Here we have assembled Slipknot (Adam Beach), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Deadshot (Will Smith), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and El Diablo (Jay Hernandez). The noticeable absentees from the cast are Jared Leto (The Joker), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Raymond Olubowale (King Shark), Common, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Jim Parrack.
Other pictures have been dropping online since then, such as Will Smith wearing the mask for Deadshot and apparent leaked photos from the set in Vancouver have been dropped, including a look at Margot Robbie in her Harley Quinn costume.
In terms of the first official photo goes for the cast (well, most of) it’s definitely got me excited and interested in how these characters are handled, particularly Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc and now Katana, which I had no idea was in it until the release of this image. I know nothing about either Slipknot or El Diablo so just think they’ll be the ones that’ll bite the dust come the end of the film, just an initial impression I get when I look at this photo. The images of the behind the scenes shoot of Margot Robbie in Harley Quinn mode has been pretty positive from what I’ve seen and it’ll be interesting to see what the character is like on the big screen. So for the image alone it’s a buy for me.
Suicide Squad is set for a cinematic release in August 2016.
