If you've been following all the news regarding SUICIDE SQUAD, you may have also heard recent rumors surrounding AN APPARENT FLASH CAMEO in the film. In short, based on a few key shots from the recently-released Comic-Con footage for SUICIDE SQUAD, some fans were speculating that the Flash was the mysterious lightning-ridden force that takes down down Captain Boomerang.
This would make sense, given that Boomerang is a part of the Flash's rogues gallery, but as convincing as these shots seemed, there was nothing definitive. It also didn't help much that whatever the main antagonistic force in the film was, it had the look of a giant pillar of electricity. As such, it was impossible to actually discern the Flash's appearance in the flick.
However, based on an apparent official cast list from Fandom, it sounds like an appearance from the cast isn't as crazy as it sounds.
Check out the cast list below, and about halfway down, you'll be able to see the Flash on the list.
.What do you think? Is this official enough to declare Flash in the film? If so, how do you expect he'll make his grand appearance? Given that this cast is "in order of appearance," and that he shows up immediately after Boomerang, it seems fair to conclude that we'll be seeing the Flash take down Boomerang and ultimately be the one responsible for sending him to Belle Reve.
