"This one is completely unique," says producer Peter Safran. "This is a gritty, 1970s war movie combined with the brilliance of James Gunn's characters and comedy." Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Boomerang (Jai Courtney), and Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) will reprise their roles.

The new characters were introduced via the exclusive footage and posters - Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian), Ratcatcher (Daniela Melchior), Javelin (Flula Borg), TDK (Nathan Fillion), and Weasel (Sean Gunn).

"I cannot confirm the exact amount of explosions and crashes, but I will say that we have about as many explosions and crashes in this film as in any film ever," James Gunn said. "In fact, the guy who did all of our special effects on this film — Dan Sudick, who has done almost all of the Marvel movies, great movies — says there are more effects in this film than all of those movies he's done combined. So we have a huge special effect explosion extravaganza for you guys."

The star-studded cast includes Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt, Peter Capaldi as Thinker, Mayling Ng as Mongal, Pete Davidson as Blackguard, Juan Diego Botto as Luna, Storm Reid as Tyla, Joaquin Cosio as General Mateo Suarez, Alice Braga as Sol Soria, J, and Taika Waititi in a secret role.
