David Ayer Tweets Out First Cast Photo of 'Suicide Squad' Line-Up
Here they are…! Get your first look, sort of, at the cast of David Ayer's Suicide Squad for Warner Bros, featuring one hell of a line-up of actors for a one-off DC romp. The photo was tweeted out by writer/director David Ayer today, since (bring it on) production is about to begin on this, and it shows Ayer plus twelve other actors gathered for a "read through", meaning they read through the script to get a feel for their roles. It features everyone from Will Smith to Margot Robbie to Joel Kinnaman, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach, Jim Parrack (looking a lot like Tom Hardy) and even comedian Ike Barinholtz. Oddly, Jared Leto is missing, but I think we'll be seeing more of him soon enough.

Suicide Squad is a DC Comics movie from Warner Bros, directed by David Ayer (End of Watch, Sabotage, Fury) from a script by David Ayer based on the comic books. Will Smith is Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman is Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie is Harley Quinn, Jared Leto is Joker, Jai Courtney (Terminator: Genisys) plays Boomerang, Viola Davis plays Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne (Anna Karenina) is Enchantress, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is supposedly playing Killer Croc. All of these characters are part of a super villain team recruited by the government for secret missions. Our friend El Mayimbe is also claiming that Ike Barinholtz is playing Dr. Hugo Strange, Adam Beach is possibly Ravan and Jim Parrack (the hat in the middle) is playing Deathstroke. Lots of good DC characters. Production starts this month up in Toronto.
