Anyway, keep punching and see you in the movies.”

Gunn took to social media later to confirm the news himself.

“Always love working with my friend @officialslystallone & our work today on #TheSuicideSquad was no exception. Despite Sly being an iconic movie star, most people still don’t have any idea what an amazing actor this guy is. 🙌,” he said.
