We already know that Warner’s Suicide Squad may feature some big name villains. Lex Luthor, The Joker, and Harley Quinn have all been mentioned as appearing in the movie, but what about some more familiar members of the group? A new rumor is out naming actors for three key villain roles.
Variety is reporting that Jai Courtney is wanted for Deadshot, Tom Hardy for Rick Flag, and Will Smith for The Flash’s villain Captain Boomerang.
Two of those are believable, but Captain Boomerang is the sort of D-list villain you’d expect to see show up in an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. I think most fans were hoping that Smith would play Aquaman’s villain Black Manta, as he’s been a member of Suicide Squad for a while and is a much cooler character than Captain Boomerang.
Then again Variety could be mistaken and have the roles reversed, as Jai Courtney would make a decent Captain Boomerang due to his accent.
Captain Boomerang? Really?
