For fans who thought Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice tried to incorporate too many storylines and superheroes into one film, Suicide Squad's increasingly large cast could be cause for concern. 

(Editor's note: Potential spoilers for Suicide Squad ahead). 

Along with the primary characters, a group of villains working for the U.S. government as a superpowered black-ops unit, the film is confirmed to also feature Batman (Ben Affleck) in a cameo appearance. We can now add the Flash (Ezra Miller) to the growing list as well.  

The character will appear alongside Batman and other DC Comic superheroes in the forthcoming Justice League film. He was added to Suicide Squad either during the extensive reshoots that occurred in April or even more recently, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Moreover, the Flash's appearance won't be in an end-credit teaser — a superhero movie staple — but rather part of the film's narrative.

It could be early in the movie too. In a copy of the Suicide Squad press kit, posted online by io9, the cast is listed in order of appearance. Intriguingly, Miller's character appears before some members of the villainous team, including Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Diablo (Jay Hernandez) and Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman). 

Considering the rumors that the Suicide Squad reshoots were to give the film a lighter tone — particularly after the financial success of Marvel's Deadpool and critical failure of Batman v. Superman — the addition of the Flash makes sense. 

Based on his brief cameo in Dawn of Justice, and the Justice League footage shown at San Diego Comic-Con, Miller's portrayal of the character fits the bill. He looks like the least serious member of the Justice League, by far. (He even watches Rick and Morty!)
