Latino Review’s El Mayimbe is at it again, breaking some interesting news tonight via his Instagram account. According to the tipster, Joe Manganiello will not be playing the role of Deathstroke in Suicide Squad and instead, his True Blood co-star Jim Parrack will be stepping in, as the studio wanted someone younger. Furthermore, apparently the film has gained two additional cast members, as Ike Barinholtz will be taking on Dr. Hugo Strange while Adam Beach will be playing Ravan.
While no official confirmation has been given by the studio, you can clearly see the three aforementioned actors in the recent cast photo that director David Ayer posted earlier tonight. Take a look below and note how Barinholtz, Beach and Parrack are on the right side, standing up beside one another.
Suicide Squad is scheduled to open in theatres on August 5th, 2016, and from the looks of it, it’s going to have an absolutely stacked cast. Until we get final confirmation on these casting changes though, let us know in the comments section who you would rather see play Deathstroke: Manganiello, or Parrack?
