Scott Eastwood has joined the cast of Warner Bros’ “Suicide Squad,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap Tuesday.

His role is being kept under wraps, though he is said to be playing a DC comic book character named Steve Trevor, who fans recognize as the main love interest of Wonder Woman from the comic books, according to Latino Review.

There’s no word yet if Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman in this shared cinematic universe, will appear in “Suicide Squad,” but Eastwood is joining a cast that includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Cara Delevingne.

“I’m doing a movie called ‘Suicide Squad,'” the actor confirmed to ‘Entertainment Tonight’ Monday.

David Ayer is directing the film, about a group of supervillains who are forced to team up to do good by their handler, Amanda Waller (Viola Davis).

Eastwood will soon be seen in Nicholas Sparks’ adaptation “The Longest Ride” with Britt Robertson and he is currently filming Oliver Stone‘s “Snowden” with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He is represented by UTA and Joanne Horowitz Management.
