Warner Bros. has announced their star-studded lineup for the upcoming Suicide Squad film, due out in 2016!
The cast is made up of many A-list actors, like Jared Leto, Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and Margot Robbie. Also signed on for the film are up and comers Cara Delevingne and Jai Courtney.
Here is the list of who will be playing which DC character:
Jared Leto as The Joker
Will Smith as Deadshot
Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg
Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
Jai Courtney as Boomerang
Cara Delevingne as Enchantress
Several of these casting choices were widely reported on in the past few weeks, like Robbie as Harley Quinn and Leto as The Joker. Delevingne was previously thought to have joined the film as Harley Quinn, but we’re surprised to see that she’s taking on a completely different role.
Suicide Squad will be directed by David Ayer (Fury) and filming will begin in April 2015 in Canada.
Greg Silverman, President of Warner Bros., said in a statement, “The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one. 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.”
Suicide Squad will open in theatres on August 5, 2016.
