AU.IBTIMES.COM – A plot twist involving the identity of the main villain in “Suicide Squad” has just been revealed, if the recent reports are to be confirmed. Amanda Waller could be out as the film’s main antagonist since another character named Antiphon is said to be taking over. However, the latter’s name is believed to just be an alias given to Rick Flagg Sr.

Umberto Gonzalez, described by Screenrant as a “notorious scooper,” recently took to his Twitter page to share a photo of the main villain in the film. Described as a burn victim with a prosthetic leg, Antiphon is said to be the “head bad guy” in “Suicide Squad” who “leads a badass terrorist cell called #ONSLAUGHT.” Gonzales described the group as a special ops team that’s comprised of mercenaries who will be “up against #DEADSHOT & the rest of the Suicide Squad.” Onslaught reportedly has their own agenda why they are hunting superheroes and villains. Interestingly, Gonzales also mentioned actor Ed Harris was rumoured for the role of Antiphon.

According to Screenrant, Gonzalez’s version of the burn Antiphon differs from the slick villain featured in Keith Giffen’s comics. Likewise, his mention of Ed Harris supposedly being a contender for the role leads to speculations the main antagonist Antiphon may after all be Rick Flagg Sr.

Ed Harris was previously rumoured to star as Rick Flagg in “Suicide Squad.” However, that role has since been given to “Run All Night” star Joel Kinnaman. But not long after Kinnaman’s involvement in “Suicide Squad” was confirmed, Harris’ name was once again attached to the film although this time for the role of Rick Flagg Sr. However, the actor denied his involvement in the movie when asked by Screenrant during an interview, saying he doesn’t “know anything about that.” But he soon followed up his statement with a confirmation that Kinnaman had approached him to talk about a particular role in the film although he couldn’t be certain if it was for Rick Flagg Sr. “Joel mentioned that there was something he wanted me to look at, or think about doing, but I don’t know if that was it or not,” he said.
