David Ayer posted this picture on his Twitter today as the cast gathered for their first read-through of the Suicide Squad script.
Let’s see if I can name them all:
From L to R:
Director David Ayer
Will Smith as Deadshot
Joel Kinnaman as Col. Rick Flagg
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc
Jay Hernandez (looking rather hairless) rumored to be El Diablo
Karen Fukuhara rumored to be Plastique
Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang
Cara Delevingne as The Enchantress
Viola Davis as Amanda Waller
A big thanks to Spencer Perry over at SuperheroHype for helping me identify that trio on the end. Their involvement in the film is news to me at least, and likely to a lot of people. I remember quite liking Parrack on True Blood, and I’ll be interested to see who he’s playing especially.
Jared Leto, who is playing the Joker, is conspicuously absent in this shot.
Suicide Squad releases on August 5, 2016.
UPDATE: Umberto at Latino Review is now reporting that Beach is rumored to be Ravan, Parrack is playing Deathstroke, and Barinholtz will be Dr. Hugo Strange.
