Rumor has spread that Warner Brothers was in talks with four A-list actors for the upcoming 2016 DC Cinematic Universe film, [Suicide Squad](movie:2283363), directed by David Ayer. This rumor has now become more specific, saying that the group of actors being targeted is as followed:
- Ryan Gosling
- Tom Hardy
- Will Smith
- Margot Robbie
I'm sure this rumor will eventually spread even more, regarding who these actors will supposedly be playing, but until then I'll do my best to cast them myself...
Ryan Gosling has a ruggedness to him that certainly pulls towards Deadshot. In films like Drive and A Place Beyond The Pines, Gosling shows he can make a good anti-hero badass.
Although he has already played a main antagonist in a DC Comics film as Bane in the ever-so-disappointing The Dark Knight Rises, Tom Hardy has the accent for it, as well as being able to easily portray a jackass.
As he has proved in most of his films, he is only interested in films if he is the leading man or if his son is in it. He surely is at the point in his career where he is entitled to this, nevertheless he could pull it off.
Since Affleck's Batman is in his mid-forties and retired and Jason Todd has a memorial in the Batcave, The Joker can already exist and so can Harley Quinn, they can also already be separated.
There are also a handful of other characters, that will be beside, behind, or in the shadows from these four main members:
