Big Screen Suicide Squad To Appear in Midway City

Even if the Hawks are not in the DC's big screen plans, it looks like their old home town is, as this article from Newsarama points out.  While checking in on the filming of the upcoming Suicide Squad film in Toronto, Ontario, Canadian entertainment news outlet Entertainment City snagged a pic of this sign, showing that "Hollywood North" will be standing in for Midway City.

Whether this has anything to do with the Carter and/or Shiera Hall, the Midway City Museum, Midway City Police Commissioner George Emmett, Mavis Trent, Hawk Valley, "Big Red," or the Doom Patrol remain to be seen.  

Suicide Squad opens on August 5, 2016, but in keeping with Internet fanboy regulations, no one is allowed to discuss nor be excited for a DC Comics movie, which is why you haven't heard anything about it.  The film stars Will Smith as Deadshot, and also includes Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje!), Rick Flagg, Harley Quinn, and others.

So what do you think?  Will we get any Hawk-related gags or Easter Eggs in Suicide Squad?
