SUICIDE SQUAD: Apparently 'Antiphon' & His Onslaught Group Will Be The Main Villains

Task Force X went up against this super-powered team of Quraci terrorists numerous times in the DC comic books, and it looks like they'll be facing some live-action versions of Onslaught in David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie. No casting info. yet, but click on for what we do have...



According to Latino review scooper El Mayimbe, David Ayer's Suicide Squad will be taking on Onslaught and their leader, Antiphon. In the comics these guys were a team of supervillians made up of various terrorists from Qurac (a fictional Middle Eastern Country in the DC Comics universe), and Greek team member Antiphon was a fairly minor character with super-speed powers -- but it sounds like there might be a few changes made for the movie interpretations.

"Onslaught are hunting super heroes & villains for their own agenda," reports Mayimbe. "They're like a special ops team made up of mercenaries. Antiphon is a burn victim & has a prosthetic leg." He also reckons this was the role Ed Harris was rumored for, but has no information on who'll actually play the character yet.

Like Task Force X, there have been several incarnations of Onslaught over the years but Antiphon was a member of the most recent one, and his team-mates included: Digital Djinn, Hyve, Rustam (who was actually the leader) and Tolteca. Will those guys make up Onslaught in the movie? We may have more information on that tomorrow, so check back then.
