Warner Bros. has revealed its cast for David Ayer's Suicide Squad. Jared, Leto, Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne will make up the all-star cast in Warner Bros.’ super villain flick, set for release in August 2016!
Here is the list of characters making up the film:
Jared Leto – The Joker
Will Smith – Deadshot
Tom Hardy – Rick Flagg
Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn
Jai Courtney – Boomerang
Cara Delevinge – Enchantress
Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer and produced by Charles Roven, will begin shooting next April in Toronto.
According to insiders, Jesse Eisenberg is also in talks to play Lex Luthor in the film, a role he will first play in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, though the status of his deal is unknown.
“The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one,” WB President Greg Silverman said in a statement. “We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under David Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.”
Warners has always viewed this project as its “Oceans Eleven” to comic book movies and always wanted to load the roster up with top tier talent that compares to the ‘Ocean Eleven’ movies.
Warners still has the role of Amanda Waller, the character who oversees the team similar to Nick Fury in the Marvel universe, to cast before the film goes into production. The studio’s short list of actresses being eyed for the role includes Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Oprah Winfrey, whom sources say would be WB’s first choice for the part.
