CBMB: WB/DC Casting Rumors Abound

By Muuka Muyumba

Ryan Gosling is rumored to be sought after by WB for the David Ayers-led Suicide Squad, joining a list of “A-List” actors including Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Tom Hardy.


Warner Bros, which this week identified the DC Comics property Suicide Squad as one of its priority projects that will be released in 2016, is apparently moving aggressively on the film as a direct counter to Marvel’s own strange superhero movie Guardians of the Galaxy. Where Marvel used lesser known actors, aside from Zoe Saldana, WB is pushing hard to get “top-of-the-shortlist” actors. Deadline is reporting that both Smith and Hardy are circling the film and are close to signing on.

Deadline also reports that Robbie is most likely a lock for a role in the film as she has dropped out of contention for the female lead of Ghost in the Shell–oddly enough, replaced by Marvelite Scarlett Johansson.

No word on any of the roles that these actors may play. The report also does not mention whether they are chasing an A-Lister for the crucial role of Amanda Waller, who runs the Suicide Squad with an iron-fist for A.R.G.U.S.
