The Flash star Neil Sandilands is excited to see Peter Capaldi’s take on The Tinker in the upcoming The Suicide Squad.
Neil Sandilands is currently starring in Netflix’s Sweet Tooth but fans loved him as The Thinker in the fourth season of The Flash. For a while, it seemed that Sandilands’ take on the character would be the definitive one but then it was revealed that The Thinker would also be seen in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. In a recent interview with ComicBookMovie.com, Sandilands was asked what he thought about Peter Capaldi’s version of The Thinker. The Flash actor is admittedly excited to see another prolific and acclaimed actor take on the complex villainous role.
“I think it’s marvellous. If you could take something like The Joker who has been embodied by so many performers, when you get handed something like that, it’s a gift, I think we all, as actors, are in a sense finite to what you can actively bring as a vehicle or vessel. Another Thinker may explore other avenues that I didn’t necessarily think of and vice versa.”
The Flash star continued by discussing how he’s looking forward to comparing both versions of the character.
“It’s fascinating to see what other people bring to it and I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with it. I might look at his performance and go, ‘Holy Moly, mine is fairly pedestrian!’ In that case, it’s always good to applaud and cheer. You can become a cheerleader for other people’s interpretations.”

Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
