Suicide Squad Photos Show Katana, El Diablo & Captain Boomerang
Following the new photos from Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad that debuted earlier today, even more images have arrived from this superhero adaptation. The images come from the latest issue of Empire Magazine, and give us a better look at Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman) and Slipknot (Adam Beach). If that wasn't enough, we also have new shots of Deadshot (Will Smith) and The Joker (Jared Leto).
With this slew of new photos arriving over the past few days, hopefully this is a sign that we may finally get a second trailer for Suicide Squad, which wrapped production back in August. The first trailer was unveiled during Warner Bros.' Comic Con panel, and after it leaked online right away, the footage was officially released shortly thereafter. With post-production in full swing, it's possible that we may get a second full trailer soon, or perhaps by the end of this year.
Ever since this star-studded production was announced, most of the fans have been focused on Jared Leto's The Joker, Will Smith's Deadshot and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. These photos help remind fans about how large and diverse this team of villains really is, who are all forced together by Viola Davis' Amanda Waller. We still don't have any official plot details yet, but there have been plenty of juicy rumors over the past few months to tide us over.
Although we didn't see much of him in the first trailer, Rick Flagg is said to be the leader of this squad, assembled by Amanda Waller, although the details of their missions still aren't clear yet. We do know that Batman (Ben Affleck) will show up at some point, since we saw this iconic character riding atop The Joker's car in the trailer and numerous videos from the Toronto set. There have been rumors that The Joker is responsible for the death of Batman's sidekick Robin, as evidenced in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer where Robin's suit is defaced with a message presumably scrawled by The Joker himself. There is also a rumor that The Joker and Batman may square off during a massive prison riot at the end of the movie.
David Ayer directs from his own screenplay, with a supporting cast that includes Cara Delevingne, Scott Eastwood, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Ray Olubowale, Alex Meraz, Jim Parrack and Common. Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5, 2016, just a few months after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters next March. Check out the latest photos, and stay tuned for any updates about Suicide Squad.
