Marvel has had its first defector, as Lost actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who played a character in Thor: The Dark World, has been cast as Killer Croc in Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad.
All that’s known so far is that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has been cast as Killer Croc in Suicide Squad, which is being directed by David Ayer, and already has a massively talented cast including Jared leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, and more.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s Jesse Eisenberg will also be in Suicide Squad, and we recently got our first look of him as the incredibly bald, and highly intelligent Lex Luthor. Fans seemed mixed on how he looked, but we have a good feeling about the fact that he’s such a cerebral actor.
Killer Croc’s actual name is Waylon Jones, and the villain is one of Batman’s many rogue gallery supervillains. He obviously has a reptilian appearance and first appeared in Batman’s comic back in 1983. He looks like a killer croc for sure.
We’re excited see more casting announcements for Suicide Squad, but it’s surprising since Jared Leto has been getting ready to start filming by dying his hair blonde, and using his Joker voice at a concert to shut a heckler up.
Shooting will begin on the film in Canada in April, and we look forward to hearing more about this massively talented cast of super villains. Suicide Squad will be released on August 5, 2016. Let us know what you think of the Lost actor joining Suicide Squad.
