And Just Like That, Here’s the Suicide Squad!

Sunday had a big surprise for everybody: the first cast pic of the Suicide Squad! Everybody’s in costume!

From left, we’ve got Slipknot, Captain Boomerang, Enchantress, Katana, Rick Flagg, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Croc and El Diablo. They’re also all played by cool actors, but I’ve only got so many fingers for typing.

My initial reaction was shock, because there’s a whole lot to take in when you first see this picture. Then once you start looking it over, there’s a lot to like. Katana, Killer Croc, Boomerang and especially Deadshot look great. Slipknot and Diablo are clearly just there as cannon fodder. And Harley Quinn looks…OK, she looks OK.

Speaking of Deadshot, played by Will Smith, here we have a solo shot with the mask and everything!

I am definitely down for Will Smith to kick all kinds of butt in this movie.

Though I’m disappointed that Joker isn’t in this picture. I’ve been hoping beyond hope that Joker was actually a member of Task Force X and not some Hannibal Lecter guy in a cell. But we’ll see!

  1. My guess would be that Joker is the antagonist in the film, perhaps much like he was in Assault on Arkham.

    • I think that’s what will happen too. DC’s not about to just throw their new Joker on a supervillain team like it’s an episode of Young Justice or Batman: the Brave and the Bold. As you can see with Scott Snyder on Batman, DC is always going to make Joker a big deal.

  2. What’s with their need to put writing on almost everyone in this movie?

    Oh well, Harley’s hot.
