According to The Wrap within the same article where they broke the news of Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje being cast as Killer Croc, they also reported that newcomer Karen Fukuhara has been cast as an undisclosed role in Suicide Squad.
Warner Bros. nor anyone attached to the film has confirmed this casting, but one thing we do know is Cara Delevingne, who’s playing The Enchantress in Suicide Squad, is in fact following Fukuhara on instagram, moments after following Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and before following Scott Eastwood, who confirmed his casting in Suicide Squad.
Now who could Fukuhara possibly be playing? Well one thing we do know is that Suicide Squad director David Ayer has been on point with his casting when it comes to the actors looking like their fictional counter parts, and for us when we first saw a photo of Fukuhara, the first DC Comics character that came to mind was Katana.
We did some digging to back-up this train of thought:
Katana has had involvements with the Suicide Squad, she’s even part of the Suicide Squad DLC for LEGO Batman 3, Fukuhara is Japanese and she also knows Karate, as she’s won Karate Championships in the past. The only thing that hinders this theory is that Fukuhara seems a bit too young for the role, but they could change that for the film.
Of course this is pure speculation on our behalf and we also realize this could seem like an easy answer to who she’s possibly playing, but sometimes the easy answers are the right ones.
Also how awesome would be if Katana was in Suicide Squad?!
