SPOILERS: New pics of Common on the set of Suicide Squad – and who we think he is

June 11th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Well, more pics are leaking from the set of the Suicide Squad movie and this time it’s of actor Common (above and below – scroll down).

Covered in Tattoos, there’s some fan debate on who exactly he is (and, it seems backlash because another villain has tattoos – em, ok) with rumours being everything from Bronze Tiger to – really? – John Stewart.

We reckon he’s villain Tattooed Man (see him below from the comics), a villain who can make his tats come to life… we love that there might be a character with a super power THAT crazy in this movie! Oh, and he’s a Green Lantern villain, so that sets up that movie too.

If we’re right.

Are we though? Let us know your thoughts.

According to the DC Wiki: “Tattooed Man is a super-villain who can manipulate living tattoos on his body and usually an enemy of Green Lantern. There are several individuals that had used the alias. The first was Abel Tarrant, who was a former sailor who turned to burglary. The second was John Oakes, a former cellmate of Tarrant and earned his abilities from the latter through supernatural means. Mark Richards is the current Tattooed Man”

Suicide Squad stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jared Leto as The Joker, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. It arrives in theatres 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….
