Hey guys! So I’m sure by now you know how much I love book to movie adaptations. But do you know how much I love comic book movies too? I’m kind of obsessed. And with the recent release of some seriously awesome ones (i.e. Deadpool especially), I’m really looking forward to the upcoming releases of Captain America: Civil War (May 6) and Suicide Squad (August 5). Last night on the MTV Movie Awards, the cast of Suicide Squad shared the brand-new trailer for the movie and WOAH YES GIVE IT TO ME NOW. I’m all heart eyes over here, and I want you to be too. I’m really digging Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, which I wasn’t really expecting, and Jared Leto is definitely growing on me more and more as the Joker (I think he’s an incredible actor but who can follow Heath Ledger?). So I’m sharing the new trailer below! Let me know what you think in the comments.
What do you think of the new trailer? Also, check out how cool the movie poster is!
Alright, so here I was la-di-da-ing down my Facebook timeline when I come across THIS ARTICLE that says Jared FREAKING Leto is going to be the Joker in Suicide Squad. Yes, I had a minor freak out and read the article and a couple others like five times each. I, personally, think he’s going to do a great job. I think he’s an incredible actor and I’m seriously looking forward to seeing that film. Not sure how I feel about Will Smith as Deadshot, but I’m willing to give it a shot. And Cara Delevingne is going to go from Margo Roth Spiegelman in the film adaptation of John Green’s Paper Towns to Enchantress in Suicide Squad. She’s obviously got the best agent ever. I can’t wait to see her in both – mostly because I really want to see both, not necessarily because she’s in it. Actually, I’ve never seen her in anything so I don’t know if she’s good.
Here’s the official cast/character list taken from the Variety article:
Jared Leto – The Joker
Will Smith – Deadshot
Tom Hardy – Rick Flag
Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn
Jai Courtney – Boomerang
Cara Delevingne – Enchantress
The movie is set to release August 5, 2016.
So what do you guys think about this? Have you read any of the Suicide Squad comics? What do you think about the actors cast? Tell me your thoughts in the comments!
