Ok, so it has been confirmed that more than one Justice League member is showing up in next week's Suicide Squad. We already knew that Batman would have a heavy presence in this epic super villain adventure. And now it seems Ezra Miller's The Flash will be joining him. Which is news to the one co-star who shares screen time with the scarlet speedster. Yes, that's right, even though The Flash is responsible for the capture of Captain Boomerang, Jai Courtney had no idea what was going on in that scene until earlier this week, when the cameo leaked. He says this.
"It was news to me! When I saw the movie, that was the first I knew of it. Whether it was something they knew or not, it was never mentioned [to me]. And so I am probably of the belief that was all by design in order to fucking, you know, just keep it [secret]. I don't know how it got leaked, but I would have assumed they wouldn't have dropped that gem until, you know, they would have just let people see the movie."
So, basically, The Flash was either a late addition to the movie, with those scene repurposed during the reshoots. Or the spoiler hounds on the Internet ruined the big surprise. As you can see by his statement, Jai Courtney did not shoot the scene opposite his co-star Ezra Miller, and the two weren't on set together. Which all makes it sound like an afterthought and a late addition to the movie. But Courtney does verify that The Flash has made it into the final cut. Are there other Justice League cameos we don't know about yet? Well, Aquaman has long been rumored to show up for a few minutes of screen time, but that could have long ago changed.
According to Cinema Blend, Captain Boomerang is captured by The Flash, and brought to Belle Reve prison. It is here that he is recruited to join the ensemble of super villains for a secret mission by Amanda Waller. One that might not bring him back alive. Though, the character is rumored to get his own spin-off movie.
In other Suicide Squad news, photographer Clay Enos has posted a never-before-seen image of Dr. Harleen Quinzel (Margot Robbie) getting intimately close to The Joker (Jared Leto). We also have another TV spot, this one focusing on the deadly Killer Croc. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje shows off just how much self-esteem this DC Comics character is carrying around in his back pocket. Not bad for a guy who is bound to give you nightmares just by looking at him.
It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?
