More ‘Suicide Squad’ Photos Reveal the Full Rogues Gallery
Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly revealed four new covers featuring the cast of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, which has taken over the latest edition of the magazine. As you probably assumed, that was just the tip of the iceberg, as even more new photos have arrived showing off the full rogues gallery (along with Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller) from the highly-anticipated anti-hero team-up.
You can check out the complete series of character portraits above courtesy of EW, and while they don’t show us any new scenes or reveal anything super crazy, they do give us a closer look at each of the villains: Aside from Davis, we have Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Jared Leto’s Joker, Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag, Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez’s Diablo, Adam Beach’s Slipknot and Karen Fukuhara’s Katana.
A much longer plot description arrived yesterday along with those magazine covers, and it revealed that Enchantress is the first villain recruited by Amanda Waller to form Task Force X. We still don’t know who (or what) they’re up against, but we have seen glimpses of mysterious beings with eyes covering their heads — which Ayer has described as the “eyes of the adversary.”
The upcoming film also stars Ike Barinholtz and Scott Eastwood, and features an appearance from Ben Affleck’s Batman. Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5.
