Note: Final warning that this post contains a Suicide Squad spoiler.
As you've probably heard by now, David Ayer's Suicide Squad has begun screening for critics, which means - embargo or not - we're entering that pre-release period where Suicide Squad spoilers are going to start leaking out onto the internet.
One such spoiler arrived this morning, via the folks at The Hollywood Reporter. Here's what they're saying:
Due to a last-minute bout of filming, The Flash will be making an appearance in Suicide Squad, Warner Bros.’ heavily-hyped DC superhero movie that opens in one week, according to several sources.
Ezra Miller, who plays the hero, recently wrapped shooting a scene that will be inserted into the movie, which bows Aug. 5. It is unclear whether the scene was shot in April, when the movie underwent over a week of reshoots, or more recently.
A few things worth noting here: the scene featuring The Flash must've been shot a while ago (we think it was probably filmed on the Justice League set, where Ezra Miller would've already been on-hand and in costume as The Flash), because his scene was in the film as of several weeks ago.
Furthermore, it's worth noting that The Flash's appearance in Suicide Squad is very, very brief, more of a glorified cameo than anything else. In other words: don't expect Barry Allen to do much interacting with the rest of the Suicide Squad cast.
Please feel free to speculate on what The Flash might be doing in Suicide Squad in the comments below.
