Suicide Squad: Jared Leto & Margot Robbie as Joker and Harley Quinn

Joker and Harley Quinn DC Comics 1

Reports suggest DC's Suicide Squad movie is looking to cast Jared Leto as Joker and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

A few weeks back we reported on the recently-announced DC movie - Suicide Squad - and how it was close to signing the likes of Tom Hardy and Will Smith for roles, as well as Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street). In a new report from Collider, they say that the role of Harley Quinn has been taken by The Wolf of Wall Street actress.

Previous reports on the movie from Latino Review suggest that the actual Suicide Squad would be made up of the following villains: Blockbuster, Multiplex, Jaculi, Mindboggler, Harkness, Vixen, and finally, Deadshot.

It also emerged this weekend that Jared Leto (Requiem for a Dream/frontman of 30 Seconds to Mars) was apparently being tapped up to play The Joker in the Suicide Squad movie. This would suggest that the movie will involve additional prominent DC Universe characters, apart from the main Suicide Squad members.

Suicide Squad is being directed by David Ayer (Fury) and will be released on 5th August 2016.
