So, we already knew that there was a Suicide Squad movie coming out in 2016. That was exciting. This latest, however? WAY MORE EXCITING. And there are definitely some major surprises. For a start, Will Smith is going to play Deadshot, and NOT Captain Boomerang which was previously reported
Suicide Squad has been cast. Here's the lineup, and its flipping awesome!
- Will Smith as Deadshot
- Tom Hardy as Rick Flag
- Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
- Jai Courtney as Boomerang
- Cara Delevingne as Enchantress
- Jared Leto as the Joker
This has all been CONFIRMED by the studio, so no more speculation. David Ayer is writing and directing, while Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce. Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, and Geoff Johns will be executive producing.
"The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one," said Greg Silverman, president, creative development and worldwide production, in the announcement.
"David Ayer returns to the studio where he wrote Training Day and brings his incredible ability to craft multidimensional villains to this iconic DC property with a cast of longtime Warner collaborators Will Smith and Tom Hardy, and other new and returning favorites: Margot, Jared, Jai and Cara. We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero."
