Following IMAX's colorful breakfast-inspired teaser poster this morning, we now have 11 more Suicide Squad character one-sheets featuring the worst of the worst from Belle Reve. The usual suspects are all accounted for, with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and Jared Leto's Joker leading this pack of raving lunatics. We also get colorful new looks at Will Smith as Deadshot, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Adam Beach as Slipknot and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc.
Last week, we finally got confirmation as to who contributed songs to the upcoming soundtrack, which will be in stores the same week the movie hits theaters. Twenty One Pilots has the lead single with 'Heathens', which is expected to drop a music video soon. And Jared Leto suited back up as The Joker for the second single 'Purple Lamborghini', coming from Skrillex & Rick Ross. Though, it should be noted that The Joker doesn't actually drive a Lamborghini in the movie. It is a kit car called a Vaydor, and it was designed by Matt McEntegart of Vaydor Exotics in Florida. Other artists contributing to the soundtrack include Lil' Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons, Action Bronson & Dan Auerbach, Kehlani, Kevin Gates and Eminem.
The Suicide Squad soundtrack is being compared to Awesome Mix Vol. 1 from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. The songs each play an important role in the actual story itself. And while the release has new music, it also features old classics from the likes of War and Creedence Clearwater Revival, while Panic! At The Disco is delivering a new cover of Queen's iconic song 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and ConfidentialMX is taking on the old BeeGee's standby 'I Started a Joke'. The soundtrack will be accompanied by a separate release containing composer Steven Price's full score.
From director David Ayer comes Suicide Squad! It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?
The all-star ensemble cast for Suicide Squad also includes Scott Eastwood, Common and Ray Olubowale, none of whom have been included in the marketing thus yet. Also making an apperance in the movie is Ben Affleck as Batman. And it's rumored that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor may show up as well.
Suicide Squad will be going up against The Weinstein Company's drama The Founder and EuropaCorp's comedy Nine Lives on August 5. This superhero adventure should have no trouble taking down The Founder and Nine Lives at the box office, but we'll have to wait and see. While we'll have to wait and see how this movie fares in theaters, Warner Bros. is already making plans for sequels and spinoffs.
Warner Bros. recently announced a Harley Quinn spinoff that may also feature characters like Batgirl and the Brids of Prey. Another report revealed that the studio is considering spinoffs for both The Joker and Boomerang as well, but it isn't known how far along in development any of these projects are. Another report claimed the studio wants director David Ayer to come back for Suicide Squad 2, with the studio eyeing an early 2017 shoot, although that hasn't been confirmed. Take a look as 10 bad villains and their misunderstood leader get ready to erupt on an unsuspecting populace in the blistering, action-packed adventure that is Suicide Squad, all courtesy of IMP Awards.
