While the cast might look complete, it has been rumored Jesse Eisenberg might make an appearance in the movie to reprise his role as Lex Luthor (Remember he’s playing Lex in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) in addition to which the position of Amanda Waller who oversees the team is yet to be filled. Those being considered for the role include Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Oprah Winfrey.
