‘Suicide Squad’ Update: Scott Eastwood Might play Deathstroke

Suicide Squad” is loaded with the biggest supervillains of all time. So much so that it even forced Batman to do a cameo in the movie. One of the characters that both the studio and director David Ayer are keeping as a closely guarded secret is Scott Eastwood’s character. Ever since the actor was announced to be a part of the movie, fans have been wanting to know what character he might play in the ensemble. Read on for more details.

According to Cinema Blend, Ayer teased a photo hinting at a new member being added to the Suicide Squad and that member could very well be Deathstroke. The character is one of the most dangerous mercenary of the DC Cinematic Universe. It was earlier reported that Scott Eastwood would be playing the role of a soldier in the movie,

It was earlier reported that Scott Eastwood would be playing the role of a soldier in the movie, however, nothing else was revealed about his character. It comes as a coincidence that Deathstroke whose real name was Slade Joseph Wilson also happened to be a soldier. It was right before he volunteered for a secret government project giving him abilities a normal human would never have. A photo of Scott Eastwood dressed as a soldier also surface online and there are chances that he might very well be playing the role of Deathstroke.

It is being speculated that Scott would be playing the role of a soldier for most parts of the film as plain old Slade Wilson before donning the deadly mercenary’s mask. Deathstroke in the comic world is known to have enhanced abilities such as brain usage of almost 90% which helps him in seeing things and reacting to them quicker. He has perfected most fighting forms and is known to have killed quite a few important characters in the DC universe.

Slade was also known to have a son who he could not save. It was perhaps the trauma of watching his son die turned him into the cold and deadly mercenary that he is known as today. With Deathstroke’s addition to the team that already has Deadshot, Rick Flagg, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang and Harley Quinn amongst others it would be interesting to see them do some serious damage under the watch of Amanda Waller.
