Remember when pretty much everyone in Hollywood was rumored for the role of Doctor Strange? Pretty much the same thing is happening with the Deadshot role in Suicide Squad.
According to Variety, Terminator: Genesys and Divergent actor Jai Courtney is up for the role of Deadshot in the Suicide Squad movie. In addition to their report on Courtney, Variety also offered some clarification on what roles other actors rumored to be in the running for the film are up for.
As previously reported, Jared Leto is up for the role of Joker, Margot Robbie is up for Harley Quinn (and by some reports already cast), and Tom Hardy is up for the role of Rick Flag. While Variety admits to being a little uncertain on Will Smith's role, they report that sources indicate that he's probably up for the role of Captain Boomerang.
Jesse Eisenberg will also reportedly be reprising his role as Lex Luthor from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Suicide Squad is being produced by Charles Roven and directed by David Ayer. Suicide Squad is scheduled to be released on August 5, 2016.
