The hype for this movie is growing and growing and it's just going to snowball from here, it's the one thing that DC are beating Marvel to the punch with a standalone Villain/Villain Team up move and the line up is insane! (Literally)
Let's have a roll call!
- Will Smith - Deadshot
- Margot Robbie - Harley Quinn
- Joel Kinnaman - Rick Flag
- Jai Courtney - Captain Boomerang
- Karen Fukuhara - Katana
- Cara Delevingne - Enchantress
- Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje - Killer Croc (That's some name btw)
- Jay Hernandez - El Diablo
- Adam Beach - Slipknot
That is only the Squad! We also have
- Jared Leto - The Joker
- Ben Affleck - Batman
- Viola Davis - Amanda Waller
There will be more obviously but you may aswell check IMDB if you wanna know who is playing "Guy on street 47" and such these are the characters who matter and oh my there are lots of them, this is my biggest worry about the suicide squad, they need to introduce all these interesting characters at one time!
Will it be good though?
I really hope so! If it isn't though I don't think it will be a complete failure I think even if it does end up a crowded mess some characters will still flourish in the same way that Ben Affleck saved BVS for me I think Jared Leto, Margot Robbie or Will Smith might save Suicide Squad from being a complete disaster, Speaking of Leto...
Is Leto going to be a car crash?
I admit he has large boots to fill but that's the beauty of it, his joker is nothing like the legendary Heath Ledgers so it's less like following him up and more like stepping into a new role with the same name and characteristics he's going to be nothing like we've seen before and that is a good thing! Leto is a fantastic actor and deserves a fighting chance. Personally I love everything iv see from him so far in the trailers, The laugh is creepy he seems very intense like a loose cannon. I'm cautiously hopeful for him.
Now let's talk about the Squad Themselves.
In my opinion Margot and Will are going to steal the show, maybe I'm wrong but I think most of the others will be sidelined, They are going to go with good guy deadshot doing bad things to worse people and Harley will just be the loveable rogue she always is as long as the gorgeous Miss Robbie can pull it off and something tells me she will but what about the others?
- Rick Flag - The poor bastard that has to keep this team together, I could see a few funny scenes with him being roasted by the likes of Harley and struggling to keep everyone in check. (At least I hope that's how it goes)
- Captain Boomerang - From the trailers he looks to be a live wire and seems to have a I don't give a fudge attitude he could be interesting!
- Enchantress - Creepy, Dirty, Mysterious, probably quite volatile and can't see her mixing well with others, she could be big trouble.
- Killer Croc - Now this guy can single handedly throw Batman himself around like a ragdoll I imagine the rest of the Squad could be quite worried about him.
- Slipknot - Honestly... I got nothing I think he's going to die early in the movie.
- Katana - She looks like she could be a massive bad ass doesn't she? I'm optimistic about this one too!
- El Diablo - From that one scene in the trailer where Deadshot has to get him there he seems like he could be the only one who is going to be mellow and try keep his cool out there.
I am cautiously optimistic about the movie I don't think it's going to break records or be the best thing since sliced avengers but I think it will do ok. Fingers crossed!
