Holy Crap, Huge 'Suicide Squad' Cast Officially Revealed!

Warner Bros. just announced who will be starring in their upcoming Suicide Squad movie, and it’s a freaking doozy. The Suicide Squad is a team of super-villains who are tasked with impossible missions by the US Government, which they get a pardon if they succeed – many compare it to The Dirty Dozen. Over the years it has been a band of many different characters, but this group has some special names – check it out!

It has been announced that Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, and Cara Delevinge are the stars for Suicide Squad. As for who they are playing? Smith is Deadshot, Hardy is Rick Flagg, Leto is DC’s new Joker, Robbie is Harley Quinn, Courtney is Captain Boomerang, and Delevingne is Enchantress! How about that list?

Rick Flagg (Hardy) is the leader of the group, followed close behind is the world’s most deadly assassin Deadshot (Smith). The Joker (Leto), who needs know introduction, and Harley Quinn (Robbie), his sidekick/on and off girlfriend, are two of the best villains DC has to offer. It’s also been stated that the Joker has been around for sometime and Ben Affleck’s Batman does know about him (AWESOME), possibly even tussled once or twice (hopefully)? Then rounding out the team with Captain Boomerang (Courtney) and Enchantress (Delevingne).

'Suicide Squad' Cast Line-up

I for one am ecstatic about this one! This is one of my favorite groups out there. Following a team of super villains? It should be some fun, if done right! And it should be as it’s being directed by David Ayer. Plus the characters chosen are incredible, there couldn’t have been better choices. That goes for casting as well, it’s incredible, just look at it. Who ever would’ve thought we would see a superhero/super-villain movie with names like Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, and Margot Robbie? It’s now the genre to get into and I’m damn happy for it.

Here’s the official press release:

“The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one. David Ayer returns to the studio where he wrote Training Day and brings his incredible ability to craft multidimensional villains to this iconic DC property with a cast of longtime Warner collaborators Will Smith and Tom Hardy, and other new and returning favorites: Margot, Jared, Jai and Cara. We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.”

Suicide Squad has a August 5th, 2016 release date. Directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, and Cara Delevingne.
