Update (6:04PM): David Ayer has also released an official photo of Will Smith’s Deadshot with his signature mask and eyepiece.
We’ve seen Jared Leto’s Joker. We’ve seen leaked set photos of Will Smith’s Deadshot in civilian wear. Now we have our first official look at the entire Suicide Squad, courtesy of director David Ayer, who tweeted out a photo earlier today.
From left to right, we see Adam Beach (Slipknot), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Karen Fukuhara (Katana), Cara Delevigne (Enchantress), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Will Smith (Deadshot), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), and Jay Hernandez (El Diablo). That’s a meaty cast right there, but given the name of the film and the nature of what Task Force X does, I imagine more than a couple of them will be exiting stage left in bodybags by the time the end credits roll.
After the hullabaloo surrounding Jared Leto’s Joker, I have to say that I am very much on board with Suicide Squad. Ayer clearly has an aesthetic all of his own in mind, and I appreciate that he is getting out ahead of the speculation and laying it all out there.
Suicide Squad opens in theaters on August 5, 2016.
What do you think of their look? Let us know in the comments below.
