As of right now the list of actors rumored to be lined up for the film are Tom Hardy, Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto, none of these actors have been officially confirmed to being cast for the film by Warners Bros.
Suicide Squad is being written and directed by filmmaker David Ayer, who’s best known for Fury, End of Watch, Fury and Training Day.
Even though the reports are stating that Jai Courtney will be playing Deadshot, many fans speculate he’ll actually be playing Captain Boomerang as both Boomerang and Courtney are Australian.
