With an arrow episode hinting and basically showing Amanda Waller assembling a "Squad" we all knew the Suicide Squad was coming and we are now introduced to them!
The Suicide Squad:
Michael Jai White as Ben Turner aka Bronze Tiger
Sean Maher as Mark Scheffer aka Shrapnel
Cynthia Addai-Robinson as Amanda Waller
Michael Rowe as Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot
Audrey Marie Anderson as Lyla Michaels,
David Ramsey as John Diggle in Arrow.
This episode is going to be Diggle-heavy which is good becaause he's a great charater portrayed by a great actor and not to mention awesome!
“The coolest part is we actually have Ben Browder back, who played Dig's former commanding officer, who is a villain in the present day - but back in the old days he was just Dig's commanding officer. A special shout-out to Ben Browder, because he actually took a significant pay cut to do this, because this episode was getting out of hand financially, and he just said, 'You guys are cool guys, and I had fun.’ So he is a great guy.”
“He is awesome in this episode. It's so much fun to see him play -- obviously he's playing the same character, just like the way Stephen plays Island Oliver and present-day Oliver -- but Ben is bringing this nice little subtle difference to the flashback, especially in his relationship with Diggle. They're commanding officer and subordinate, but they're still friends, and you see that closeness that was all just talked about in episode 11 from last year. So it's a treat for us.”
We can look forward to the "Suicide Squad" episode of Arrow March 19th
