Jai Courtney prepping for his role as Captain Boomerang in ‘Suicide Squad’

David Ayer has posted a photo on his twitter account of Jai Courtney prepping for his role as Captain Boomerang in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

Courtney has taken a lot of stick lately with myriad complaints circulating on the internet that he lacks on-screen charisma in many of his movie roles (with someone even going as far as saying that “he has less on-screen charisma than a limp noodle). It doesn’t help that he had a starring role in, not only the worst of the Die Hard films, but one of the worst action movies in recent years.

Here’s hoping he can deliver the goods (and hey, at least he will be able to pull off the accent!).

Check out the pick that Ayer tweeted below:

Do we have any sceptics in the house?

Derek Robertson has dabbled in many aspects of the media industry from a young age. He has always had an admiration for, film, science fiction and all things geek-like. Working in the music industry with Sony/BMG Records gave Derek insight and experience into video directing. Thusly, for many years he took a hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach in creating and editing treatments; working with performance artists, writing and producing music and working both; in front of, and behind the camera. Studying a Msc in Forensic Psychology has embedded a conceptual ethos that has spawned his signature writing style that he now infuses whilst blogging for numerous websites; writing music reviews, movie news, and reviewing network shows et al., . Derek continues to try and erase the boundaries between the homogenous and the insanely dull, culturally enmeshing contemporary socio-political aspects into the mix of the monolithic media industry.
