Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad” still looks to be one member short.
Following Tom Hardy’s departure from the role of Rick Flag, sources now tell Variety that Jake Gyllenhaal has passed on an offer to play the leader of the superhero team.
Jake has lobbied hard for superhero roles before. He lost out the role of Batman to Bale in Batman begins. I doubt he'd take what I assume is a one-shot role like this anyways. The guy is aiming high. Which is good, he's a proven to be a great actor.
