Following their report that Chris Pine might be sought to play Hal Jordan in "Green Lantern," Latino Review has heard another rumor regarding another one of Warner Bros.' DC Comics films -- "Suicide Squad.'

According to a rumor originally posted to Umberto Gonzalez's Instagram page, Antiphon and his terrorist group Onslaught will go up against the Suicide Squad in the feature film. The rumor states that Ed Harris was rumored for the role of Antiphon, whose special ops team will be tasked with hunting down super powered individuals. Antiphon is a relatively minor DC Comics character, having appeared briefly in two issues of the early '00s "Suicide Squad" relaunch.
