*The* Suicide Squad Casting

This weekend, Suicide Squad is trying again, as The Suicide Squad. I’m a little nervous for this movie, because if you remember the first one, the trailers were AMAZING, and then the film was a huge letdown. Now, as we try again, the trailers are once again AMAZING, and I’m reminded that “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.” Are we about to feel like fools, or is this going to be the super fun, super crazy romp we were hoping for the first time? Well, at the very least, this movie has a huge recognizable cast, with 18 familiar faces, probably making this the longest Casting article I’ve done.
