Welcome to another edition of “Is That Guy Gonna Show Up in That Thing?” This is an ongoing series where we ask the question, “Is that guy gonna show up in that thing?” Today’s edition is brought to us by Suicide Squad director David Ayer, who earlier today posted the following picture to his Twitter account…

Who might that shadowy figure be? A lot of people are thinking it might be Jesse Eisenberg. And when I say they’re thinking it might be Jesse Eisenberg, I mean they’re taking it as 100% gospel truth that Lex Luthor is going to show up in Suicide Squad. I think the picture’s interesting, but I’m not completely sold on the idea. Anyone who’s ever laid eyes on Eisenberg knows the guy could stand to eat a ham sandwich or two. Whoever this is looks a little bulkier. Also, from what we know about the way Lex Luthor is going to be portrayed in these films, it doesn’t seem like Eisenberg is going to need much training at all, or even any training at all. Mark this one under, “dubious.”
But far be it from me to keep the public from their precious, precious speculating. It is, after all, how I make my living.** So until we get a definitive answer either way, we’ll just silently suffer through all the bad Lex Luthor/Suicide Squad fan art that’s sure to pop up on Instagram over the next few weeks.
