SPOILERS: Has Scott Eastwood’s role in Suicide Squad been discovered?

June 23rd, 2015 by Marc Comments



Scott Eastwood’s role in the Suicide Squad movie has been a big mystery so far, but now it looks like Umberto Gonzalez over at Heroic Hollywood has got the low down.

Needless to say, if this is right then SPOILERS!

The site is reporting that there is much effort to keep his identity secret by covering the name on his uniform but he writes: “One of my guys saw the name on Eastwood’s chest they’re fiercely protecting. My source made out the last name: WILSON. Then he made out the first name which is just a letter. S.”

So, if this is the real deal, Eastwood is Slade Wilson… Deathstroke.

Saying as we know he’s a soldier and they are going to great lengths to keep it secret, we’d say there’s probably some truth to this.

We know Eastwood is on for a few movies with DC/Warners, so it would have to be a good character, right?

Oh also he says that Common is in fact Abel Tarrant aka Tattooed Man as we reported a few weeks back.

So, Scott Eastwood for Deathstroke? Let us know your thoughts…


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….
