Jon Bernthal Up For Role In Suicide Squad Movie?



Jon Bernthal, known for playing Shane in The Walking Dead, recently attended a Wizard World convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma where the actor was questioned about having a potential role in the Suicide Squad movie.

Jon Bernthal recently starred in Fury, which was directed by David Ayer who is directing Suicide Squad.

According to Renegade Cinema, a fan remarked to Bernthal that directors like to use their favorite actors over again on other movies and questioned Jon Bernthal about Suicide Squad.

Bernthal's response was rather interesting:  "I can’t talk about that right now."

It was then noted that Bernthal realized how he answered and tried to cover his tracks by stating he loved working with Ayer and would like to do so in the future.

It's further noted that Jon Bernthal never denied having a role in the Suicide Squad movie, and it's also said Bernthal never mentioned it again.

Also rumored for Suicide Squad is Jared Leto as The Joker and Cara Delevingne as Harley Quinn, and it's said Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Will Smith are wanted for roles.

The Suicide Squad movie has a 2016 release date.
