James’ younger brother, Sean Gunn, plays the skilled inventor Calendar Man who resides at the Belle Reve Correctional Facility. Dastmalchian plays the technologically gifted Polka Dot Man, whose unique suit provides him with an array of circular weapons and tools. The Man with Polka Dots is one of the members of the squad that arrives at Corto Maltese alive to complete his “suicide” mission. Although he does not survive until the end of the story, the Man with Polka Dots bravely fights the giant starfish, Starro the Conqueror. Although Calendar Man doesn’t get to see much action, Sean Gunn makes his way into other parts of the film as Batman’s other enemy, Weasel. The creature appears to drown during the airdrop off the coast of Corto Maltese, but is shown to have survived in the post-credits scenes.
The Suicide Squad James Gunn is now in theaters and streaming on HBO Max.
