There have been a lot of casting rumours surrounding DCU films, but yesterday some casting was actually confirmed. Will Smith will play Deadshot, Jared Leto will play The Joker, while Margot Robbie will play Harley Quinn in the upcoming film adaptation of the Suicide Squad. The question is, can they pull it off? Will Smith is not best known for his villain roles, and Jared Leto has some big shoes to fill after Heath Ledger’s Joker became the new quintessential Joker look and feel. What do you think, is the casting right?
Will Smith has proven he can pull off pretty much any role, and I loved him in Hancook where he played an anti-hero that would have fit perfect in the Suicide Squad. I don't think I've ever seen Margot Robbie or Jared Leto in anything. Unlike most of the DCU fan base, I didn't care of Heath Ledger's Joker, so I'll be happy to see a new take on the character. We'll just have to wait and see what Leto does.
