Variety is reporting that Jai Courtney has been in talks for the role of 'Deadshot' in the 'Suicide Squad' movie. According to Variety, Suicide Squad centers around a team of supervillains sent on a literal suicide mission by the government. Variety also reports that Warner Brothers did not comment on the news to confirm it. This casting is significant because the character of 'Deadshot' also plays a major role in the Batman Mythology.

The character of Deadshot is that of a hired assassin, physically altered with cybernetic parts. He is described as one of the top marksmen in DC comics. One of his defining traits in the comics is a death wish, which may indicate him as being unfazed by his mission in the film. This trait may also impact how he interacts with his fellow villains on the team, especially the recently rumored Harley Quinn. 

Jai Courtney will be starring in Terminator Genisyis next year as Kyle Reese. He has previously starred in films such as 'Jack Reacher', A Good Day to Die Hard', and has a starring role in the 'Divergent' series. This role will be a major step as casting in a genre piece, and may serve for his role as Deadshot in future movies if he is contracted for them.

Suicide Squad is currently set for release on August 5, 2016. Justin Marks will be writing the Screenplay, and David Ayer is assigned to directing the movie. It will be the third installment in the DCU after Dawn of Justice, and the first DC movie to be centered directly around villains. As of now, there are no other actors confirmed to play a role in this movie yet besides Margot Robbie.
