DC Comics Deadshot 1

The 'A Good Day to Die Hard' actor is said to be in talks to play the assassin for hire.

Some more casting news has appeared online surrounding the DC Comics and Warner Bros. Suicide Squad movie due in 2016. The latest report from Variety reveals that Australian actor Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) is in the running for the role of Deadshot.

Deadshot doesn't have any kind of superhuman powers, but his skills make him a brilliantly-deadly assassin for hire.

Suicide Squad is about a group of DC villains that are forced into joining together by the U.S. government to take on highly dangerous missions.

Variety also says that Tom Hardy, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto remain in talks for roles in the movie, due for release on 5th August 2016.

A few days ago it emerged that Leto and Robbie are said to take on the roles of The Joker and Harley Quinn in the David Ayer (Fury) directed Suicide Squad movie.
