I think the casting is very strong. Loved most choices. Not sure who Cara Delevingne but i'll give her the benefit of doubt. And Will Smith is the wrong race but i feel like i can let that slide for a character like Floyd Lawton.

This impressed me more than anything I've seen in the last decade of DC's weird casting choices. There are big stars here, but not so big that typecasting becomes a pitfall and no one here that isn't flexible.

It's amazing that Leto goes up against Ledger's incredibly big shoes and got the positive reception he's getting...which almost worries me if it's TOO easy of a choice so as to make the Joker too one-note among so many other deeper characters.

That said, the Suicide Squad has something the Justice League doesn't: no one's a goodie two-shoes here. The Squad has the grit and shades of grey that the JLA can never have as gung-ho powerhouses, and if that's what Lego's Joker is going to be, than I'm all for it.
