Have a closer look at the Suicide Squad, the elite team of super-villains forced to work together on a super secret government mission.
They might be the latest addition to the DC Comics universe, but it’s pretty clear these guys won’t be following in the Avengers’ footsteps.
They are a highly dangerous band of criminals allowed out of their high-security cells only to carry out black ops missions, in return for reduced jail time. And this snap from director David Ayer shows just how threatening the rag-tag bunch of wrong-doers can be.
We’ve got Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Deadshot (Will Smith) and Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney). One person you don’t see in this new snap is Ben Affleck, who is set to make an appearance in the movie as Batman. Details have been scarce so far, but director Ayer did tease this week that he “made him fight.”
“He’s awesome (as Batman)…. You really sense that but for the grace of God he himself would be doing some really foul stuff out in the world,” he told USA Today.
Suicide Squad also stars Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Viola Davis and Joel Kinnaman as government agents tasked with keeping the criminals in check.
The film will be released in 5th August 2016
