Squad Gets Meraz, Affleck, Buff Leto

Alex Meraz (“Twilight”) has scored a mystery role in David Ayer’s upcoming DC Comics adaptation “Suicide Squad” at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Meraz joins a cast that includes Will Smith, Jared Leto, Viola Davis, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Common, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Karen Fukuhara and Raymond Olubowale.

The casting comes as new photos from the film’s set have gone online showcasing Ben Affleck decked out in attire and hair similar to that he sported on the set of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”. This would seem to indicate that Bruce Wayne will make an appearance in the film, though the studio has yet to confirm.

Finally, Jared Leto has posted an Instagram photo of himself in a Superboy shirt showing off his physique in the film. It looks like he’ll certainly be the buffest The Joker to date.
