Now that the first official look at David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is available, we’ve pulled a collection of over 100 images together for you to take a peek at. The excellent trailer certainly offered a look at the dynamic framing, character design, and action sequences featured in the latest Warner Bros. film, but a closer look reveals more questions than answers.
First and foremost, these images reveal great looks at Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, and Adam Beach as Slipknot. With the exception of Enchantress (who looks like a character from Ong-bak 3), the rest of these villains look pretty solid.
As for the questions, I’ve got quite a few. Some of them likely won’t be answered until the film opens next August, but I’m hoping the more knowledgeable comic book fans among you might answer some.
- Will we get to see Killer Croc’s lair? If you look closely at the image in the underground cavern, it looks like there’s an animal skull off to the side, perhaps remnants of Croc’s former meal. But since that looks like Delevingne in the picture, I’m assuming it’s a scene from Enchantress’s origin.
- What’s up with the timeline? Judging from glimpses of some of these characters who appear in what seem to be before/after shots, I’m wondering if we’ll get flashbacks to a time before they went to prison and joined the Squad.
- Relatedly, will we get a Haley Quinn origin story? It certainly looks like we’ll see her progress from psychiatrist to psychopath.
- And last but not least, what is up with these other weird costumed villains? Eyeball, Goat-Head, Felt Batman, Panda … are these other characters or just random hoods?
