Warner Bros and DC have officially announced the casting for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.
- Jared Leto as The Joker
- Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
- Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg
- Will Smith as Deadshot
- Jai Courtney as Boomerang
- Cara Delevingne as Enchantress
WB President Greg Silverman had the following to say regarding the upcoming release, “We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under David Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.”
For those of you who are up to snuff on the Suicide Squad, you may be asking, “Well who the hell is going to play the tough leader of the villains, Amanda Waller?” Well, rumor has it that Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Ms. Oprah Freakin Winfrey may be up for the part. One can only hope that Oprah gets to play the morally gray, no nonsense warden/team leader.
As far as casting goes, I think this is pretty damn good. You have an Oscar winner, a woman who’s played alongside Leo DiCaprio (and held her own very well), one of the most charismatic actors of our generation, and BANE (who’s performance was the highlight of the last Batman movie) rounding out 2/3’s of the cast.
