It all started with the release of this picture of Jared Leto's joker on the internet:
Followed by this picture of the whole squad (without the Joker of course):
to create bigger anticipation for the newest addition to the DC cinematic universe; The Suicide Squad.
The movie was announced to be released on August 5th, 2016 after the release of DC's other highly anticipated movie: Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. The first official look of the Batman v.s Superman movie was shown through youtube and other sources of media, and different looks of the movie was seen.
Back to Suicide Squad:
For the photo of the joker, many different reactions were held by people all over the internet ranging form denial:
to a video of Jack Nicholson (the former and beloved Mr.J):
After the release of the photos, the internet was hyped enough about the movie itself. There have been speculations to whether the tattooed ghetto-ish joker was a troll from DC, but the validity of the picture is yet to be confirmed. We'll just have to wait and see until they release the trailer. Actor/Singer Jared Leto (the new Joker) and director David Ayer had been teasing bits and pieces of the movie from time to time on their social media accounts (mainly twitter and instagram). Here you can see Jared Leto teasing his Joker voice during one of his concerts:
Other than the Joker himself, fans have also been excited for the big screen debut of, you guessed it, Ms. Harleen Quinzel a.k.a. Harley Quinn. Harley Quinn has been one of the most beloved Batman villains throughout the years, and since the announcement of the movie, Harley Quinn was one of the most anticipated characters. There have been several photos (and some videos) on the internet giving fans a first peek at Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. And personally, with what I see, I couldn't be more pleased. The photos released not too many days ago also hinted at an on-screen chemistry between Deadshot and Harley Quinn.
Other characters (such as Katana) were spotted on the set as well:
Overall I am more than pleased - well pleased is a very WEAK word to describe my feelings towards this movie- to see the progress of this movie. Trust me, there are so many more images out there on the internet (posted by both fans and officials) of the movie that will get you even more hyped for it. I'm honestly so glad that they seem to be keeping things in line with the comics without going off on strange tangents (like book/comicbook based movies tend to do). As for the Joker... I have mixed feelings about it at this point; Jared Leto's Joker voice is what I really want to hear. (clearly) (cause honestly... who doesnt?) There are even rumors of Batman being part of this movie. (well imbd confirmed it sorta)
Anyways the conclusion is that:
1. This movie will be awesome
2. Harley Quinn, The Joker, and every other member of the suicide squad will be awesome
3. I can't wait to see the teaser trailer (which, i hope, wont be too far away in the future)
