So, we already knew that there was a Suicide Squad movie coming out in 2016. That was exciting. This latest, however? WAY MORE EXCITING.

Suicide Squad has been cast. Here's the lineup, and it is a doozy!

  • Will Smith as Deadshot
  • Tom Hardy as Rick Flag
  • Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
  • Jai Courtney as Boomerang
  • Cara Delevingne as Enchantress
  • Jared Leto as the Joker

Holy mind-blowing casting, Batman! There as some serious heavy hitters in there. And some lesser-known names, too.

So, to sum up. Aug. 6, 2016, David Ayer directs Suicide Squad, aka the movie about the bad guys doing good-guy stuff, but still evil. Because all those dudes are pretty evil.

And, to reiterate, Jared Leto is the Joker. That actually turned out to be true! And Harley Quinn will actually be in a live-action movie. FINALLY. Played by Margot Robbie, which ... shazam. Yes. Sounds good.

Also, Will Smith. But whatevs. Just one of the biggest Hollywood stars of all time. No big.

All right, all right. Chime in -- what do ya think?
