Suicide Squad

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.

Here is the tweet David Ayer posted along with the message: "Cast read through today! #SuicideSquad"

Photo in full here - look out for newest additions Adam Beach and Ike Barinholtz hidden in this group:

Suicide Squad Tweet

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.

Those two blokes on the right look like brothers and are great character actors.

They DO look like Wahlbergs. My first thought.

Haha. It's like a separate species.

That girl on the right below the black chick, looks like a holocaust victim.. Where is Leto??

Don't see him either.

avconsumer2 on Apr 9, 2015


So.... Will Smith (& unpictured Jared Leto).

avconsumer2 on Apr 9, 2015


this will be great because Ayer directs...

ari smulders on Apr 9, 2015


I cannot believe Will Smith is in this, you know you would think after Independence Day alone nobody would put him in movies like this.
