Tom Hardy is leaving the Suicide Squad!
The Mad Max: Fury Road star has officially dropped out of the comic book film to complete work on the over-schedule The Revenant with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Hard to blame him as he gets to work with both Leo AND Oscar-nominated Birdman director Alejandro González Iñárritu.

But what happens to his character of Rick Flag? Who could possibly replace Tom??
According to The Wrap, director David Ayer is looking to enlist his End Of Watch star Jake Gyllenhaal as a replacement on the super-villain team!
And here we thought Nightcrawler was a member of the X-Men!
Jake may not have conquered the Oscars this year, but at least he can plant a Flag the DC universe.
