As production nears, Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad has enlisted two more cast members for the film. The Toronto Sun reports that boxer Raymond Olubowale (who also appeared in two “Resident Evil” films as the “Axeman”) will appear in the film, and eTalk reveals that Scott Eastwood (son of Clint) has a role as well. It’s unclear who either will be playing in the film, but check back here as we learn more.
Written and directed by Ayer, Suicide Squad is set to star Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. The film will hit theaters on August 5, 2016.
Originally created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru back in 1959, the group was retooled into its current iteration as villains working off their sentence by John Ostrander. The team has included countless DC villains (and heroes) among its ranks throughout the years. It’s also been a staple of recent DC media. “Arrow” introduced their own version of the team in the most recent season of the series and the recent animated film, Batman: Assault on Arkham, offered another version of the team.
