Based on statements made by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje -- who portrayed Killer Croc in 2016's Suicide Squad -- fans probably shouldn't expect to see the character return in director James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.
“I don’t think I need to [do it again], to be honest I did it, I enjoyed it, it bought me a Bentley and I will keep moving on," the actor said when speaking with Yahoo Movies UK.
Suicide Squad wasn't Akinnuoye-Agbaje's first appearance in a comic book film, as the actor also appeared in 2013's Thor: The Dark World as Kurse. The actor also mentioned he was up for the role of T'Challa in Black Panther, though it ultimately went to Chadwick Boseman.
Though Akinnuoye-Agbaje likely won't reprise his role, several other alums from Suicide Squad will return in The Suicide Squad, including Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn,.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters Aug. 6, 2021. Also joining the cast are David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Joaquin Cosio, Nathan Fillion, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Idris Elba and Michael Rooker.
