Today David Ayer, writer and director of the upcoming super villain spectacular Suicide Squad, tweeted out a picture from a cast read-through. Casting news has been trickling out for this project for the last five months or so, but this is the first time we’ve seen the whole cast. Well, the whole cast minus Jared Leto. Let’s assume they made him take the picture.
If you haven’t been following along, we’ve got Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Plastique and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. And also… is that? Ike Barinholtz, what the crap are you doing in there? Adam Beach of Flags of Our Fathers and Windtalkers (and Smoke Signals!) is another a surprise addition.
Also missing from the picture is our Lex Luthor, Jesse Eisenberg.
