The “Lost” actor is switching sides from Marvel to DC and reuniting with his “Concussion” co-star Will Smith
After playing dual roles in “Thor: The Dark World,” Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is switching sides and moving from Marvel to DC, as he’s set to play Killer Croc in WB’s “Suicide Squad,” TheWrap has learned.
Representatives for Warner Bros. and Akinnuoye-Agbaje did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Proving that crime might in fact pay, Suicide Squad director David Ayer has give us the first look at the film’s ragtag band of supervillains, via a cast photo taken during the first script read-through, posted earlier today on Twitter. Pictured here, out of costume of course: Will Smith (who plays Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), among others.
Not seen here of course is Jared Leto, who has been cast as The Joker.

Realistically the only thing anyone involved in that horrendous ball of shite is to be lined up against a wall and shot. It is somehow worse than Ashton Kutcher-era Two & a Half Men.
