There have been a number of rumors floating around regarding Warner Bros' DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, which starts production next month in Toronto. We have heard plenty of unconfirmed details about Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and The Joker (Jared Leto) thus far, but one character we haven't heard too much about is Will Smith's Deadshot. The casting took several people by surprise last year, partially because Deadshot's face is mostly covered by an elaborate mask with a red target eye in the comics, and most stars of his caliber have their face shown on screen at all times. Today, Latino Review's El Mayimbe has a new report which reveals details about Deadshot's costume, which will include the iconic mask. Take a look at what he had to say below.
"#SUICIDESQUAD #SCOOP per your request about #DEADSHOT! He has the traditional face mask with the target eye although changed to show his lower face. Dark red coloring with black. A molded bullet proof vest & he has guns on his wrists although he has a sniper rifle in most of his pieces. I think this hot #fanmade #art by razzann on devianart is pretty close to what we are going to get! #fanart #DC #dccu #dccomics"
Of course, the fan art shown by El Mayimbe isn't official by any means, but it does make us wonder when we will get our official first look at Will Smith's Deadshot. Since director David Ayer is always sharing photos from pre-production, many are hoping he will give us our first look at all (or some) of the Suicide Squad members in costume when production begins. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder employed a similar tactic, debuting the first photos of Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) on his Twitter page during the course of production. Will David Ayer follow suit with Suicide Squad? Chime in with your thoughts, and check out the fan made artwork by razzann below.
