With news that Jared Leto is going to be the Joker and Margot Robbie will be Harley Quinn in the new Suicide Squad movie, no doubt as the villains, and Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor somehow attached, I thought I would do DC a favor and cast the rest of Task Force X for them. It is a big crew, so it was hard to find good people, but I think I did pretty well.
I figure they will need a big name to head this group, and it took me awhile to come up with someone, but I think he will be perfect: Ryan Gosling. He is young and strong, and he looks good when he is not talking. All good things for Deadshot. In case you have been living under a rock here is what he looks like:
This one was very easy. Since they didn’t take my advice on Wonder Woman, I got to use her again: Gina Torres. She is tough enough to hang with the boys, and you would take her seriously as a hero.
I figure this a good spot to introduce some humor, and why not give someone from TV a chance to get in to the spotlight, so I picked Jensen Ackles. He is my favorite part of Supernatural, and I am sure he would be a great addition to the Squad.
Blockbuster is pretty much a villainous Hulk ripoff, but you know what? A guy with super-strength is always a good addition to the team. Since you need someone huge for this role if you don’t want to use CG, I went with Randy Couture. He has been in several movies, and he doesn’t need to bulk-up any more.
I decided that they should pick someone that is already in the DC family, so I went with Cillian Murphy. He was great as Scarecrow, so why not let him loose as another DC villain, but this time with a bomb in his head and forced to be good!
I wasn’t really sure on who to use with this one, but I dug deep and came up with Adam Beach. I know he was in Walker Texas Ranger, but we are going to have to get past that. He has been pretty good in everything else he as been in, so why not the Suicide Squad.
Last one! Mindboggler. She is a super minor character, but I thought since she is the only other female member this time around, that I would give her some star power, so my choice is Keira Knightley. She has done action in the past, and I think she would have a lot of fun in this movie.
Well that is my Suicide Squad movie team! What do you think? Or what choices would you have made? Or what members would you rather see? Let me know!
