Jake Gyllenhaal Eyed to Replace Tom Hardy in David Ayer’s ‘Suicide Squad’

The Wrap

Jake Gyllenhaal may not have received an Oscar nomination for “Nightcrawler” on Thursday but he could still end the day with a win, as David Ayer is courting his “End of Watch” star to replace Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg in “Suicide Squad,” multiple individuals familiar with the comic book project have told TheWrap.

I'd be down with that. After all, Tom Hardy (muzzle aside) already got his chance in a DC movie. And Jake's more than capable of playing an anti-hero. He's earned it in Nightcrawler and I'm thinking a Rick Flag Tom Hardy would conflict with his Mad Max stardom to come.

Shouldve replaced Will Smith with Jake Gyllenhall. He'd make a much better Deadshot.
