UPDATE: Will Smith, Tom Hardy And Margot Robbie Are "Close" To Joining SUICIDE SQUAD

The Hollywood Reporter revealed yesterday that Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy were all being eyed for roles in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. While there's no mention of The Wolf of Wall Street actress here, Deadline believes that the movie may have found its two male leads...


The Hollywood Reporter claimed yesterday that Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Tom Hardy were all being eyed for roles in Suicide Squad, the 2016 DC Comics adaptation which will be directed by Fury helmer David Ayer. The language they used was vague, and it didn't take long for one Variety reporter to jump in and point out that Warner Bros. often turn to high profile actors like these to "offer" them everything and anything. In other words, it was a casting story which made for a nice read, but probably wasn't worth getting too excited over. That seems to have all changed though as Deadline weighs in by revealing that both Will Smith (Men in Black) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) are indeed circling the film and are now "close to signing on". That sounds a lot more definite, and it could be that we now have Suicide Squad's two male leads. Who will they be playing? Your guess is as good as ours, but Hardy seems like a perfect fit for Deadshot and Smith could do with a hit after a few not so great movies. What do you guys think?

UPDATE:  The site now adds that The Wolf Of Wall Street star Margot Robbie is "also looking likely" for Suicide Squad as talks for a role in Ghost In The Shell for DreamWorks have fallen through (in fact, that studio has apparently offered Captain America: The Winter Soldier star 
Scarlett Johansson $10 million to take on the lead role in the anime adaptation). Do we have our Harley Quinn?
