The DC Cinematic Universe is really beginning to come along nicely now and there are plans for a huge amount of movies to hit the big screen in the coming years, including the eagerly anticipated movie Suicide Squad, which has been making great progress of late. It did seem that the Suicide Squad movie had its full cast confirmed but now there seems to be a bit of a change about to take place.
We were all very excited to learn that British actor Tom Hardy had been cast in the role of Rick Flag for the Suicide Squad movie but it now looks like that could all be set to change, with rumours that Tom has decided to pull out of the project. It is now being claimed that Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal is in line to replace Tom Hardy in the role, which has been met with mixed response from the fans.
One excited fan gushed, "As much as I do love Tom Hardy, I have to admit that Jake Gyllenhaal is the perfect replacement, as the pictures from his new movie Southpaw prove. HOT!!!" Meanwhile though, a more disgruntled fan added, "Gutted to hear Tom Hardy is quitting as Rick Flag for Suicide Squad and even more gutted to hear the rumours that Jake Gyllenhaal is replacing him. The guy sucks."
As for the rest of the cast of the Suicide Squad movie, we will see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Jared Leto as The Joker. Suicide Squad is being directed by David Ayer and is scheduled to hit the big screen on August 5, 2016 in both the US and the UK.
Do you think Jake Gyllenhaal is a good replacement for Tom Hardy as Rick Flag in Suicide Squad?
