Despite already having a large number of characters to fit into one movie already, Suicide Squad is going to have its fair share of cameos and possible appearances from other DCEU characters throughout it as well, including the already-confirmed Batman (Ben Affleck) and a rumored cameo from Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, though the latter has yet to be confirmed for the film.
However, thanks to a new cast list from the film, it looks like Batman won’t be the only Justice League member appearing in Suicide Squad, as one of Bruce Wayne’s soon-to-be teammates has also been confirmed for the upcoming film as well. Spoiler alert – it may not be who you’re expecting either.
The cast list, which features all of the actors and their characters in order of appearance in the film, not only reveals the order in which we’ll be introduced to each of the members of Task Force X, but also possibly confirms some previous theories that Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang will end up in Belle Reve thanks to none other than Ezra Miller’s Flash (via Comicbook.com):
Due to shots in some of the trailers featuring Boomerang surrounded by lightning, some fans had thought that he would be taken down by The Flash in a quick introductory scene, and judging by their quick back-to-back appearances, it certainly seems more likely at the very least.
Interestingly enough as well, it looks like the film will be starting with Will Smith’s Deadshot which could make him the center emotional thread of the film, depending on what point in his arc we meet him at. Katana doesn’t look like she’ll be showing up until much later in the film also, though neither does Rick Flag it seems, so it’s possible their introductions could be happening at the same time.
We’ve known for awhile now that Suicide Squad is going to have a very unique storytelling structure though, and the mix of present-day scenes and flashbacks should make for an interesting rhythm for the film, especially when it comes to character introductions. At the very least, it looks like we might actually get to see some more of Ezra Miller’s Flash in action before 2017 though, and hopefully this time, it won’t be through the bad grain of a convenience store security camera while Wonder Woman watches on her laptop from a hotel room. Hopefully.
Suicide Squad is set to hit theatres on August 5th.
