No matter how small the role, you would be hard-pressed to find a fan who wouldn’t love to be in a DC film. Be it an extra in the far distance, or someone sitting at a table in a diner, why not?

Sadly, people know this and can use it as a scam on the unsuspecting. Someone has posted a fake casting call for “Suicide Squad 2” promising to pay applicants $150 a day to be in the movie.

However, it seems everything about this is a scam and James Gunn took to his Instagram to debunk it. “This is a SCAM. It’s not even the name of the movie.” said Gunn. “I have no idea what someone has to gain from this con, but please beware of unscrupulous folks online. Thanks to the DC fans out there who brought it to my attention.”

We have to agree with Gunn that we don’t quite understand what people get out of this.

It’s just another unfortunate lesson that there is always someone out there trying to turn a good thing bad for their own gain.

If you see anyone casting for extras in any film, always make sure to research the company before you fill anything out!
