The movie Suicide Squad for the DC Extended Universe is quite polarizing in the film industry. Critics destroyed the movie for the many flaws and a decent percent of viewers strongly disliked it as well. However, it did find major success raking in $746 million internationally at the box office. The story was extremely unique with a group of villains becoming anti-heroes as they tried to work together to save the day.
Suicide Squad’s cast featured many big names like Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto hoping to add another iconic role to their respective careers. The lack of positive reaction did hurt the overall lasting image of the movie, but the box office success created a few spin-off series.

Many people will not instantly recognize Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje for his role in Suicide Squad. This is because he mostly voiced the CGI character of Killer Croc.
The comedic timing of Adewale made the Killer Croc character a strong addition to the movie. Adewale’s career is quite respected with many roles, including a standout performance in the drama series Lost. The net worth of Adewale is $3 million as a solid but not superstar actor in Hollywood.
Captain Boomerang was one of the standout characters in Suicide Squad that many argued stole most of the scenes he appeared in. The combination of the comedic element and dangerous character saw Jai Courtney do a great job showcasing Boomerang to the audience.
Courtney has a successful career with consistent roles in movies and television shows over most of the past decade. Suicide Squad definitely added to his appeal with an impressive net worth of $3 million. Courtney is still young enough to earn important roles that will improve that number.

Robbie has been in hit films like Wolf of Wall Street, I, Tonya and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood to build up her reputation as a top actress. The net worth of Robbie is going to spike dramatically in the near future. Expect her to jump up this list within the next year or two.
Viola Davis is one of the most respected leading actresses in Hollywood. The role in Suicide Squad added more credibility to the overall cast. Davis played the character Amanda Waller as a government official that puts the plan in motion to make the Suicide Squad work together.
Waller was not technically part of the Suicide Squad group, but her role in uniting them gives her a spot her. The success of Davis in many movies and television shows sees her with an impressive $12 million net worth. Much like Margot Robbie, this figure will likely grow since her star power continues to rise in Hollywood.

Leto’s portrayal of The Joker was one of the more criticized aspects of the movie. It didn’t hurt his standing in Hollywood since his net worth is still an incredible $90 million.
The highest net worth of any Suicide Squad cast member is Will Smith by a large margin. Smith has been a top name in the entertainment industry since the early 90s. The success with the television series Fresh Prince of Bel-Air along with his music career built up his name value.
Once Fresh Prince ended, Smith became one of the top leading men in Hollywood with his immense star power.
