Warner Bros. and producer Richard Suckle are toying with fans who are trying to guess who Scott Eastwood is playing in Suicide Squad. Is he playing Dick Grayson, Deathstroke or an original character in Suicide Squad? There are conflicting stories regarding the matter.
On the one hand, Collider is reporting that he will be playing a character named GQ. “Scott Eastwood plays a Navy SEAL that’s part of the main mission alongside the Suicide Squad, not a comics character.” Basically, this means that he is just a nobody.
On the other hand, Comicbook.com has interviewed Richard Suckle who insists that “he’s a very important part of the film” and that his character was in-and-out of the final screenplay. “He’s a very important part of the film and works directly alongside Colonel Flag in the mission. That’s kind of really the best way to describe it. David [Ayer] and Scott worked [together] before. Scott was in Fury. He was sort of a last-minute piece of casting by a bunch of different actors for these roles. His character was sort of existing, then it wasn’t going to exist in the movie, and David wanted to bring him back. It kind of went through a back and forth and Scott just kind of naturally found a place and he had had a pre-existing working relationship [with Ayer]. ”

Suckle has also been paying close attention to theories on the net. Apparently, nobody has been able to guess correctly yet. “No one has guessed right. I’ve seen some of the guesses [online] and no one has guessed right.”
Suicide Squad has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
