SUICIDE SQUAD Cast Announced; Jared Leto Is 'The Joker' And Will Smith Is 'Deadshot'

Margot Robbie, Tom Hardy, Cara Delevingne, and more have all also been officially been announced, and we know exactly who they're playing! You can find all of the details after the jump, but needless to say, you're going to be very happy with who they've chosen for Harley Quinn...


The cast of Suicide Squad has finally been revealed, and there are definitely some major surprises. For a start, Will Smith is going to play Deadshot, and NOT Captain Boomerang as was previously reported. Instead, that role goes to Australian actor Jai Courtney, someone fans argued was a much better choice for that character since his name first came up. Tom Hardy is Rick Flagg, Cara Delevingne is Enchantress, but the biggest news is arguably the fact that Jared Leto has been confirmed as The Joker and that Margot Robbie is set to play the fan-favourite Harley Quinn.

This has all been CONFIRMED by the studio, so no more speculation. David Ayer is 
writing and directing, while Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce. Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, and Geoff Johns will be executive producing. "The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one," said Greg Silverman, president, creative development and worldwide production, in the announcement. "David Ayer returns to the studio where he wrote Training Day and brings his incredible ability to craft multidimensional villains to this iconic DC property with a cast of longtime Warner collaborators Will Smith and Tom Hardy, and other new and returning favorites: Margot, Jared, Jai and Cara. We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero."
