Suicide Squad is about to go into production, but director David Ayer is still adding to the cast. We’ve already got 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, but now, according to The Toronto Sun and etalk (via ComingSoon), we can add Scott Eastwood and Raymond Olubowale to the roster as well. There’s been no confirmation on who they’re playing, but with filming coming up, hopefully we’ll get some official details soon.
Eastwood has been building up his resume big time since appearing in some of his father’s films including Flags of Our Fathers and Gran Torino. He stars in the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation, The Longest Ride, which is due in theaters on April 10th, and he also has Oliver Stone’s Snowden on the way as well.
Olubowale is a heavyweight boxer and actor. There’s no way you’d recognize him thanks to the sack over his head, but he does play the Axeman in Resident Evil: Afterlife and Retribution. According to Latino Review, he may join Suicide Squad as King Shark, a humanoid shark with superhuman strength, powerful teeth and claws, and regeneration abilities. Seems like a role that could certainly work for Olubowale, but again, there’s no confirmation on whether the report is true or not.
In other Suicide Squad news, Ayer’s been busy sharing pre-production photos via Twitter and the latest teased Arkham Asylum. Check it out below.
