Suicide Squad Cast Made Official.

By on December 2, 2014

DC has announced their cast for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie… and they’ve come out swinging with some A-List actors.

The squad is as follows:

Will Smith as Deadshot.

Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg.

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang

Cara Delevingne (Who I won’t pretend I’ve heard of before this) as Enchantress

Appearing along them will be Jared Leto as The Joker (and despite a lot of criticism of this already, I’m actually pretty excited by this casting move – and lets not pretend everyone thought the last Joker casting was universally accepted) and it is rumored that Jesse Eisenberg (a casting move I was less excited about)¬†will appear as Lex Luthor.

Rounding this out, it was also announced that David Ayer – who wrote The Fast and the Furious and Training day, and wrote and directed Fury – will direct.

This casting move is bold, and I honestly like it. They are playing catch up to Marvel in terms of creating a linked cinematic universe, and by including these actors (especially Smith, Hardy and Leto) it’s a draw to a DC property that is, arguably, lesser-known and get the average movie-goer to want to see this. Profits equal sequels, which equals more comic movies, which is a huge win.
