Suicide Squad cast revealed: Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Cara Delevingne & More!

Suicide Squad cast officially confirmed, Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Jared Leto are set to star in “Suicide Squad” for writer-director David Ayer.

We already knew that David Ayer (Fury, End Of Watch) was set to direct Suicide Squad, and he’s doing some work on the script too. Now Warner Bros has revealed that the film will star Will Smith, who takes on the role of Deadshot. Then there’s Tom Hardy, back in the land of DC following The Dark Knight Rises, and this time playing Rick Flagg.

Margot Robbie will bring Harley Quinn to the screen, and Jared Leto becomes the latest actor to take on the role of The Joker.

Jai Courtney, meanwhile, will be playing Boomerang, and Cara Delevingne will be bringing Enchantress to life in the movie.

In the words of Greg Silverman, Warner Bros’ president of creative development and worldwide production, “we look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero”.

One name missing from the casting list thus far is Jesse Eisenberg, who was rumoured to be reprising the role of Lex Luthor in the film. That’s still likely to be the case, and we’d expect further casting announcements in due course.

Suicide Squad will land in cinemas on August 5th 2016, with production set to start in April.
