19th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards - Backstage And AudienceUPDATE: "Suicide Squad" studio Warner Bros. has confirmed Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Tom Hardy as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.

"The Suicide Squad" is shaping up.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie, and Jai Courtney are in final talks to join the DC Comics movie, which will be directed by David Ayer ("Fury").

The four actors have been part of the casting rumor mill, but it seems to be a nearly done deal that they will star as imprisoned superhero villains recruited to undertake government missions in exchange for their freedom.

Though THR doesn't confirm which characters they will be playing, signs point to Leto playing The Joker, Hardy as Rick Flagg, Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Courtney as Boomerang.

"The Suicide Squad" is set to begin filming in April in Toronto.

Editor's note: We previously reported that Courtney was in line to play Deadshot, but it turns out he'll play Boomerang.
