Ike Barinholtz Says Suicide Squad Role Is Probably Not Who You Think It Is



Much has been said about David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad film from various cast members, however one cast member has still been shrouded in mystery - Ike Barinholtz. While fans can hold out hope that we might get more hints next month when the new Suicide Squad trailer drops during the DC Films: Dawn of the Justice League special on the CW, for right now Barinholtz is keeping his mouth shut.

“I have David Ayer in my head being like, ‘I’m going to kill you if you say anything,’” she told BuzzFeed. “I can say it’s probably not who you think it is. I can say that he’s definitely someone that people will not like, and he is someone who likes to really mess with people — likes to really hurt people and F them up.”

The movie is an interesting one for the actor who is primarily known for his comedy roles and you can tell he very much enjoyed the ride.

“Going to Suicide Squad was a very different experience,” he mentioned. “I don’t want to say it was agro-male because Margot Robbie is tougher than any of the guys, but it was just a very raucous set. David Ayer is very dark. He chases that real darkness and says crazy things to you before a take to get your head spinning. He likes to psychologically get in there. He would tell us, ‘You know on Fury, right before a scene, I almost got Shia [LaBeouf] and [Jon] Bernthal into a fistfight.’ And [I’m] like, ‘I don’t want to do that!!’ But he gets great performances out of actors and [Suicide Squad] is so big in scope. When I think of some of those sets, it’s like, This is the size of Universal Studios. It was very, very, very different.”

So what do you think ComicBook.com readers, are you excited to see what he brings to the role? Let us know in the comments below!

    Maybe he's Robin. I mean, we're speculating that everyone else is, so why not him too?

    We wouldn't expect it if he were Kylo Ren!
