A team up of Lex Luthor and The Joker is what DC fans is looking forward in the upcoming DC movie “Suicide Squad.” But Jesse Eisenberg has not confirmed his appearance in the “Suicide Squad.”
Eisenberg will play the villainous Lex Luthor in “Superman vs Batman: Dawn of Justice” and will antagonize The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. According to Movie Pilot, there have been some hints that Lex will have a cameo in the movie.
“Suicide Squad” producer Charles Roven earlier hinted that Joker would not be acting alone in the movie, but will be using a group of associates to assist him in whatever wicked activities he is up to.
“He’s more social… a very successful and smart businessman besides being a sociopath,” said Roven.
This further fueled speculation that Joker, which will be played by Jared Leto, will be having an accomplice and it may probably be Lex. If even Eisenberg will appear in “Suicide Squad,” he will cause problem – not only to Batman and Superman – but to the other villain-hero of DC.
Movie Pilot theorized that if Lex Luthor really is obsessed with Meta-humans, it is possible that he will join forces with The Joker.
“Suicide Squad” focuses on number of deranged criminals, which Amanda Waller assembles to save the world.
Aside from Leto, the movie also stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Cara Delvingne, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Adam Beach, Jay Hernandez, and Karen Fukahara. It will be directed and written by “Fury” director David Ayer.
The British Board of Film Classification has recently approved and classified “Suicide Squad” trailer as rated 15 in the UK.
Meanwhile, the first official trailer of “Suicide Squad” is expected to be coming before the year ends.
“Suicide Squad” opens in US theaters on August 5, 2016.
