We've been holding our breath to see what will happen in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie directed by David Ayer. We got a little taste last April with the release of the first image of Jared Leto's interpretation of the Joker. Then, we were introduced to the entire Squad at the beginning of the summer. Finally, towards the end of summer, we got our first trailer for one of the most anticipated movies of 2016. Now, in the next issue of Empire, we get a more in-depth look at the Suicide Squad and Gotham's new Clown Prince of Crime on the cover.
The First Appearance of Harley's Puddin'
You can't help but get a smile across your face when you first see this cover. This upcoming piece in Empire written by Nick De Semlyen, who got to interview Leto about his method acting and just how deep into the role he went:
"There was definitely a period of...detachment. I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn't imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing those psychological games. But at the same time it was very painful, like giving birth out of my prick hole."
He might give us a worthy Joker that succeeds Heath Ledger Oscar-Worthy performance, especially after all of the hell he put the rest of the cast through, like sending Will Smith bullets while he was playing Deadshot, and sending his upcoming love interest Margot Robbie romantic letters and a pet rat,
The upcoming Empire article also shows us some of the scenes from Suicide Squad.
Amanda Waller Forming Task Force X
This image shows Amanda Waller, played by Viola Davis, convincing her colleagues that Arkham inmates are a viable option for protecting the public.
The Squad is in action! Featuring Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinsman as Rick Flagg, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.
One Hell of a First Date...
This is one scene Harley Quinn fans have been waiting for since 1999. Although this scene probably doesn't follow Harley's first backstory featured in Paul Dini's 'Mad Love', fans of this deadly duo can't wait to see what Leto and Robbie bring to their roles.
Behind the Scenes
Who wouldn't want to Rev this Harley?
One of the most entrancing scenes from the Comic Con Suicide Squad trailer had to be Harley Quinn performing gymnastics on silks in her cell at Arkham.
Enchantress: A Possible Antagonist to the Suicide Squad
Its been reported that Antigon will be the main antagonist of the Suicide Squad, but that doesn't mean there can't have multiple shots taken at them. In a lot of the group pictures of the Suicide Squad, Enchantress hasn't been featured. Does that mean she's a threat to them for part of the movie? We can only wait and see.
The World's Greatest Assassin
Featured in multiple iterations in the Suicide Squad comics, and a possible lover interest for Harley, Will Smith can breathe life in some of the grittiest characters. Hopefully, he'll keep it up for this feared villain.
Though Suicide Squad is less than a year away, any piece of information about it will make fans rave. Suicide Squad will hit theaters August 5, 2016
