Suicide Squad casting is beginning to come together quite nicely. Variety is reporting that Terminator: Genesys star Jai Courtney is currently in talks to play Deadshot. Will Smith smith has been rumored for a while now, and Variety says that he may be The Flash nemesis Digger Harkness a.k.a. Captain Boomerang. Tom Hardy is also rumored to be up for the role of Rick Flag.

This comes after the news that Warner Bros. is trying to get Jared Leto to sign on as the Joker, and that Margot Robbie has reportedly been cast as Harley Quinn. Jesse Eisenberg will likely reprise his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice role as Lex Luthor.

Based on the DC comic book, the story centers on the team of super villains who are given a chance at redemption by the government. The catch: their mission will probably kill them all.

Suicide Squad is being directed by David Ayer and will hit theaters on August 5, 2016.
