An Incarnation of The Suicide Squad as seen in the comics.

Suicide Squad Cast Has Officially Been Announced and It's Huge

by Steven Panzarella (@ProCreateSteve)

DC is officially moving forward with David Ayer’s (End of Watch, Fury) Suicide Squad film, and it now has a HUGE cast that includes Will Smith, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie(The Wolf of Wall Street), Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns, Pan), and Jai Courtney(Divergent). For those of you who have no idea what the Sucide Squad is, here is a history lesson according to Wikipedia “The modern Suicide Squad (created by John Ostrander and Ryan Scott) is an antihero team of incarcerated supervillains who act as deniable assets for the United States government, undertaking high-risk black ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences. The group operates out of Belle Reve Penitentiary, under the directorship of Dr. Amanda Waller. The Suicide Squad's existence helps to explain why many convicted villains in the D.C. Universe roam free without having heroes tracking them down—until they, inevitably, attempt or commit another crime.”  So far Smith will be playing batman villain and sniper Deadshot, Leto will play The Joker, Robbie will play the Joker’s on again off again love interest Harley Quinn, Hardy will play team leader Rick Flagg, Courtney will play Boomerang, and Delevingne will play Enchantress. Suicide Squad will be heading into production in Toronto by the end of the year so it can make its summer 2016 release date.
