Hip-hop artist Common will have a role in this year’s anti hero movie Suicide Squad, but up until now we didn’t know who he would portray. Now, however, he told ComplexNews that he would be a character named “Monster T.”, and that this character would be affiliated with the Joker. Having seen his tattoos and piercings in the film, fans suspected him to be playing The Tattooed Man, a villain who essentially can bring his tattoos to life in tangible constructs, powers similar to those of Green Lantern.
Suicide Squad: It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 7.
