Warner Brothers today confirmed the lead actors/actresses who will star in their ‘Suicide Squad’ movie which is due Aug 5 2016.
Confirmed roles are:
Jared Leto as The Joker
Will Smith as Deadshot
Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang
Tom Hardy as Rick Flag
Cara Delevinge as Enchantress
Each are an interesting choice in their own right. Particularly Will Smith as Deadshot, which is unexpected. Personal reservations about Jared Leto will be kept under wraps until the film has actually been viewed so we don’t get another repeat of the Heath Ledger debacle.
There is also a nice mixture of veteran actors such as Hardy and Smith while it’s refreshing to see new talents such as relative newcomers to the game, Delevinge and Courtney.
One role which is still to be cast is Amanda Weller although there are also rumours that Oprah Winfrey is in talks to take the role. Jesse Eisenberg is also allegedly in talks to have his Lex Luthor appear in the film.
