The cast for the upcoming DC team up villain movie "Suicide Sqaud" has now been officially confirmed.
The Suicide Squad are rag tag group of villainous psychopaths who are ordered by the government on missions so that their prison sentence will be reduced.
Jared Leto who recently won his Academy Award for his breathtaking performance in Dallas Buyers Club will be taking on the most iconic comic book villain of all time; The Joker! Ever since Leto was rumored I thought this was a perfect choice, his performance in Dallas Buyers Club was a complete transformation, I have no idea what kind of Joker we'll get from Leto, but I think he'll be unpredictable and completely insane with a lot of dark humor thrown in as well!
Will Smith who we'll next see in the film "Focus" will star as Deadshot, one of the most deadly assassin's in all of DC Comics. He's an expert marksman with a lot of wit, Smith will be perfect in the role. Smith has proven time and time again that he is one of the charismatic performers in Hollywood and I expect a lot of wise cracks from his Deadshot character.
Margot Robbie who is also starring in the film "Focus" will Will Smith and recently gave a fantastic performance in "The Wolf Of Wall Street" will be playing Harley Quinn, The Joker's right hand woman and love interest. Ever since seeing Robbie in "The Wolf Of Wall Street" last year I have been convinced she is the perfect fit for the Harley Quinn character, the casting is obvious yet its spot on!
Tom Hardy will be playing Rick Flag, who is rumored to be the teams leader. Hardy proved himself to be a more than intimidating villain in "The Dark Knight Rises" as Bane. Hardy has excelled in almost every role he's played in the past few years, most notably his performance in "Locke", we will next see Hardy in " [Mad Max: Fury Road](movie:41445)".
Jai Courntey who we will next see in "Terminator Genisys" will be playing Captain Boomerang, perhaps the most ridiculous member of all the Suicide Squad. Courtney is known for overplaying the seriousness in every role he's given, in "A Good Day To Die Hard" and "Divergent" he was boring and overly serious, perhaps playing a character as wacky as Captain Boomerang will let him show off his supposed talents a bit more.
And our final member of the Suicide Sqaud is Cara Delevingne as Enchantress. Delevingne is a supermodel who has started to work her way into film with small roles in "Anna Karenina" and in the upcoming "Pan", I assume her role will be the smallest out of all the members since she has the least acting experience.
Also in the running for the role of Amanda Waller are Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Oprah Winfrey. I personally am hoping for Winfrey to get the part as she has a commanding presence about her that is needed for a character like this. Amanda Waller is the character who is in charge of the Suicide Sqaud.
[Suicide Squad](movie:2283363) is being directed by David Ayer (Fury, End Of Watch) and will release in August 5th 2016! This has quickly become one of my most anticipated superhero films for the next few years, bravo DC!
