Less than a year ago, if you asked anyone what the big DC Comics movie of 2016 was going to be, most would have said Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. But that movie–despite making a metric ton of cash– wasn’t exactly what everyone hope it would be. And that’s me being diplomatic about it.
Instead, it’s looking like David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is going to be the crowd pleasing summer action movie that will really get the ball rolling on the DC Extended Universe, if the trailers released thus far are any indication. Though the film was originally a bit under the radar, once that first trailer featuring Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” debuted, Suicide Squad quickly became the most anticipated comic book film of the summer. Well, once Captain America: Civil War was released anyway.
Now to further whet our appetites for the August 8 release, Warner Brothers has released a new batch of images from the movie, featuring Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (the Joker), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Karen Fukuhara (Katana) Adam Beach (Slipknot) Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag) and Viola Davis as the woman who puts Task Force X together, Amanda Waller, a.k.a. “The Wall”. You can check out the latest batch of images of “the Skwad” as Harley likes to call them, in our gallery below.
