James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy franchise) already brings a bit of Marvel superhero experience with him for Warner Bros. DC Comics' flick The Suicide Squad.

A James Gunn favorite is joining his upcoming DC film, The Suicide Squad: Nathan Fillion.
Beloved actor Nathan Fillion - currently appearing on ABC's The Rookie - is reportedly cast in a mystery role in James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.

Equally able to be a smooth-talking schmoozer, a befuddled, beset-upon buffoon, and a dozen things around and in between, he's a chameleon you're always happy to recognize.
