Hot on the heels of rumors involving Jared Leto being sought to play The Joker, new rumors are popping up for potential Suicide Squad casting.
Jon Bernthal may have inadvertently created a little bit of a buzz about his possible involvement with DC’s Suicide Squad.
ComicBook.Com reports that during an appearance at Wizard World Comic Con in Tulsa, Bernthal said that he would like to work with David Ayers again, having recently worked with him on Fury. This likely prompted a question regarding Ayers upcoming project, Suicide Squad.
Bernthal said he wasn’t able to offer any comments on the project, and that may have been taken out of context as an indication that he is involved. Some in the audience members likely took that comment to heart as some social media buzz began as a result.
People can speculate all they want, but there has been no confirmation that Bernthal is either up for a role in Suicide Squad or that he is even being sought after to be part of the project. Of course, most sources that may be privy to such information will remain tight-lipped until firm agreements have been made with all parties involved.
