Will Smith has revealed his motivation for playing Deadshot in Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad' Cast Member Will Smith Reveals Motivation For Movie's Deadshot Character. It's a character that hasn't really been explored in cinema," Smith told ComingSoon.net. "I get to design it and be a part of creating the first round of Deadshot in the history of cinema." He added, "It's a really great opportunity to work with a really great ensemble. It was perfectly cast. It's an insane group of super actor villains." Director David Ayer also drew Smith to the role. "It's David Ayer's tonal quality," he said. "It's how he thinks and how he moves and how he sees the world." "These kinds of movies are a different breed," Smith added.

"The huge, gigantic tent poles that are designed to be global behemoths. I wanted to do something like that with David Ayer, who is a director that cares only about character. Every single aspect and detail of the character playing into that gigantic box for me is what makes this one really special." Ayer said recently that good guys are "kinda boring." "They're always going to do the right thing," he told USA Today. "When you're dealing with the baddies, it's easy to get ahead of the audience and invert expectations."

Much of the film's hype surrounds Jared Leto's Joker, who Leto recently said is "kind of a shaman." "It's a very intoxicating role to take on," he told Den of Geek. "You have permission to break rules and to challenge yourself and anyone around you in a really unique way." "We knew we had to strike new ground," Leto explained. "There had been such great work that we knew we had to go in a different direction. So you had a kind of direction from the very beginning, knowing that you can't go that way, so you have to head this way. That was really helpful. But the Joker is fantastic because there are no rules. The Joker operates from instinct." "Suicide Squad" hits theaters Aug. 4.
