The site reports that Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who played dual roles in Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World," is switching comics allegiances and will portray reptilian Batman baddie Killer Croc (alias: Waylon Jones) in the DC comics supervillain team-up flick. The actor and studio Warner Bros. declined to comment on TheWrap's report.
If true, Akinnuoye-Agbaje's casting would be yet another big get for the ensemble, which is already stacked with stars. The "Lost" and "Oz" alum would re-team with his "Concussion" co-star Will Smith, who plays Deadshot.
The rest of the "Squad" cast includes Jared Leto (The Joker), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), and Jay Hernandez (El Diablo). TheWrap reports that Jesse Eisenberg is also expected to reprise his Lex Luthor role from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," and Scott Eastwood is rumored to appear as a love interest for Wonder Woman in the flick.
"Suicide Squad," directed by David Ayer ("Fury"), is due in theaters on August 5, 2016.
