Scott Eastwood’s Mystery ‘Suicide Squad’ Role Revealed?
With a little less than two months until its release, Suicide Squad has got fans around the world buzzing with excitement. From the debut of Harley Quinn and Deadshot, to Jared Leto’s Joker, we’ve got a lot to look forward to when the “Skwad” hit theaters in August.
