David Ayer’s Suicide Squad film seems to be the talk of the town lately. From the massive amounts of story related rumors, casting announcements, and even the recent departure of Tom Hardy have caused headline after headline for the film.
The following rumored plot points have made their way online through various sources, with no one site claiming exclusivity to any of them. The reported rumors allegedly come from various test and focus groups who have had the opportunity to meet with members of the production staff to discuss the film.
Without further ado, lets give a quick run down of what has made its way online:
