Born as Abner Krill, Polka-Dot Man turns the polkadots covering his costume into various weapons, including flying buzzsaws, fists and more. A lesser-known Batman villain, Polka-Dot Man was introduced in Detective Comics #300 and is sure to make an interesting addition to The Suicide Squad.
Polka-Dot Man was one of the characters involved in an alleged leak of The Suicide Squad’s lineup, which also included Ratcatcher, King Shark and Peacemaker. A later rumor suggested actor and WWE wrestler John Cena is in talks to play Peacemaker.
Idris Elba is set to play a new character in the film following the decision to not have him take over the Deadshot role out of respect to Will Smith. He will reportedly be joining Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang and Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller.
