Warner Bros. has announced Suicide Squad, a film based on the DC villain team forced to serving the government. Some of the key players in the team are Deadshot and Harley Quinn. We have three actors close to signing on, and they are Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy.

Margot Robbie has made a name for herself starring opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street. If she’s confirm, she may possibly be playing Harley Quinn. But who is Will Smith and Tom Hardy going to play?

Smith has an upcoming film with Robbie called Focus. In that film, they have a romantic relationship. The actor and actress are also getting along great in real life.


If I was Warner Bros., I would probably have them paired up together due to their chemistry. So that leads me to think that Smith will be playing Deadshot, since he has had history with Harley Quinn in the comics and animated film.

Suicide Squad will be directed by David Ayer (End of Watch, Fury). It’s scheduled to be released on August 5, 2016, making it the first DC film after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

If Will Smith is going to play Deadshot, what do you think about him as the killer marksman? Sound off below!
