Not long after the announced Suicide Squad movie to appear in 2016, rumors of possible actors playing in the film.

  • Ryan Gosling
  • Margot Robbie
  • Will Smith
  • Tom Hardy

Fine actors, each and every one of them. I'd like to give my thoughts as to whom they might be playing.

First you have Ryan Gosling and to me, I agree with the rumor that he is playing Floyd Lawton AKA Deadshot.

Ryan Gosling = Deadshot
Ryan Gosling = Deadshot

Then there is Will Smith, some are theorizing that he will be Bronze Tiger and...yeah I can kind of see it but I see Smith playing someone with speed and martial arts, like Black Spider. He's the perfect age, he looks like him, and I know he can do action as long as it's not directed by Shyamalan.

Will Smith = Black Spider
Will Smith = Black Spider

Next there is Margot Robbie and most immediately jump to her playing as Harley Quinn....No. Sorry, I do not see it. She just seems too old to play her and the only thing about her that resembles Harley is that she's a blonde but I do see her as Louise Lincoln AKA Killer Frost. That would be cool.......don't ever let me make those types of jokes again!

Margot Robbie = Killer Frost
Margot Robbie = Killer Frost

And finally we have Tom Hardy, who has been rumored to play as Bane. Yeah the faster I forget about Tom Hardy's Bane the better. Nah, to me I see Captain Boomerang and yes partially because he's an Australian man but also I would love to see Captain Boomerang in a live action film. Captain Boomerang is who killed Tim Drake's parents and so that could lead to one of my all time favorite heroes being on the big screen.

Tom Hardy = Captain Boomerang
Tom Hardy = Captain Boomerang

I also want to do some fan casting for members of the squad starting with the little jester who stole my heart: Harley Quinn. To me, the perfect casting here goes to Jena Malone. She looks like Harley, she's beautiful, and she's got the acting chops. You can't get an better than her in my opinion.

Jena Malone = Harley Quinn
Jena Malone = Harley Quinn

Amanda "The Wall" Waller is the one behind the scenes who hires the different villains to carry out missions for ARGUS. CH Pounder does a great job in all the animated shows and films but if I had to cast a live action Waller, I'd pick Kerry Washington. Great actress and I'm pretty sure anybody is better than who they got to play her in Arrow. Angela Bassett was also not a bad choice but I don't know if she's willing to return after the undeserved fate of the Green Lantern film.

Kerry Washingtom = The Wall
Kerry Washingtom = The Wall

And I'll end this with just one more possible member who I think would be interesting on the team: the Joker. Think about it, a team filled with a bunch of calm and calculated villains have to team up with the wildest villain you'll ever meet. And there are many who I would like to see play the character: Benedict Cumberbatch, Crispin Glover, or even Michael Fassbender (He is also a possible choice for Batman) but my choice is Adrian Brody. A man usually known for playing the dramatic character, imagine what would happen if you let him go fully insane on camera. It would be enjoyable as hell. Usually I am tired of Joker since he's been overdone...but then I realized I haven't seen a perfect Joker on film. The only two perfect Jokers I know of are Troy Baker and Mark Hamill.

Adrian Brody = the Joker
Adrian Brody = the Joker

What are your thoughts on this whole Suicide Squad thing? Personally I think it is a great idea for a movie and could allow general audiences to get to know the DC villain roster better. Like my choices? Hate them? Tell me down below in the comments!
