The DC news keeps rolling in today. Following the Wonder Woman news this morning, it’s sounding like a familiar arch-villain may be joining the ranks of the Suicide Squad in their upcoming big screen mayhem.
Deadline reports that Jesse Eisenberg is being pursued to join the group as Lex Luthor. As the Suicide Squad is a relatively fluid lineup, adding or removing a villain here and there isn’t bizarre, but Lex would definitely be a big addition to the group.
Suicide Squad is being directed by David Ayer, whose Fury is in theaters now and is apparently pretty awesome. The movie will be out in 2016.
