Warner Bros. Courting Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and Margot Robbie for Suicide Squad http://collider.com/suicide-squad-will-smith-ryan-gosling/ The superhero news just keeps on coming today. Earlier this morning, Warner Bros. unveiled its full slate of DC Comics adaptations through the year 2020. One of the more surprising revelations was that the superhero pic set to follow the release of the sure-to-be-massive Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be Suicide Squad, with Fury and End of Watch helmer David Ayer set to direct. That release date is set for August 5, 2016, and so as Ayer gets to work on the script, the studio is starting to think about casting—and boy are they aiming high. The actors that are reportedly being courted to lead this new DC film are Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Tom Hardy.
