"Suicide Squad" plot speculation and cast rumours continue to run wild. The latest one hints at recreating an iconic scene from the comic "The Killing Joke". Apart from this, there are also reports that Jim Parrack may play The Joker's henchman Jonny Frost in the film.
The plot teaser comes from a tweet from Jared Leto. He has posted an image, which appears to be his own shadow and is reminiscent of The Joker in the "Batman: The Killing Joke" 1988 graphic novel.
This has sparked speculations that "Suicide Squad" may recreate that brutal scene from the comic where the sadist Joker assaults Barbara 'Batgirl' Gordon, strips her naked, clicks pictures of her as she is bleeding and makes her father (Commissioner Gordon) watch her die.
If you recall, a few months ago, an image of Leto's Joker holding a camera surfaced online and that sparked rumours of plot similarities between the Joker's story in the comic and in "Suicide Squad"/ "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".
Movie Pilot has pointed out that the striking resemblance in the attire of the two Jokers, strongly suggest that Leto is indeed teasing that the horrifying scene will be included in DC's "Suicide Squad". According to the website, the hat that Leto is seen wearing in the photo is similar to the one that is synonymous to the "The Killing Joke's" Joker.
Meanwhile, Batman-news has reported that Jim Parrack will be playing one of The Joker's henchman Jonny Frost. Actress Corina Calderon confirmed this through an Instagram post (which she deleted immediately), which read: 'All #HappyCamper on my way to set again, going earlier than my #CallTime just to be there and watch my boy Jim Parrack playing #JonnyFrost do his Thang #SuicideSquad'.
The report also said that Parrack can be seen briefly in the "Suicide Squad" trailer leading Jared Leto's Joker down a hallway.
"Suicide Squad" is scheduled to release in 6, August, 2016 and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be released on 25, March, 2016.
