Suicide Squad

With (our good friend) Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Will Smith – yes, that Will Smith – as Deadshot.

As reported by io9, this casting finally ends the rumours as to who will play the collection of supervillains. Suicide Squad sees them forced to come together to carry out the government’s dirty work, so it could work really well. Some interesting casting choices there – I’ve no idea who Rick Flagg is but Tom Hardy is always good value, and Margot Robbie playing Harley Quinn is a fantastic choice. Also, my countdown timer for when Will Smith pulls out has started. However, it’s Jared Leto‘s takeover of the Joker role that will have the most focus. He certain has the intensity, but does he have the dark humour?

We’ll find out…in 2016.

Final request, though: CAN HOLLYWOOD PLEASE STOP CASTING JAI COURTNEY. IN ANYTHING. EVER. Ahem. Thanks.
