The new entries in the sequel are indeed a long list but their characters in the movie are not confirmed till now. There are various rumours related to the characters played by the new cast members but nothing is officially confirmed for now.
Suicide Squad 2: What will be the plotline?
As the movie’s producer Peter Safran has called it a “total reboot” and not a sequel we can’t play our guessing game here. As we don’t know what may happen inside. Previously the assumed plot was following the basic outline of all Suicide Squad stories where Amanda Waller is dispatching her team on a mission where it is doubtful that they would make it out alive.
But this is no longer applicable. Though, it is revealed by star Joel Kinnaman that the sequel is going to be a funny one. But we never know what the word “funny” exactly means there.
