We thought Common was up to play Black Manta in Suicide Squad, but turns out it may be someone different given his look in recent BTS photos:
So who could his character be. Well, technically he could be damn near anyone. If the tattoos are anything to go by, he may be The Tattooed Man, who usually makes his bad guy routine in the Green Lantern franchise. But seeing in Suicide Squad, everyone seems to have some obnoxious tattoos from the Joker to Harley to Diablo, Common’s character may be Bronze Tiger.
Bronze Tiger is a skilled martial artist with a really bad temper, whilst The Tattooed Man’s powers allow him to bring his tattoos to life and be used as a mean of attack. Only time will tell who is who.
David Ayer is directing Suicide Squad which is set to star Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Jared Leto as The Joker.
Jesse Eisenberg is also expected to reprise his upcoming role as Lex Luthor, while Scott Eastwood is set to appear in a small role that is rumoured to be Wonder Woman’s love interest.
Suicide Squad will land in cinemas August 5th 2016
