On his Instagram story earlier this week, Gunn can be seen posting up next to one storyboard sketch. The sketch in question has yet to be explained by the director himself.

Recently, it was revealed that Idris Elba would not take over the role of Deadshot. While Will Smith decided to not reprise his role, Gunn and co. opted to leave the door open in case he ever wanted to come back for potential future installments.
That said, Elba will instead be cast as another character.
Gunn is reportedly still on the lookout to fill the rest of the cast. However, the Suicide Squad is set to start production this fall, with a slated release of Aug. 6, 2021.
What character do you think the storyboard sketch depicts? Sound off in the comments below.
