The next super-teamup movie is on the way and this time it’s DC’s Suicide Squad. Here’s a little background For those of you who aren’t familiar with the squad. Some of DC’s top villains get together to form a team of anti-hero super villains and they undertake crazy missions to try and get their prison sentences reduced…as if they couldn’t just escape by themselves.
The film, which is set to begin shoot next April, will feature some big names. The actors and the roles they’ll be playing are in order.
Jared Leto as The Joker
Will Smith as Deadshot
Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
Tom Hardy as Rick Flag
Cara Delevingine as Enchantress
Jai Courtney as Boomerang
Director David Ayer might just be the perfect man for the job, as he’s directed Training Day, SWAT and Fury just to name a few. Jesse Eisenberg is also likely to reprise his Lex Luthor role from Batman vs. Superman…I know, I know it hasn’t even come out yet so how can I say reprise… just let it slide, okay?
While I’m not too sure that Will Smith has the depth to play such a crazy psycho in Deadshot, I am VERY interested to see Leto’s take on The Joker. He’s got some huge shoes to fill following Jack and Heath’s performances, but I think he’s a great choice.
