By Muuka Muyumba

* Jim Parrack is reportedly playing Deathstroke, according to Scooper Supreme El Mayimbe at Latino-Review who reported that original target Joe Manganiello dropped out. So, we trade one True Blood actor for another.

* Ike Barinholtz will play Dr. Hugo Strange and Adam Beach is rumored to be Ravan.

Suicide Squad assembles with a few more new castmembers not previously revealed. A photo posted by director David Ayer (Fury) shows the cast together for an apparent read-through of the script with actors Joel Kinnaman (Robo-Cop), Will Smith (Bad Boys), Adawale Akinnouye-Agbaje (Oz), Jay Hernandez (Hostel), Karen FukuharaMargot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street), Jai Courtney (Jack Reacher), Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder), Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns), as well as new actors including Adam Beach (Flags of Our Father), Jim Parrack (True Blood), and Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project).

A secret government agency run by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), named A.R.G.U.S creates a task force comprised of super villains. They are called the Suicide Squad because sometimes they don’t come back. They are assigned to execute dangerous tasks in exchange for shorter prison sentences.

Suicide Squad’s cast was not complete though because we don’t see Jared Leto as the Joker, Raymond Olubawale as King Shark, nor Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.

So, for the record Suicide Squad will being the most DC characters we’ve ever seen on screen at one time: Rick Flagg (Kinnaman), Deadshot (Smith), Killer Croc (Agbaje), Plastique (Fukuhara), Captain Boomerang (Courtney), Harley Quinn (Robbie), Enchantress (Delevingne), and Amanda Waller. That’s a lot of goodness people! Can’t wait.

Suicide Squad debuts in theaters on August 5, 2016.
