Well after months of speculation we now know the cast of the Suicide Squad! It is as follows:
The Joker: Jared Leto
Harley Quinn: Margot Robbie
Lex Luthor: Jesse Eisenberg
Deadshot: Will Smith
Rick Flagg: Tom Hardy
Captain Boomerang: Jai Courtney
Enchantress: Cara Delevingne
This is a pretty great lineup (even though I was way off with my list)! But what I like most about this cast is that it includes Enchantress. That means the DC Movie Universe is going to introduce magic right away. They are not waiting around like Marvel has been. We still don’t know who will be the group’s morally gray leader Amanda Waller, but I am sure we will shortly considering this movie starts shooting soon. David Ayer who is known for his critically acclaimed crime movies is writing and directing. He will be a good fit for this group of rouges forced to be good.
Along the same lines the rumor is that CBS has found its Supergirl! Claire Holt from Vampire Diaries and its spinoff The Originals. This would make a lot of sense since Warner Brothers likes to use people they have worked with before. I have not seen the shows she has been in, so I can’t speek to her talent, but she does have the look.
Lastly it looks like the Sandman movie is about to get rolling. They have a script everyone likes, Neil Gaiman is very involved, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt has agreed to be the titular character. If Neil Gaiman on board so am I!
