A relative unknown (at least in the US) has been tapped to join James Gunn's "The Suicide Squad."

Portuguese actress Daniela Melchior will play Ratcatcher, a Batman enemy who was a man in the comics. She'll reportedly have a connection to the as-yet-unknown character Idris Elba will be playing.

They join fellow newcomers John Cena and and David Dastmalchian, as well as returning "Suicide Squad" stars Margot Robbie,  Viola Davis and Jai Courtney.

Gunn is writing and directing the DCEU movie, which is expected to go into production this fall. It has a release date of August 6, 2021.

This will be Melchior’s first major studio role: She's mainly worked in Portuguese film and television.
