Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis and possibly Joel Kinnaman are already in place at the top of the cast, which leaves David Ayer's Suicide Squad to start building up its supporting players. Next on that list is Jay Hernandez, who according to The Wrap's sources is in talks to jump aboard.

Hostel and Friday Night Lights star Hernandez's potential role hasn't been specified yet, but there are rumblings that he'd be an inmate on the same Arkham cell block as Leto's Joker.

The film finds a group of DC Comics villains and anti-heroes including the aformentioned Joker, Deadshot (Smith), Boomerang (Courtney), Harley Quinn (Robbie) and Enchantress (Delevingne) rounded up to go on hazardous missions for the US government. Davis is playing shady government agent Amanda Waller. It's set to be Warners’ follow-up to next March's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, with an August 5, 2016 release date already on the books.

There has been chatter about Jesse Eisenberg showing up to reprise his Lex Luthor portrayal from Dawn Of Justice and even talk of a cameo by Ben Affleck’s Batman, though all that remains speculation for now. Ayer is in pre-production on the film as we speak, working from his own script.
