In addtion to working with returning cast members Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Joel Kinneman (Rick Flag), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller) and new additions John Cena (Peacemaker), Daniela Melchior (Ratcatcher), David Dastmalchian (Polka Dot Man).
Now you can add another high profile name to the list. It is being reported by Forbes that Guardians of the Galaxy actor, Benecio Del Toro is on Gunn’s radar to play the movie’s big bad, a character known as “The General.” It is worth noting there are several established DC Comics villains that have used this moniker, including Wade Ellering and Ulysses Hadrian Armstrong.
