There is much to look forward to with director David Ayer behind the wheel of DC’s upcoming “Suicide Squad” . Promising to be “a Dirty Dozen with supervillains” according to the helmer, all is set to be revealed soon but we are still waiting for the cast to be announced. We expect Ayer to bring another edgy production to the table, so hopefully the comic book adaptation will attract the right talent for the job. The Hollywood rumor machine spat out a couple of names from the DC Universe to expect as the unlikely heroes. Blockbuster the strongman, Multiplex the human replicator, Jaculi the speedster, Harkness a.k.a. Captain Boomerang, Vixen who has animal abilities and Deadshot the lethal assassin has been mentioned so far. Click HERE to check out descriptions for the characters.
