All the fan sites pegged Common as playing Black Manta in the upcoming “Suicide Squad” movie — ’cause, well … y’know — but now that we’ve seen him on set that doesn’t appear to be the case.
Our first glimpse of the rapper/actor in full costume actually has him looking more like Abel Tarrant … aka The Tattooed Man.
As DC legend has it … The Tattooed Man is the Green Lantern‘s archenemy, and has the ability to turn his tattoos into weapons (duh!).
For purpose of this movie … looks like he also tans really well.
