“Suicide Squad” marks the third film in the Warner Bros. Pictures DC Extended Universe initiative and the first one not to be directed by Zack Snyder. Even so, Snyder was involved in ‘Squad’ and managed an executive producer credit on the final film.
Now it has been revealed that though David Ayer helmed ‘Squad,’ there was one last minute additional scene in the film that saw Snyder getting behind the camera and doing the filming for – the cameo by Ezra Miller’s The Flash.
In the film there’s multiple flashback sequences involving the characters and how they were captured. While most are apprehended by a certain Caped Crusader, one of them – Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang – is seen being stopped during a bank robbery by The Flash who appears in full costume.
Ayer confirmed to Collider recently that the scene was shot in London by Snyder during production of “Justice League”: “Flash was always in the movie, we just got lucky because Justice League was happening and they had the uniform, they had the assets, so we were able to get that photography.”
Ayer was in post-production on the film when it was shot. It would also explain how even Jai Courtney, who is in the scene, wasn’t made aware of the appearance until a first screening the other week.
