First off, for those who don't know, the Suicide Squad "is an antihero team of incarcerated supervillains who act as deniable assets for the United States government, undertaking high-risk black ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences". Ripped that from Wikipedia.
Set for release just after Batman vs. Superman (SS is Aug. 5th 2016 and BvS is March 2016).
They'll likely be set in the same "universe", therefore its not unlikely to think that the stories will be related/intertwined.
For the casting, we've got...
Jared Leto as Joker -
Will Smith as Deadshot -
Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg -
Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn -
Apparently the Joker isn't normally a member, but with Harley Quinn being a constant, it makes sense ... I think Leto could DOMINATE this role. I think he's made for it actually. Brilliant bit of casting here in my opinion.
Smith is an interesting cast, but I think it could be really cool.
Hardy is awesome as anything. Even Bane ... Lol
Thoughts? I'm pretty pumped about this, and a little bit curious with how they manage the story line.
Any DC fans out there that can enlighten us some more?
