If you haven’t seen Suicide Squad, go and watch the film before reading this article or brace yourselves for the spoilers that are set to feature within this list.
Suicide Squad hit the cinemas on August 1st 2016, receiving mixed reviews as fans around the world left cinemas either highly excited for a potential sequel after enjoying a great first film, or completely stuck at the other end of the spectrum and majorly disappointed, completely let down and annoyed at the fact that they just wasted money to see it.
With a cast of popular actors in its armoury, many people were excited to see Suicide Squad to finally observe Will Smith’s portrayal of the contract killer Deadshot, Jared Leto’s first appearance as the psychotic Joker or even Margot Robbie’s rendition of the lunatic Harley Quinn.
Whether or not you’re a comic book fan, Suicide Squad surely gives you something to enjoy throughout the film; whether that be the gunfights, villains themselves, the little twists of comedy, Margot Robbie… Anyway, from cannibalism to Cara Delevingne’s anger issues, from self-inflicted burns to classified military footage, we’ve decided to offer you up fifteen things you may not have known about Suicide Squad.
15 Shia LaBeouf Could’ve Been in Suicide Squad
Shia LaBeouf was almost in the film. Yes, the crazy (yet equally hilarious) actor was originally lined up to be GQ Edwards, one of Rick Flag’s soldiers, but Warner Bros. came to the conclusion that they weren’t ready to take a gamble on LaBeouf with one of their seemingly mostly anticipated movies. The interest came after David Ayer (the director) wanted LaBeouf for the role after working with him in the film Fury, but Warner Bros. were not convinced. Scott Eastwood was drafted in shortly after LaBeouf and is the GQ Edwards we see instead of the former Transformers star. LaBeouf actually came out to the press to reassure that there were no hard feelings towards the producers saying:
"The character was different initially. Then Will [Smith] came in, and the script was changed a bit. That character and Tom [Hardy’s] character (we’ll get back to him later) were originally written down to build the character of Deadshot up. I don’t think Warner Bros. wanted me. I went in to meet, and they were like, 'Nah, you’re crazy, You’re a good actor, but not this one.' It was a big investment for them."

13 Will Smith’s Crazy Preparation
12 Who Could’ve Been Deadshot
The actor playing Deadshot could have been somebody completely different due to the large amount of actors that were actually considered for the role. We all know Will Smith’s Deadshot as the intelligent yet dangerous contract killer whose only concern is that of his daughter’s well-being - he seems to be the leader of the squad alongside Flag due to his connection to his daughter which, as we see in the film, seems to bring out some heroic like qualities in the character. But, the portrayal of Deadshot may have been completely different had any of these actors been approached.
11 Who Could’ve Been Harley Quinn
The role of Harley Quinn may never have even been handed to Margot Robbie if Warner Bros. had decided on an actress a little earlier. Again, we all know Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn as the psychotic, dangerous "queen" who, alongside her "king" the Joker, runs the dark side of Gotham, murdering anybody who stands in her and their way. Had one of the following actresses got the role, could we have seen a different twist to Harley Quinn’s character?

1 Horniest Cast
Now, Will Smith has featured in a lot of films. Like. A LOT of films. He’s worked with so many big stars and must’ve worked with hundreds of people within countless casts, but the Suicide Squad cast gains a certain accolade from him. From a quote via Comic Book.com:
"I’ve worked with a lot of casts, and I have to say that this is the horniest group I’ve ever worked with, without question. This is the horniest cast I’ve ever worked with."
So there you have it, the Suicide Squad cast is the horniest that big time movie star Will Smith has ever worked with. Now, nobody is completely sure what he means exactly or how the cast is the horniest, but maybe it could be down to Leto sending his fellow actors sex toys, used condoms and/or p*rn magazines? I don’t know, maybe it could be that...
