Suicide Squad is still without its leader, Variety reports. Jake Gyllenhaal passed on the Rick Flag role, à la Tom Hardy, so Maggie could test for it so he could perpetuate his comic-book-role-less résumé. Truthfully, Gyllenhaal has his hands full with at least three other films debuting this year. The Squad still has Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, and Cara Delevingne onboard. David Ayer will begin filming the Warner Bros. movie in April, to meet an August 5, 2016, premiere — so fingers crossed we get a Flag soon, because we don't want to wait more than two whole summers.
