DC fans are only three months away from finally getting to see The Suicide Squad, the highly-anticipated movie from director James Gunn. The film is expected to feature some returning DCEU characters, including Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), and Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman). However, there are also many new characters to look forward to, including Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian). The Suicide Squad may not be out yet, but Polka-Dot Man is already a hit cosplay idea. As soon as the first footage from the movie was revealed during DC FanDome last year, people started cosplaying as the character. Today, Gunn took to Twitter to share the Polka-Dot Man cosplay to end all cosplays because this costume is being worn by a snake!
Last month, the popular Twitter account @Cat_Cosplay shared the photos for April Fool’s Day. The images have made their way to Gunn, who tweeted, “Someone dressed up their snake like Polka-Dot Man.” You can check out the images below:
