“Some of #TheSuicideSquad (and Pom). Many of us are doing weird things in this photo,” Gunn wrote in the caption.
Much like plot details, little is known about Davidson’s role in the film, though Deadline reported in early September that he was in talks for a small cameo. Other cast members include Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Taika Waititi, Nathan Fillion, and Idris Elba. The Suicide Squad is set to be released on August 6, 2021.
Davidson joined the SNL cast in 2014 and has since become a regular guest on the show’s “Weekend Update” sketch alongside anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che. Additionally, Davidson played a sports agent alongside Taraji P. Henson in What Men Want and voiced Jerry in Sony’s The Angry Birds Movie 2.
With more movie roles and cameos likely coming his way, it’s safe to say Davidson may miss a few more SNL episodes this season.
