David Ayer has been a busy man on twitter. The Suicide Squad director started off a few weeks ago by tweeting out the picture of the table read. Then he followed it up with the picture of Jared Leto in the vain of the Killing Joke. He then recently released the full photo of the Joker, tattoos and all. Now Ayer has finally given us a full look of the squad and all of their costumes all in one photo. Thank you David Ayers!
Ayers released the photo below on twitter with the caption “Task Force X assembled and Ready #SuicideSquad”
Here is the cast pictured above: Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El DIablo, and Adam Beach as Slipknot.
Ayer also tweeted a full costume shot of Will Smith as Deadshot.
There will undoubtedly be a divisive reaction to this photo. There will be a lot of DC fans that love it, and probably an equal amount that do not. Bro Knows certainly has our own reactions to the photo. Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn is amazing! Not surprising, she looks exactly how we would want her to look. Will Smith look really cool as Deadshot, from the bald head to the suit, he looks the part and has a badass feel. Kinnaman as Flagg also looks pretty cool. Maybe not anything special, but if you’ve seen comicbook Flagg then it makes sense.Fukuhara and hernandez as Katana and El Diablo are also solid.
It’s not all a win though. Sure the three main characters in the photo are pretty cool, but some of the lesser characters aren’t so great. Jai Courtney’s Boomerang looks dumb. Courtney himself seemed like a bad casting as is and now the costume just beefs up some of the cheesy-ness. Killer Croc and Slipknot are pretty terrible. Croc looks nothing like the source material and slipknot just looks strange with weird looking cornrows. Currently the jury is still out on Delevigne as The Enchantress, we don’t know much about the character admittedly so maybe it’s perfect!
All in all the photo is pretty cool, but what do you guys out in Bro Nation think? You excited for the upcoming Suicide Squad? Drop a comment and let’s start a discussion.
