WATCHMEN’s Jackie Earl Hayley Rumored For ‘Thinker’ Role In SUICIDE SQUAD

We might just be able to add yet another DC villain’s name to the roster of bad guys that will be showing up in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie. Rumor has it that Jackie Earl Hayley (Watchmen, Robocop) could be playing an incarnation of The Thinker…

Latino Review’s El Mayimbe is back with another Suicide Squad related scoop… or, as he admits himself, more of a rumor this time. Mayimbe has heard Jackie Earl Hayley’s name “tossed around” for the role of The Thinker in the movie, but he cautions we should take it with a grain of salt until there’s something more solid. Hayley will be best known to you CBMers as Rorschach in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen, but he also played Freddy Krueger is the Nightmare on Elm Street remake, and most recently appeared as a villain in the Robocopreboot.

The Thinker is an alias that’s been used by several characters in the DC Comics Universe, but it’s a safe bet the movie iteration will be based on the original: Clifford DeVoe; a genius inventor who harnessed his intellect as a weapon using his “Thinking Cap.” DeVoe was a member of the Injustice Society and the Suicide Squad after starting out as a Flash villain. No details on the role he’ll be playing in David Ayer’s adaptation, but considering this is the first we’ve heard of his involvement, chances are it won’t be a substantial one. We’ll update if and when we have any more details.
