The upcoming film will reportedly be a soft reboot of Task Force X. While it will feature characters from 2016’s David Ayer-led Suicide Squad, many fans except a completely different tone. Gunn recruited a litany of A-list talent for the film and spent many months filming scenes in Central America. Additionally, set footage and photos have provided fans with tidbits to look forward to. Among them are Harley Quinn’s new look, John Cena as a bad guy, and Idris Elba taking the lead.
