Just a week before its release, the highly-anticipated “Suicide Squad” adds another major character from DC Universe. The Flash, portrayed by Ezra Miller, has been confirmed to make an appearance in the upcoming anti-hero movie which hits theaters next week.

According to sources, the scenes will be featured in the movie itself rather than in post-credit sequence. It will mark Miller’s second appearance as the Scarlet Speedster in DC films after appearing in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”.
The first track, called “Task Force X” and composed by Oscar-winning Composer Steven Price (“Gravity”), from the David Ayer-directed film has also been released. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Price explains how he scored the song. He says, “Guitar was always my first love, and it was something I never really got into my writing work.”
He reveals that he was inspired by David Bowie in composing the song. He says, “With this, the moment I saw it, there was something about the way it looks that made me feel like there was a sleazy ’70s sort of thing, and that made me think of David Bowie records, and ‘Station to Station’.”
“Suicide Squad” centers on a secret government organization led by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) giving a mission to a task force comprising of super villains, the Suicide Squad. They are assigned to execute dangerous tasks in exchange for shorter prison sentences.
