You have NO IDEA how excited I am!
In case you aren’t aware, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn’t the only big DC Comics movie coming out next year. That other film coming out in 2016 is called Suicide Squad. Now, for those whom still don’t know, here is a quick run down. Suicide Squad is a team of super villains forced by the government to carry out life threatening tasks. If they don’t play ball, they will be killed. Usually by a bomb implant in their necks. If you want a better understanding, I’d recommend the awesome Batman: Assault on Arkham movie. Or The Suicide Squad episodes of Arrow. I’d recommend the former more than the latter, but both are solid! I’ve always loved the team, and the stories are usually a lot of fun and crazy. To have a film being made about them, written and directed by David Ayer, is exciting. Now! One thing I enjoy about Ayer is he loves to share with his fans! He keeps us updated on what is currently going on during his film productions. So, we’ve been seeing step by step of Ayer’s approach to Suicide Squad. The more I saw, the more excited I became.
Now, we are finally at the filming stage! Which means Ayer has begun to share what each character will look like in the film! So, long story short….I give you The Suicide Squad! I am over the moon, people! These character’s look amazing, and I couldn’t be happier about whom they got to play each one! Going from left to right we have Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn (my favorite!), Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. Yea. This is awesome. Now I just can’t wait for the first trailer to hit the net! Now, before I go, there is one more thing I should discuss. I didn’t get the chance to speak of it during it’s actual release. At the time I was at C2E2 in Chicago, but I have time to do it now.
There is a big cast member/character missing from this Image. Mainly because he isn’t a member of the Suicide Squad, but also because we already saw him last weekend. I’m obviously speaking of Jared Leto as The Joker. The image has seemed to divide the fans up. Some really enjoy it. Others see it as Leto joining the ICP crowd. For me, I gotta say I’m a fan. The Joker has had some radical looks in his life. Once he got shot in the head and didn’t die. So he was stuck with a nasty scar in the middle of his forehead. More recently, He had to wear his own face. Yea. Joker used wires and belts to strap his own face to his head. So, if I can get used to those looks, Tattoos and capped teeth won’t bug me. Even if the rumors are true, and this isn’t the actual Joker look. Either way, I really like this look, and I can’t wait to see Leto’s performance! I will say this, though. I am iffy on the “Damaged” tattoo on his head. Seems kind of ironic. Maybe that’s the point. Who knows. Anyway, let us know what you think of these reveals in the comments!
