Update: David Ayer shares the first photo of the cast of Suicide Squad

04.08.2015

Update: El Mayimbe of Latino-Review is reporting that Jim Parrack has replaced Joe Manganiello in the role of Deathstroke because they decided to go younger with the character. Ike Barinholtz and Adam Beach, the other two new cast-members, are said to be playing Dr. Hugo Strange and Ravan respectively. Keep in mind that while these actors are appearing in the film, the identity of their roles is purely rumour at this point.

The age of Twitter is a great time to be a movie fan; directors and actors alike are sharing set photos and interacting with fans on a level previously unheard of. Of course there's also a dark side to Twitter, such as the inevitable day when one of my followers goes back far enough and discovers that I'm wanted for a string of prostitute murders. Just call me Redjac.

David Ayer has been one of those directors eager to share with his fans and today he posted a photo of his entire cast at their very first table read of SUICIDE SQUAD...minus Jared Leto; check it out!

Looks like we have some newcomers to add to the ever growing cast, this photo includes Adam Beach, Jim Parrack, and Ike Barinholtz putting in their first appearances. If you're wondering why Leto was not included in the photo Variety reports that it's because he's currently on tour with his band 30 Seconds to Mars, but we also know that the band has postponed their scheduled April 10th gig in Dubai due to Leto's commitments on SUICIDE SQUAD so I don't know what to believe! Leto's transformation into the Joker is still underway; several days ago Leto posted a photo on his Instagram teasing the next step of his transformation.

 

Transformation begins.

SUICIDE SQUAD begins filming very soon for a August 5, 2016 release.

This movie is gonna kick ass! I hope they go with that plot outline rumor a while back, about the arkham jail break. Either way, I'll be there opening weekend! Ayer is as reliable as it gets, and Leto is a great actor, method, wouldn't be surprised if he went on a killing spree to prep for the role lol. I can see his slim frame pulling the look off too. And that kid who played robocop plays a good tough guy, saw glimpse of it in Run All Night (terrible movie though). I like the cast. I have

Absolutely pumped for this movie. Still iffy on Latino Review's rumours of who Ike, Jim and Adam are playing, Mayimbe is hit or miss with his rumours. With filming beginning soon, I guess we will soon find out.

He's so damned ... blonde!

Seriously though (see what I...) I think Leto will do a terrific job and this movie will kick all sorts of DC ass.

I really know nothing about suicide squad other than those characters from Batman (joker, harley, killer croc, etc). Honestly I probably wouldn't give this much attention, except for the fact that Ayer is directing. The guy has made some really solid films. I would almost go as far as saying that with all the new director announcements for upcoming comic book films, he is by far the best director.

Leto's Joker

I think Leto is/was an awesome choice for Joker but this makes me question his commitment to perfecting his portrayal.

Ledger locked himself away for weeks getting into character.

"commitment" lol listen, when it comes to acting there are those who do method and those who dont. There are legends out there who laugh at the method acting.

Best example is sir lawrence olivier who laughed in Dustin Hoffmans face when hoffman told him he didnt sleep for days on the set of marathon man, so that he would have the right look and frame of mind.

He laughed and said "My dear boy, why don't you try acting?"

Leto does do method on set, see Dallas Buyers Club interviews. That does not mean he needs two weeks to get into character.
