Hello fellow moviegoers!
So, we have known that there has been a 'Suicide Squad' movie in the works for a while now. There has definitely been a large amount of rumors surrounding the project, and its cast. I even covered a recent rumor that Jared Leto would play the Joker. Well, as it turns out, there was some validity to those rumors as the official cast for Suicide Squad has just been revealed!
The official cast is as follows...
Personally, I am a pretty big fan of this casting. When they first announced this movie, I was one of those people that went out of my way to say "WHY?!?!?". But as time has gone on, and rumors were starting to spread about the project and the cast, I started warming up to it. Now that this cast is official, I can say that I am very excited for this movie. This is a very star-studded cast, and these actors and actresses are very good at what they do. Add on to that, that a few of these people are very good at choosing what movies they should be in and what not to.
One casting I am very happy about is Will Smith as Deadshot. When his name started to be thrown around I was excited at the thought of who he could be, but now that he is Deadshot, I am ecstatic. Tom Hardy is another name I am happy with. Tom Hardy is one of the best young actors out there right now, and rumor states he was even offered the role of Apocalypse in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' before it was given to Oscar Isaac. I am happy to see him returning to DC even though his friendly director Christopher Nolan is not.
I have already talked about my thoughts of Jared Leto as the Joker, which you can read about here. I love the casting, but I am still afraid that his character is being forced into the script, which I don't like. Margot Robbie will make a great Harley Quinn, and I am so glad we finally get this character on the big screen. I just really hope, that they cast her after they cast Leto. You should cast Quinn based on her chemistry with The Joker, not the other way around.
There is still a rumor that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will appear in the film, and that Oprah will be playing the villain, which will most likely be Amanda Waller. I am all in for seeing Eisenberg's Luthor just as long as he is not part of the team. I hope he is a side character, not a main one. I am kind of meh on Oprah being Waller, but it is still just rumor at this point.
I haven't really seen Jai Courtney, or Cara Delevigne in anything, but I have faith in Warner Bros. decisions with the rest of the cast, so I have faith in this as well. Overall I love the casting, I am a little worried Joker will be forced, but I honestly cannot wait for this film. Good job DC. The hype-train is starting to take off!!
What do you think of this casting? Do you think Joker and Luthor should be in this film? Let me know by commenting on this post! Thanks for stopping by!
