Final Lineup for Suicide Squad ReleasedDecember 3, 2014
The final list to portray the Suicide Squad on the big screen has been made.
The President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production for Warner Brothers, Greg Silverman announced the final cast list for the Suicide Squad movie that will be directed by David Ayer (Fury).
The cast list will be as follows: Will Smith as Deadshot; Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg; Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn; Oscar winner Jared Leto as the Joker; Jai Courtney as Boomerang; and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.
The cast list is full of solid actors who have all given wonderful performances in the past, but I have some reservations about a few of the choices. The first thing I want to say is that I have nothing against Will Smith being Deadshot; who the hell cares if he is black, white, or purple, if he can pull it off, that should be all that matters. As for Jared Leto playing the Joker, I want him to make his own Joker and not to try and be what Heath Ledger or what Mark Hamill were to the character. Leto needs to take the character and put himself into it; he needs to make us want to love/hate the character as many other actors have been able to do so far. I get Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg… but he was already Bane, so all I see is Bane is another costume. There could have been another actor cast that has not already been in this universe.
Regardless, I can’t say who will be great and who will be terrible considering the movie is still in production and we haven’t seen a thing about it. Once we are actually able to see the movie I will make my final statements about it.
The film is set to be released on August 5th, 2016.
