While everything seems to be moving quickly for Warner Bros. and their superhero slate, it looks like the movie that follows their upcoming Batman and Superman team-up could have a cast in place soon.
Deadline reported on Friday that three of the rumored picks by the studio for roles including Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and Margot Robbie are just about locked in to join the film. It adds that Ryan Gosling is still weighing his options.
Smith, Hardy, and Robbie were first named on Thursday as the top picks by the studio to take on the roles in their upcoming Suicide Squad adaptation directed by Fury's David Ayer. Deadline adds that Robbie is the most for-sure to join as the actress is looking for a franchise to latch on to with her recent rise to fame.
Smith has been struggling with the box office results lately and could be looking to jump on the superhero train as a way to bring his star power back up. It will also help with marketing this movie to have a sure-fire draw like him attached to the film.
Hardy is a little more uncertain than the rest as he recently was linked to both Marvel's Doctor Strange in the main role, and the title role in Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse. But Suicide Squad reunites him with the studio of his next blockbuster, Mad Max, and gives him a franchise to help start.
Gosling is still unsure if he wants to join this movie with the actor also reportedly looking at a Houdini franchise and Doctor Strange as other possibilities to get involved with.
Suicide Squad is currently set to be released on August 6, 2016.
