Freddie Stroma to Play DC Comics' Vigilante in HBO Max's 'Suicide Squad' Spinoff

Freddie Stroma is joining the DC Comics Universe!

The 34-year-old actor is set to play Vigilante aka Adrian Chase in Peacemaker, the HBO Max spinoff of the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, per TV Line.

The series will focus on the origins of John Cena‘s character from The Suicide Squad and follows Peacemaker, “a man who believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.”

Freddie‘s character is a New York City DA whose wife and kids are killed by mobsters, leading him to seek his own form of justice. He replaces Chris Conrad, who parted ways with the series “amicably due to creative differences” according to Deadline.

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn will write all eight episodes of the series and will also direct several episodes, including the series premiere.

The cast also includes Orange Is the New Black‘s Danielle Brooks (as Leota Adebayo), Scorpion‘s Robert Patrick (as Auggie Smith) and Kroll Show‘s Nhut Le (as Judomaster), with Steve Agee and Jennifer Holland reprising their roles as Belle Reve Penitentiary warden John Economos and ARGUS agent Emilia Harcourt.

Fans may recognize Freddie from his role in another iconic franchise!

Watch the First Trailer for the R-Rated 'The Suicide Squad'!

The trailer for The Suicide Squad is here!

The upcoming film, directed by Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn, features a ton of superstars and familiar faces from 2016′s Suicide Squad, including Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang.

The upcoming film also features Sylvester Stallone, Michael Rooker (Savant), Flula Borg (Javelin), David Dastmalchian (Polka-Dot Man), Daniela Melchior (Ratcatcher2), Idris Elba (Bloodsport), Mayling Ng (Mongal), Sean Gunn (Weasel), Pete Davidson (Blackguard), Peter Capaldi (The Tinkerer), Juan Diego Botto (Presidente General Silvio Luna), Joaquín Cosío (Mayor General Mateo Suarez), Jenn Holland (Emilia Harcourt), Storm Reid (Tyla), Alice Braga (SolSoria) and Nathan Fillion (T.D.K.).

John Cena‘s Peacemaker is also in the film, and he is getting his own HBO Max spinoff.

Here’s a plot summary: “Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.”

Nathan Fillion just addressed rumors about his role in the movie.

The Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 6. Watch the trailer!

WarnerMedia Reacts to #SnyderVerse Fan Demands & Threats: 'Behavior Is Reprehensible'

WarnerMedia is not giving in to fan demands.

Following the release of Zack Snyder‘s Justice League cut on HBO Max, fans have been leading social media campaigns for Warner Bros. to release the David Ayer director’s cut of 2016′s Suicide Squad with #ReleaseTheAyerCut, as well as demanding Zack direct his own version of the comics with #RestoreTheSnyderVerse.

Execs are standing up to the social media campaign in a new interview with Variety after fans began harassing and even threatening the studio.

“We’re not tolerating any of that. That behavior is reprehensible no matter what franchise you’re talking about or what business you’re talking about. It’s completely unacceptable. I’m very disappointed in the fans that have chosen to go to that negative place with regard to DC, with regard to some of our executives,” WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff said.

“It’s just disappointing because we want this to be a safe place to be. We want DC to be a fandom that feels safe and inclusive. We want people to be able to speak up for the things they love, but we don’t want it to be a culture of canceling things that any small faction isn’t happy with. We are not about that. We are about positivity and celebration.”

She also shot down rumors of future projects for a Justice League trilogy with Zack Snyder, saying she’s “very thankful for his many contributions to DC,” but the release of his cut marks “the completion” of the director’s DC films.

“We’re very happy we’ve done this, but we’re very excited about the plans we have for all the multi-dimensional DC characters that are being developed right now.”

She added there are no plans to develop the demanded Suicide Squad cut.

“We wanted to give Zack the opportunity to complete his vision in a four-hour movie, which is impossible to do in theaters. We’re happy that we have HBO Max to let the rope out as it were and allow the fans to see all four hours of Zack’s vision,” she went on to say.

As it turns out, these actors shot their Justice League scenes separately.

Find out why Justice League is presented in 4:3 format.

Ben Affleck & Jared Leto Shot Separately for Zack Snyder's 'Justice League'

WARNING: Justice League spoilers ahead!

Ben Affleck and Jared Leto were never in the same room for Zack Snyder’s Justice League!

The two stars shot their scenes separately for the film, which just debuted on HBO Max, Insider reported.

Almost all of the Zack Snyder cut consists of pre-existing footage from the original production in 2017. There is only one new scene shot last year: the post-apocalyptic Knightmare epilogue involving the return of Jared Leto’s Joker.

Zack always felt the ultimate for him was to see Batman and Joker together in a scene…it was something we thought about while working on the movie but couldn’t figure out how it would fit. So when we had this opportunity to do the movie again he said he really wanted to do it,” said producer Deborah Snyder to Insider.

Zack had talked to Jared a few times about it since Suicide Squad. ‘He was like ‘I don’t know,’ then it went to ‘Okay, maybe’ and then it was finally, ‘Okay.’”

However, the pandemic made shooting with everyone difficult.

The scene features Batman (Affleck), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Mera (Amber Heard), Deathstoke (Joe Manganiello), and the Joker (Leto) preparing to battle Superman (Henry Cavill), who, in the dream, goes evil after a tragedy. And now, it’s been revealed that the scene was filmed without all of these actors ever being on the same set.

“We actually shot Ben separate from Jared,” Deborah Snyder revealed.

“And Ezra was shooting Fantastic Beasts so he was in England and Zack had to direct him over Zoom…It was really fun to be able to do that, to get everyone together to shoot that.”

According to Deborah, the only people who were actually together on set were Ben, Ray, Amber and Joe.
