Deadline reports that Warner Bros. is talking with Jesse Eisenberg about reprising the role of Superman villain Lex Luthor in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. Jesse will introduce audiences to his take on Lex in 2016 with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Squad is about a group of rag-tag DC villains forced on suicide missions and will be the next DCU movie put into production. It's possible that Lex's role in the DCU will continue throughout the massive amount releases.
We've already heard that Will Smith, Tom Hardy and Margot Robbie are circling roles in the film. Usually, when it comes to DC casting we hear a very few names linked for roles. It's likely these will be our leads of the film. I'm under the assumption that Smith could be playing Deadshot, Hardy is wanted for Harkness and whatever the female lead ends-up is where Robbie fits in. Be that Harley Quinn or whatever female villain role they eventually announce she's playing. It will be coming to theatres only a few months after Batman v Superman in August 2016.
