While the most popular fan theory for a very long time has been that Scott Eastwood's character would some how turn out to be Dick Grayson aka Nightwing, while others believe he'll be playing a young Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke in the upcoming Suicide Squad film. My money has been on Deathstroke for awhile, and I just figured Barinholtz could be playing just some random character, much like lesser known actors have played before in previous Batman and DC Films.
Now it appears those theories could be put to rest and DC Fanboys and Fangirls may be a little disappointed. Earlier today DCMovies appears to have found the answer on who they are actually playing. DCMovies discovered a German film site, that had the cast list posted with the actors beside their character names with Eastwood playing an unknown character known as "GQ" Edwards and Barinholtz playing a semi familiar character to hardcore comic book fans named Captain Griggs who has a history with Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor.
While all this could turn out to another cool rumor, we only have a little over three more weeks until the release of the highly anticipated film. For now sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on the rumor and the film, and as always thanks for stopping by EastCoastMovieGuys.com!
The film also stars Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jared Leto, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Ben Affleck, Cara Delevingne and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 5th.
