Killer Croc Actor Talks “Squad” Role

One of the least talked about, but most well known characters in the upcoming “Suicide Squad” film is Batman villain Killer Croc. Having appeared in both the animated series and the ‘Arkham’ video game series, the David Ayer-directed film will be the character’s first big screen outing.

Now, actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has spoken with Coming Soon about his take on the villain which he says is a fully-formed character at the film’s start and one who has fought against Ben Affleck’s Batman before:

“At the time you meet him in this film, he’s a fully fledged criminal. He’s really one of the baddest criminals known to be roaming in Gotham, hence his lockup in Arkham. He’s tangled with the Batman and here he is amongst these other foes. He’s very much a formidable force at the time that you meet him.”

This would seem to lend weight to rumors that the film will offer flashbacks to the way in which these various characters came to be imprisoned, with Affleck’s Batman responsible for at least two (Harley Quinn, Killer Croc). The movie itself opens in August.
