This is as big as it gets in terms of Super Hero Movie news. In fact movie news in general.
Warner Bros. Pictures has confirmed today that they have finalized the actors who will be portraying the Suicide Squad in the new action adventure.
The President of Warner Bros. , Greg Silverman was overjoyed to make the announcement to the press today. Silverman stated,
The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one. 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.”
I’m sure he had visions of yachts and mansions dancing in his head as he and the rest of the world know that this movie will be huge.
If you are not familiar with the story of Suicide Squad think the A-Team working for the government. They are basically a bunch of supervillains with a pardon to work for the government. They are sent on missions that are too dangerous for people who actually value their life. Because of their blatant disregard for life and the living, there is usually a high body count involved in any mission they complete.
Shooting for the film will start in April with the plans to wrap in September. The target release date has been set at August 5, 2016. Mark that on your calendar.
Here is the cast as confirmed – Warner Bros. is taking this very serious.
