You Probably Missed a \u2018Guardians of the Galaxy\u2019 Cameo in \u2018The Suicide Squad\u2019
James Gunn might have just created a crossover between The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy.
The director of the new supervillain DC movie has opened up on casting Pom Klementieff, known for playing Mantis on Guardians, in a surprise cameo that very few people seem to have noticed.
In a scene in The Suicide Squad, characters Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior) and Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian) go into a bar called La Gatita Amable on Corto Maltese. Their goal is to kidnap highly-intelligent supervillain The Thinker, played by Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi.
In the establishing shots, some eagle-eyed viewers might be able to spot Klementieff dancing on stage in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment. It is a brief appearance and the actress doesn’t have any lines, but the cameo might be a hopeful clue for those fans who wish to see a DC and Marvel crossover one day.
Gunn, who also directed both Guardians of the Galaxy movies, weighed in on the connection between The Suicide Squad and Guardians in a recent appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.
The director and writer revealed he had asked Dave Bautista, who plays Drax the Destroyer on Guardians, to join the cast of The Suicide Squad.
“People know I almost cast Dave [Bautista] in a role and he couldn’t do it, so he didn’t,” Gunn said.
“But other than that, well, there might be a Guardian somewhere in the film that no one has seen yet, and I’m so surprised by… I’ve gotten a hundred reviews from this movie and I just am astounded,” Gunn said, presumably referring to Klementieff.
The director also recently addressed the decision-making behind killing off characters in the new movie.
Gunn simply explained that all deaths served the story, adding: “There were some characters that I chose and I knew that when I chose those characters, they were gonna die.
“And some of them were gonna die earlier and some of them were gonna die later, but then sometimes, when you’re crafting a story, part of it is just following instinct.”
