Greg Silverman announced today the cast of the Suicide Squad movie that will be directed and written by David Ayer (Fury) and scheduled for an August 5, 2016 release. WB just announced it’ll also be released 2D and 3D. His statement:
“The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one. David Ayer returns to the studio where he wrote ‘Training Day’ and brings his incredible ability to craft multidimensional villains to this iconic DC property with a cast of longtime Warner collaborators Will Smith and Tom Hardy, and other new and returning favorites: Margot, Jared, Jai and Cara. 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.”
Will Smith is Deadshot
Tom Hardy is Rick Flag
Joel Kinnaman is Rick Flag
Jai Courtney is Boomerang
Jared Leto is Joker
