There are minor spoilers ahead for the Suicide Squad movie. You’ve been warned!
It’s no secret that Batman will be making an appearance in Suicide Squad when it hits theaters next week. But what if Gotham’s Dark Knight isn’t the only member of the Justice League to make an appearance?
Fandom has posted a media press kit for Suicide Squad which lists its cast in order of appearance. And 20 names down the list is none other than Ezra Miller as the Flash! But what’s the Flash doing in this movie? We don’t know for sure, but considering that Jai Courtney’s Boomerang appears just before Miller’s Flash in the credits, it suggests that the speculation about Flash fighting Boomerang from the trailers was correct. They are archenemies in the comics, so it only makes sense that they would appear together. Another possibility is an extension of Miller’s cameo from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which the Flash attempted to get a message to Batman in the past. However, Ben Affleck’s name was curiously left out of the cast listing.
The cast list seemingly confirms a long-running rumor that Jim Parrack will appear as Jonny Frost, one of the Joker’s henchmen from the Joker graphic novel. Fandom also pointed out that Shailyn Pierre-Dixon is playing Deadshot’s daughter, Zoe, while David Harbour will appear as Dexter Tolliver, who is presumably an updated version of Derek Tolliver, one of Amanda Waller’s enemies in the DC Universe. Nobody quite has any idea of what to make of James McGowan as “Panda Man.” All we can say is that there is no Panda Man in the DCU!
Suicide Squad will be released on Friday, August 5.
