Earlier this week, we reported that Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated comic book adaptation Suicide Squad has wrapped production, with stars Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Jai Courtney (Boomerang) stopping by a young girl's lemonade stand to help a worthy cause, on the way to their wrap party. While we wait for more footage and photos to surface as post-production gets under way, director David Ayer shared the official wrap photo from the Toronto set, featuring the entire cast and crew, on his Twitter page this morning. Stars Will Smith (Deadshot), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Karen Fukuhara (Katana), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and the rest can be spotted in the center of the photo. But as per the usual, one very important person is missing. Yes, just like previous cast photos,Jared Leto and his Joker getup are no where to be seen.
We still don't have an official plot rundown for Suicide Squad yet, but we were given plenty of details in the first Suicide Squad trailer that debuted at Comic-Con last month. Viola Davis stars as iconic DC Comics character Amanda Waller, who has assembled a team of the most dangerous villains around to form Task Force X. These villains will be tasked with taking on a number of dangerous missions for Waller, although we don't have many confirmed details of what these missions may be. It's been rumored that one of their assignments is to retrieve Enchantress, who Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) is obtaining in a deal with human traffickers. Of course, those details, and Lex Luthor's presence haven't been confirmed yet.
We do know that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck is reprising his role as Batman, and there have been rumors that he confronts The Joker (Jared Leto) during a massive prison riot right towards the end of the movie. The supporting cast also includes Scott Eastwood, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Adam Beach (Slipknot) and Ray Olubowale (King Shark). Ike Barinholtz, Alex Meraz, Common and Jim Parrack also star, but their roles have not been confirmed yet.
David Ayer is directing Suicide Squad from his own screenplay. This will be the first time the Suicide Squad will be seen on the big screen, but there have been other versions of the team that have appeared in other forms of media. The CW's Arrow brought this villainous team to the small screen in Season 2, and last year's animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham, which went straight to video, featured another version of the team. In the comics, there are several different iterations of Task Force X, with other members including Bane, Killer Frost, Poison Ivy and Count Vertigo.
While we wait for new footage from Suicide Squad, check out the wrap photo and stay tuned for more on this highly-anticipated superhero adventure. The movie hits theaters August 5, 2016, where, for now, it has the entire weekend to itself, with no other new releases opening on that day. Do you think Suicide Squad will open big at the box office next summer? Let us know what you think after checking out the wrap photo.
