Shooting for “Suicide Squad” is currently underway, but it certainly does not prevent director David Ayer from adding new casts to the movie.

Rapper-turned-actor Common was confirmed to be joining the cast for an undisclosed role last Thursday, and now, Variety has reported that Alex Meraz has signed on too. However, fans are still kept in the dark regarding the character that Meraz will take on.

David Harbour was spotted near the film set too, but there was no official announcement regarding his participation in the movie.


Viewers will recognise Meraz as Paul Lahote in “The Twilight Saga” while Harbour is a veteran actor who has starred in a handful of movies such as “Quantum of Solace”, “Brokeback Mountain”, and “War of the Worlds”.

If the report is true, then it won’t be the first time Harbour has acted in a comic book adaptation. He previously took up the role of District Attorney Frank Scanlon in the 2011 version of “Green Hornet”.

Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, and Jay Hernandez are all confirmed to star in the movie. It will be produced by Richard Suckle, Charles Roven, and Colin Wilson, with the script written by Ayer.

Principal photography kicked off on 13th April, with casts and crew currently filming in Toronto, Canada.

The film is slated for release on 5th August 2016.
