Prior to the release of Suicide Squad there was a lot of speculation about Scott Eastwood’s character. Some thought he was Dick Grayson, but the character just ended up being a rather nameless soldier. Well before Scott Eastwood was cast in the role, Shia LeBeouf was a possibility:

““The character was different initially,” LaBeouf says. “Then Will [Smith] came in, and the script changed a bit. That character and Tom [Hardy’s] character [later played by Joel Kinnaman] got written down to build Will up.”

“I don’t think Warner Bros. wanted me. I went in to meet, and they were like, ‘Nah, you’re crazy. You’re a good actor, but not this one.’ It was a big investment for them.””

Actually, I think the exact quote from Warner Bros. was “no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no.
