Will Smith, Jared Leto, Cara Delevingne and more confirmed for DC's Suicide Squad
The high-profile cast for the new big-budget adaptation of beloved DC comic Suicide Squad has been announced, with Will Smith, Jared Leto and Cara Delevingne among them.
The Suicide Squad are a gang of villains and criminals, who are put together and forced by the US government into service as a disposable black ops team. They are led by a government operative Dr Amanda Waller.
Will Smith will lead the way as Deadshot, with Jared Leto playing The Joker and Delevingne as Enchantress. Tom Hardy will portray Rick Flagg, with The Wolf Of Wall Street's Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jai Courtney as Boomerang.
It was reported earlier this month that Jesse Eisenberg is set to transfer his Lex Luthor character from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and into Suicide Squad, but Eisenberg has, so far, not been announced for the film.
Suicide Squad is to be directed by Fury's David Ayer and will go into production next year, with a release date of August 5th in 2016 already confirmed.
