It was reported recently that Will Smith, Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) were in talks to star in the Warner Bros. and DC’s Suicide Squad film. If Margot Robbie is confirmed, she could be a big contender to play Harley Quinn. Now Deadline is reporting that it’s getting closer to happening, with all three closer to signing.

Warner Bros. is really pushing for this film to come out fast. The team has become popular recently as we can see them in the newly-released Batman: Assault on Arkham, a DC animated original movie, and in season 2 of Arrow. David Ayer (End of Watch, Fury) is attached to direct.

Margot Robbie was in talks to play Major Kusanagi for the live-action Ghost in the Shell film for DreamWorks, but negotiations fell through. Now Scarlett Johansson is being considered.

If the deal is sealed, this won’t be the first time Will Smith and Margot Robbie will be working together. You can check them out in their upcoming film, Focus, where in the film they become romantically involved. In fact, they have gotten along great outside of the set (see below). Since they’re getting along great in real life, I’m thinking that Smith is being targeted to play Deadshot, since Deadshot and Harley Quinn have been romantically involved.

The Suicide Squad is a team made up of DC villains who are forced to work for the government, essentially turning them into the “good guys.” I’m surprised that the film is getting more hype than DC’s other superhero films like Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern. I guess it’s the age of the villains, as Sony is already planning its own villain team film with The Sinister Six.

If Margot Robbie is in fact going to play Harley Quinn, I think she’s got the look for it. Who do you think Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and Margot Robbie will play in the film?
