The moment Tom Hardy left the Suicide Squad movie Jake Gyllenhaal’s name was attached and, in all honesty, we were happy with him taking over the role of Rick Flagg because he’s a cracking actor too.

However… Variety are reporting that they’ve been told  that “Jake Gyllenhaal has passed on an offer to play the leader of the superhero team”.

They add that Warner Bros did not comment.

We were hoping this was a done deal, but have faith in WB…

They still have until April to fill the role and the film opens on August 5th, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
