WATCHMAN Star Jackie Earle Haley May Play a Villain in SUICIDE SQUAD
We’ve got a new bit of info for you regarding David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. The news comes from Latino-Review’s El Mayimbe, who has been on fire recently with the Suicide Squad intel. This most recent nugget of info indicates that Watchman star Jackie Earle Haley might be taking on a villainous role in the story as The Thinker. Here’s what the report says:
"Another #HOT #SUICIDESQUAD #RUMOR For the character of THE THINKER I'm hearing Jackie Earle Haley's name being tossed around. Remember him as #RORSCHACH in #THEWATCHMEN? Take with grain of salt until otherwise confirmed but found it interesting nonetheless."
The Thinker is an alias that has been used by many characters in the DC Comics Universe. It’s not clear which one will be represented in the movie, but it would make sense for the character in the film to be based on the orginal incarnation… Clifford DeVoe.
The character is a genius inventor who used his intellect as a weapon by using his "Thinking Cap." DeVoe is a villain of the Flash and was a member of the Injustice Society and the Suicide Squad.
This is the first time that we’ve heard of this character's involvement with the film, and if this news does turn out to by true, Haley is the perfect actor to take him on.
