Yesterday, Warner Bros. debuted a new set of character posters for their upcoming comic book adaptation Suicide Squad, featuring the main characters that make up Task Force X. Today we have even more character posters, although these are much different, featuring comic book inspired artwork for the eleven main characters. These posters feature The Joker (Jared Leto), Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) and Boomerang (Jai Courtney).
These posters debuted on Facebook, and also feature Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Katana (Karen Fukuhara) and Slipknot (Adam Beach). 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?
Scott Eastwood, Common and Ray Olubowale round out the ensemble cast, although none of their characters have been confirmed quite yet. We also known that Ben Affleck will be returning as Batman, and there are rumors 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. David Ayer directs from his own screenplay, and it is believed he may come back for more super villain action, if Suicide Squad does well enough
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.
With Suicide Squad opening just a few weeks before San Diego Comic-Con this year, we don't know for sure if this movie will have a presence at SDCC this year. It's possible that the studio may put together a surprise early screening in San Diego, but that's only speculation at this point. While we wait for more on Suicide Squad, take a look at these new comic-inspired posters below.
