As we all know by now, Will Smith and Margot Robbie have joined David Ayer’s Suicide Squad as Deadshot and Harley Quinn and now the two are talking about where they are at with that right now…

Talking to USA Today, the duo were asked about the news that Tom Hardy dropped out of his role as Rick Flagg and if it had an impact: “We’ve still got to get it right,” said Smith.

Robbie adds: “This happens all the time. People act like, ‘Oh my god, the movie must be ending!’ It’s just the deal with movies.”

But what about playing these bigger than life characters in a movie that will be deeply, deeply scrutinised?: “A lot of the characters haven’t been portrayed before so it’s a pretty big undertaking,” says Robbie.

“And it’s a big undertaking for the people who are going to play the characters who have been played, like the Joker [Jared Leto]. It’s big shoes to fill.”

Have they started training for their super-villain roles?: “Oh god yes,” says Smith, “I started before Christmas. No carbs on Christmas! It was terrible.”

Robbie pipes up: “Oh, I ate everything on Christmas. I’m not strong though. To do all your own stunts you have to be so strong.”

We reckon Robbie looks like she’d in just perfect condition for the role. Ahem.

David Ayer is rumoured to begin shooting on April 13th.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
