So, the casting for the new DC movie 'Suicide Squad', has its' perks and it's very minor draw backs. The impressive cast of villains set to play in 'Suicide Squad' are, Jared Leto (Joker), Will Smith (DeadShot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Tom Hardy (Rick Flag), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller). With this amazing cast, I am pretty sure 'Suicide Squad' is going to be amazing. Okay, now i'm going to go through one by one the perks and draw backs of each character and casting for this AWESOME movie, with a little surprise you should all know by now.

Tom Hardy (Rick Flag)

Lets start with Tom Hardy as Rick Flag! Now, Tom Hardy is a remarkable actor making his debut in the thriller film 'Inception' (2010). His looks, his personality and his performance will all play a good part for him in the film. Seeing that he already has a war perception from the mini-series he played in 'Band of Brothers' would be an easy go for Hardy. I couldn't really find any draw backs for the character or Hardy being cast for Rick Flag.

Jai Courtney (Boomerang)

Both the actor and character for this film have draw backs and some perks. Jai Courtney, being one of the actors that played in the successful box office hit 'Divergent' (2014), would make you think that he is more than okay to play in another big hit film, but is that truly agreeable? I'm not so sure, Courtney's acting skills aren't all that satisfying in my opinion. Although the character is an original in the Suicide Squad, Boomerang just gives off a dead vibe. I'm willing to see how David Ayers brings this character to the big screen. Also, i believe that Jai has the potential to make this character like-able, so i'm hoping that it plays out well.

Will Smith (Deadshot)

I'm really happy that Will Smith is going to play Deadshot! Now, Will Smith is one of the greatest actors ever, and to see him play as an original Batman villain just blows my mind! I'm not a big fan of changing the ethnicity of an original character, but i think DC went down a good route with this one. Will Smith has the acting skills, and most of the looks to play Deadshot. I know for a fact that Smith will bring this character a good rep on the big screen. Deadshot is one of my favorite villains in the DC universe, and the fans will come-a-knocking on that ticket booth to see Will play Deadshot.

Cara Delevinge (Enchantress)

Cara Delevinge is a stunning actor, personality wise, and her beauty just captures you. That is why she is the best choice to play Enchantress in 'Suicide Squad'. Cara is going through her big breakthrough in acting in the next two years, with three movies set to come out this year(2015). A minor movie, Tulip Fever, A semi-major movie, Pan, and a movie to look forward to, Paper Towns, which is a romance-comedy. I don't know much about the character, but i have a feeling that she will be great on the big screen.

Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn)

Margot Robbie..........I Love You!! Okay, not really, but i'm excited to see her bring Harley M'F Quinn to the big screen. She is so gorgeous, and very attractive, thats one of the traits she can use to pull off this challenging role. The other traits is Harley's craziness, and undying love for the joker. This one would be hard. But i think Margot has the talent to pull it off.

Jared Leto (Joker)

This is the role and actor playing the role that keeps us on our tippy toes! Jared Leto playing the insane, brilliant character, The Joker! DC has been getting a lot of hype since the cast was announced, especially for this one. Some people don't like the idea, while most LOVE IT! including myself. Leto has proven himself to make a portrayal of challenging roles, look easy. One of his most magnificent performances was his role in Dallas Buyers Club, starring Mathew Mcconaughey and Jared Leto. The role which brought him an Oscar. Now, we all know how Amazingly amazing Heath's Joker was, and we all loved it so much, and hold him so dear to our hearts, but it's time to see how Jared will portray our infamous villain.

Ben Affleck (on set of Suicide Squad)

I'm sure, we have all seen these photo's run through the internet with people wondering if Afflecks Batman will just make a cameo, or at least be a small key part of the film. Ben Affleck arrived on set for 'Suicide Squad' wearing a suit. Will he be making a cameo as BRUCE WAYNE?! Hopefully! With Batman v. Superman coming out this year, we will all definitely be stoked to see the connection of these DC movies. It was recently announced that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was cast as one of our favorite villains, Killer Croc. Most have also heard rumored castings, From Jim Parrack, Jay Hernandez, Ike Baronholts, Raymond Olubawale, and Karen Fukuhara. All these actors possibly playing the roles of Deathstroke, El Diablo, Hugo Strange, King Shark and Platique. Hopefully some of these rumors are true. WE are also excited to see Viola Davis play our mean machine, Amanda Wallers.
