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!
