It’s official! Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto will be starring in Warner Bros. film, Suicide Squad.

Based on the DC Comic, the story is about a bunch of supervillains who are given a chance to redeem themselves by working with the government. There’s just one problem. The missions are so dangerous that they probably won’t make it back alive hence the name ‘Suicide Squad’.

The film is written and directed by David Ayers known for Training Day, End of Watch, Fury and more.

Here’s the complete lineup:


Jared Leto – The Joker

Will Smith – Deadshot

Tom Hardy – Rick Flag

Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn

Jai Courtney – Boomerang

Cara Delevingne – Enchantress

This is Leto’s first film since his big win at the Oscars for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Smith is starring in the new WB film Focus.

With Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America and Hulk, Marvel Comics has pretty much dominated the box office. Although I haven’t actually read comics, I do love these super hero films. The Batman films with Christian Bale were a big boost for DC but other then their TV shows, Arrow, Gotham and The Flash, they haven’t done much in the feature film department.

My inner nerd rejoices for this cast and I can’t wait to see the film set to be released in Summer of 2016.
