Suicide Squad David Ayer Scott Eastwood Raymond Olubowale

David Ayer will start shooting SUICIDE SQUAD in the very near future, and it's being reported that FURY star (and Clint Eastwood's son) Scott Eastwood has joined the movie, as well as boxer and PIXELS actor Raymond Olubowale. Eastwood revealed his involvement with the DC film while speaking with eTalk, and Olubowale told The Toronto Son that he has landed a role in a comic book movie called BRAVO 14, which is the working title for the project.

Since the SUICIDE SQUAD casting news broke there has been a bunch of speculation about who Scott Eastwood and Raymond Olubowale will be playing. Latino-Review says they've heard Olubowale is doing motion capture for King Shark (and will have a small role as part of Amanda Waller's security), and the site is also claiming that Eastwood will cameo as Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman's love interest. If true, there's a good chance Eastwood will end up appearing as Trevor in Michelle MacLaren's WONDER WOMAN.

What are your thoughts on the latest casting for David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD?

Holy crap, Scott Eastwood looks like his dad

Other than that, I'm still on the fence for this movie. I like most of the casting, but I'll have to see some previews, or reviews, before I'll decide whether or not to see this.

Still no interest....

You still have a non-actor in one of the 6 leads, along with a bad actor, a girl who's never done an action sequence (let alone an action movie), and Will Smith, who is a complete wildcard having not done a legitimate role where he didn't play Will Smith as a character in years. This movie looks like a trainwreck of epic proportions, although it might be so bad it's worth seeing in a Batman Forever kind of way.

Non-actor? Bad actor? Not that I disagree necessarily, I'm just curious who you were referring to?

As much as I like Ayer I am also pretty dubious on the casting of this movie. Will Smith plays Will Smith. Always. That's it. Even when he tries to "stretch" and play a character it's more like Will Smith playing Will Smith playing a character. I'm firmly convinced that Leto is a terrible choice for the Joker. Before his scenery chewing was rewarded by the academy no one would have called him

Before his scenery chewing was rewarded by the academy no one would have called him even a good actor. Jai Courtney is never happening. He's had plenty of chances and no one is buying it. Margot Robie is nice to look at, but I don't know enough about her to have an opinion one way or the other about her as Harley Quinn. I don't even know who the hell Joel Kinnaman is.

Honestly, the only casting that has gotten me excited and that I'm actually looking forward to is Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. She's a truly great actress, and perfect for the part.

I think given the right material / role, Scott Eastwood could be as big an action star as his dad was back in the day.

King Shark isn't a character I need to in real life

But I think the Eastwood casting is solid. I think dude is going to be a big time star also

I'd expect that they'll heavily alter what King Shark is all about, if that's who he is playing. Which it probably is.

They've announced Killer Croc as well. So it looks like they're going full-on comic book. Personally I think it's a mistake, but I guess we'll see.
