Finally, the Suicide Squad is here!!
Team Force X appear for the first time in their costume in the first full cast photo. David Ayer,the film’s director, posted this first official image of the entire cast in their costume.
From left to right, we see Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara down in the front as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. Also, David Ayer gave us a close shot of Will Smith’s Deadshot,with his assassin’s mask and eyepiece.
But missing from the photo is our Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker who is being played by *Oscar Winner* Jared Leto,who David Ayer revealed last week on his twitter page. This might be because he’s not a proper part of the Suicide Squad as the movie may be able to put him in a more unique position fitting his status as one of the greatest DC villains of all time. Also, missing from the photo is Amanda Waller, who is being played by Viola Davis.
This movie is surely an odd choice for introducing Batman’s arch enemy into the DC Cinematic Universe, but if David Ayer and the creative team do their job perfectly, this may be one of the most unique Joker role(s) audiences will ever see!
For those not familiar, the Suicide Squad is a group of incarcerated supervillains who perform secret missions for the U.S. government in exchange for reduced prison sentences. We can also expect cameos from our Batman and Lex Luthor, who are being played by Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg respectively, in order to interconnect the DC Cinematic Universe.
Suicide Squad will be hitting the big screen on August 5, 2016. Are you folks looking forward to it? Let us know in the comments section below. 😀
