After a lot of conjecture as to who would be who in Suicide Squad once the casting was finalized, has come to an end. Finally the roster for Warner Bros. adaptation of DC‘s Suicide Squad appears to be set.
According to Variety the squad’s roster is as follows.
Jared Leto as The Joker
Will Smith as Deadshot
Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg
Jai Courtney as Boomerang
Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
Cara Delevingne as Enchantress
Just earlier today it was reported that Hardy, Courtney, Robbie, and Leto were in final negotiation, and this news indicates that obviously negotiations were successful on all counts. It was only still rumored that Smith and Delevingne were to have any involvement, but this also proves that both were further into negotiations than initially reported.
Jessie Eisenberg will appear as Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and though it’s not been confirmed he is still in talks to reprise his role as Luthor in Suicide Squad. There is one more important role the needs to be cast soon, Amanda Waller. Waller is to the Suicide Squad what Nick Fury is to The Avengers, as she is responsible for overseeing their operations.
Warner Bros. are said to have a short list of candidates they are seeking for the role which includes Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Oprah Winfrey. According to sources, Winfrey is the clear-cut front-runner for this role.
