Suicide Squad stars declare to have named Edmonton Park after Nathan Fillion
The cast of one of the summer’s biggest blockbusters has spoken, and they want a park in Edmonton called the Nathan Fillion Civilian Pavilion.
A petition created two years ago called for an unnamed park in the city to be named after the Suicide Squad star, who was born and raised in Edmonton.
It has now caught the attention of the cast of the film that serves as the sequel to 2016 Suicide Squad.
“This is so funny, I support it 100 percent and I really hope that you are successful in this Edmonton mission,” said Margot Robbie in the Warner Bros. Canada clip on Youtube.
“I believe in it,” added the Harley Quinn actress.
The petition was launched two years ago and has garnered nearly 15,000 signatures since then.
“We hope you succeed in this mission, Edmonton, more than you can ever believe,” said the film’s director, James Gunn.

“I’m intrigued and excited, and I’m excited to see how this story plays out,” added John Cena, who portrays the peacemaker.
Nathan Fillion will play Cory Pitzner / The Detachable Kid (TDK) in the movie.
With the approval of the likes of Margot Robbie and James Gunn, we’ll have to wait and see if the City of Edmonton will name the park the Nathan Fillion Civilian Pavilion.
Until then, check out The Suicide Squad. It hits theaters on August 6th.
