Ever since it was announced last year, the Suicide Squad movie just revived the spirit of the DC comic book purists including myself.
David Ayer just shared the first cast photo of the Suicide Squad members from the upcoming Suicide Squad film. We get our first official looks at the likes of Will Smith (Deadshot), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Karen Fukuhara (Plastique), and Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg). Most importantly, we have what is our first official look at Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and I have to say that the cast looks badass especially Margot Robbie.
Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will likely be a hotly debated design, since the Joker’s sidekick has gone on to enjoy real solo success as a comic fan-favorite. Bringing such a manic character to life is a film’s worth of challenge in itself, and it seems director David Ayer isn’t looking to reinvent the villain quite as much as The Joker. Pale-skinned, platinum blonde, studded short-shorts and laced heels are all in keeping with her (many) comic looks, but – as is the case for every one of these villains – it’s hard to predict too much from their appearance alone.
As rumors have also mounted of seeing Jared Leto’s Joker in Batman V Superman, and a Ben Affleck cameo in Suicide Squad, the production hasn’t offered many official details or insights – aside from Leto’s new Joker design yet.
