Director David Ayer has shared a new picture of some of the Suicide Squad members on Twitter , all in their on-screen characters. Shared with just Ayer’s preferred hashtag for the superhero project — #Skwad — the new image features a somewhat desperate looking group shot of the cast, said The Hollywood Reporter.
The photo includes a panicked Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), concerned Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) and Deadshot (Will Smith), while Karen Fukuhara’s Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Killer Croc and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn look far more ready for action.
Also appearing in the movie are Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis and Jared Leto, who plays Batman villain The Joker; all three played big roles in the first footage released from the movie. Ben Affleck’s Batman is also reported to make an appearance in the movie.
Director David Ayer shared his enthusiasm for the day that Affleck came to set to film his brief role in the film as the Squad’s caped nemesis. “We made him fight,” Ayer said. “He’s awesome (as Batman)…. You really sense that but for the grace of God he himself would be doing some really foul stuff out in the world.”
Written and directed by Ayer, Suicide Squad will be released August 5.
