Suicide Squad Revealed…

Well friends, after many months of speculation  Warner Bros have finally announced the line up for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie and what an interesting and eclectic cast it is. Will Smith will be playing super-assassin Deadshot, Tom Hardy is Rick Flag (and not reprising his role as Bane as I thought he might), Jared Leto has been chosen as the clown prince of crime himself  The Joker, with his partner Harley Quinn being played by Margot Robbie. The Enchantress will be played by Cara Delevigne and Jai Courtney has been cast as Captain Boomerang.

Deadshot

As I said very interesting casting choices here, there is still the role of squad leader Amanda Waller up for grabs but so far I am more than happy with the cast as is, and the inclusion of the unstable yet powerful witch Enchantress is awesome, I love that character. Critically acclaimed director David Ayer will be directing and again he is an inspired choice with previous movies like Training Day, End of Watch and more recently Sabotage being realistic, gritty and violent flicks, his style will suit the Suicide Squad perfectly.

The Suicide Squad were originally created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru in 1959, making their first appearance in The Brave and the Bold #25. They were re-booted by John Ostrander in 1987, they are primarily a Government funded black ops team of Super-villains and disgraced Super-heroes, running covert missions out of their home base of Belle Reve prison under the watchful eye of ‘The Wall’ Amanda Waller (who has already been seen on the big screen in the recent Green Lantern movie, played by Angela Bassett). Suicide Squad begins principal shooting in April 2015.
