SUICIDE SQUAD: Will One Of These Actors Play 'Rick Flag'? 'Deathstroke' Contender Rumored

Tom Hardy didn't fancy playing Rick Flag & neither did Jake Gyllenhaal, but Cinemablend reckon David Ayer and Warner Bros. now want one of these two actors for the role. One used to kill Walkers & has worked with Ayer before, and the other recently went bald for Ridley Scott!



Those weren't exactly subtle hints so you've probably figured out that both Jon Bernthal and Joel Edgerton are the next names being lined up to star as Rick Flag in Suicide Squad, according to Cinemablend. Bernthal came to our attention as the doomed Shane Walsh on AMC's The Walking Dead, and also worked with director David Ayer in his WWII drama, Fury. Meanwhile Egerton has starred in a number of great flicks over the years, most recently playing Christian Bale's nemesis in Exodus: Gods And Kings. The site also reckon they've confirmed the Gary Sinise rumor, and the actor has indeed signed on to appear in the film -- but not as General Eiling! They don't say which character he will play, but it won't be Deathstroke either, as they hear former True Blood wolfman Joe Manganiello is "in contention" for that role.

So quite a bit of news here, but of course until any of it is official it's all up in the air. How would you feel about Edgerton or Bernthal playing Flag? Would Manganiello make for a good Slade Wilson? Sound off in the usual place.
