WASHINGTON: James Gunn, the director of the upcoming DC flick 'The Suicide Squad' recently unveiled a new image from his sequel, which is scheduled to hit theaters and HBO Max simultaneously on August 6.

According to Deadline, Gunn took to his Instagram handle and shared a still from the movie, referring to characters played by actors Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Idris Elba and David Dastmalchian, respectively. In the caption, he wrote, "Squad Undercover in Corto Maltese: Ratcatcher 2, The Thinker, Bloodsport, & Polka Dot Man in TheSuicideSquad."

The upcoming film, which Gunn also wrote, follows an assortment of supervillains and criminals from Belle Reve prison, as they're sent to the island of Corto Maltese, as part of the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X.

This Warner Bros title, produced by DC Films, Atlas Entertainment, and The Safran Company, also stars Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Taika Waititi, Sylvester Stallone, Michael Rooker, Nathan Fillion, Alice Braga, Jai Courtney, John Cena, Viola Davis, Pete Davidson, Sean Gunn, Freddie Stroma, Mikaela Hoover, Jennifer Holland, Flula Borg, Steve Agee, Joaquin Cosio, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Mayling Ng, and Tinashe Kajese.

'The Suicide Squad' is something of a sideways sequel to the 2016 film 'Suicide Squad'. Cena's Peacemaker is expected to be a highlight of the film and is getting his own HBO Max spinoff from Gunn. This is Gunn's first feature since 2017's 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'. He is expected to begin production on a third 'Guardians' film in London later this year.
