Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto are officially set to star in Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. announced Tuesday.
Also cast in the movie based on the DC Entertainment villains-forced-to-be-heroes are Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne. Much of the castings have been previously reported, but the studio also confirmed which characters the actors will play.
Smith will play Deadshot, best known as a Batman villain, while Hardy plays the group’s leader, Rick Flagg.
Leto will take on the Joker, while Robbie will play Harley Quinn, his on-and-off girlfriend. Courtney will be Boomerang, while Delevingne, the model-turned-actress who is also in Warners’ Pan tentpole, will play Enchantress, a sorceress.
Is anyone else shocked that Will Smith’s superhero debut (Hancock notwithstanding) is not just as Deadshot, but in an ensemble role?
Tom Hardy pulling a Chris Evans and being TWO characters within the same universe?
Jared Leto playing…Well, OK the Jared Leto as Joker part makes perfect sense.
Anyway, this movie could be really good. You know, as long as Jaden Smith stays plenty far away from it.
