See the First Cast Photo of Suicide Squad! (But Where, Oh Where Is Jared Leto?)
Director David Ayer posts a pic from a read-through as production prepares to get underway
Here they are – the Suicide Squad!
Well, minus one key character.
Director David Ayer posted a cast photo of his upcoming superhero movie on Twitter on Wednesday, and everyone looks pretty psyched to get the production rolling.
Among those pictured: Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller).
It’s quite the collection of super villains. But of course, there’s a notable absentee – Jared Leto, who will play the Joker.
Perhaps he was the one taking the photo?
The shot also shows newcomers Jim Parrack, Adam Beach and Ike Barinholtz. Sources told Latino Report on Wednesday that they will play a younger Deathstroke, Ravan and Dr. Hugo Strange, respectively. Warner Bros. has not confirmed that.
Ayer said the cast was assembled for a read-through. Filming begins this month in Toronto, and the movie has a scheduled release date of Aug. 5, 2016.
