which works well for Gunn's style.

    I imagine he'll play out similar to Batista, who Gunn also helped shape. So should be okay.

    Reluctantly agree. He's like... pretty fucking charismatic, it's just that The Rock is one of the most charismatic people ever.

    Getting so many people like this was a good idea.

    A Suicide Squad movie benefits from a bloated cast.

    It's a weird thing. It's not really a sequel, but not really a reboot or a remake? It's almost like they're pretending the first one never happened.

    It was basically done to try and sweep up James Gunn after Disney fired him, with WB figuring since he did Guardians he could save Suicide Squad and take something good that Disney threw away.

    Then again, Disney has him back now too, so...

    They keep changing their story and different people involved are saying different things lol. It's confusing because they're reusing some actors.

    I was hoping for Batista, but Michael Rooker is just as good. :catwave
