Last night David Ayer posted an image on Twitter of the cast of his upcoming DC super-villain team-up, Suicide Squad. They were all in character and looking pretty dark and bad ass. The images we got this weekend come just a week after an image of the new version of The Joker played by Jared Leto hit the internet and caused quite a bit of debate about whether or not this is a good new look. Jared Leto’s version of The Joker will of course appear in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, he isn’t present in this image, the rest of Task Force X are:
We have Margot Robbie in the role of the beautiful and dangerous Harley Quinn. Will Smith is there too looking like a bad ass as Floyd Lawton otherwise known as Deadshot. Jai Courtney is there as Captain Boomerang as is Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg. Karen Fukuhara plays Katana and can be seen crouching in this picture, ready to strike. Enchantress looks pretty creepy in this. We also have Killer Croc, I really like the way they have styled him in this, he looks like a street fighting version of some of the more played down incarnations of the character. He looks genuinely threatening but very cool as well.
We also got a solo image of Deadshot giving us a better idea of what the marksman will look like in action. This image features the full face mask and trademark eye piece. Deadshot is a character I really enjoy in the TV show Arrow so it should be interesting to get another version of the character played by the fantastic Will Smith.
More and more excitement is building up for Suicide Squad the more images and information is released. However, lets not get too excited too early as it is scheduled for release in August 2016. That is quite a wait, in the mean time just savour every appearance the Suicide Squad make in the TV universe on shows like Arrow and The Flash.
