A rumor claiming that Zatanna was set to make her big-screen debut in The Suicide Squad did the rounds recently, but director James Gunn has now debunked the report while also teasing more casting news…
A rumor did the rounds a while ago (we didn’t run it ourselves, but it was out there) which claimed that Zatanna was set to make her big-screen debut in The Suicide Squad, but fans of the popular DC magic-wielder will be disappointed to hear that she will not be appearing in the movie.
Director James Gunn responded to a fan’s query about Zatanna over Twitter, making it clear that he never so much as considered adding her to the ensemble.
I have nothing against Zatanna, but I have no idea where some of this stuff comes from. I never even thought of including her in #TSS (nor many of the other characters I keep hearing are in the film). I can’t comment on every rumor but just know many aren’t true. !sromur yawA https://t.co/fPTB510I77

Gunn did confirm that more casting news is imminent, however.
The Suicide Squad has already assembled a massive cast of new and returning characters, so it is somewhat surprising to discover that Task Force X is going to be bolstered by even more new recruits.
As for Zatanna, last we heard Warner Bros. did have plans for solo movie featuring the character, but there’s been no updates since.
