It’s damn near a sure thing.
Last week, Suicide Squad director, David Ayer, tweeted out a photo (below), showing the Suicide Squad gathered together. The photo showed actors whose roles hadn’t been disclosed yet; Jim Parrack, Adam Beach, Ike, Barinholtz. Latino Review reported that Parrack will be a younger Deathstroke, Beach will be playing Ravan and Barinholtz will portray Dr Hugo Strange. These are still rumors.
However, actor Jim Parrack may have given some insight to his role in the film. He recently posted this to his Instagram account:
It was captioned by “#inspired by. Can’t believe it’s two years already since @daftpunk dropped that last one #shoutoutMaskShit #herewego #letsgetit”.
There’s been no confirmation from Warner Bros., Ayer, or Parrack on who the actor will be playing, but at this point it seems like all but a done deal that Parrack will be playing Deathstroke. I wonder if this give credence to the rumors about Beach’s and Barinholtz’s roles?
Look for Suicide Squad in a theater near you on August 5, 2016.
