Apparently there’s another addition to The Suicide Squad cast. 

According to an Instagram post by Suicide Squad writer-directed James Gunn, Sylvester Stallone has joined the second installation of the film.

“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,” he wrote. 

Stallone confirmed the casting himself by posting a video to Instagram letting fans know that he is on his way to go film a scene for the movie. 

“Working with this incredible Director on this astounding project has made this an amazing year. I am a very lucky man to be surrounded by such talent,” Stallone wrote.

It remains to be seen, however, just how involved Stallone is in the film as Gunn previously confirmed that filming concluded in February.
