It seems that Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Suicide Squad is going to leave it's "mark," so to speak, on fans who visit the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas next week. Earlier today, director David Ayer revealed a new poster, which features a candy theme, with the Q resembling a sucker, while several of the cast members took to their Twitter and Instagram to tease new tattoo designs. If you're in Austin for SXSW, you can get these actual tattoos at Harley's Tattoo Parlor which will be set up during the festival.
While we don't know exactly where Harley's Tattoo Parlor will be set up, stars Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Adam Beach (Slipknot), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo) and Karen Fukuhara (Katana) took to their Twitter and Instagram pages earlier today to share the tattoo designs based on their characters. It isn't known if more designs will be revealed soon for other characters like Will Smith's Deadshot and Jared Leto's The Joker, but we'll have to wait and see.
The all-star ensemble cast for Suicide Squad includes Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (The Joker), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Karen Fukuhara (Katana) Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), and Jay Hernandez (El Diablo). Created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru for DC Comics in 1959, the Suicide Squad follows a group of super villains tasked by the U.S. Government to pull off a secret mission. The catch is that is will be nearly impossible, and most of them, if not all, will return in body bags. If they make it out alive, they will be rewarded their freedom.
The supporting cast includes Scott Eastwood, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Ray Olubowale, Alex Meraz, Jim Parrack and Common. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has been confirmed as King Shark, but as for the rest, there was a rumor last summer that claimed Scott Eastwood is playing Deathstroke, while Common is reportedly playing the DC Comics character Abel Tarrant, a.k.a. The Tattooed Man, but that hasn't been confirmed. If he is playing the Tattooed Man, then perhaps we'll get confirmation during SXSW, especially since they're setting up a whole tattoo parlor.
It isn't known if any of the Suicide Squad cast members themselves will be present at SXSW, which runs from March 11 to March 19, but it's certainly possible that these images could be teasing some surprise appearances in Austin, Texas. Would you get one of these designs tattooed on your body? Let us know what you think after checking out the tattoo designs and the new poster below, as we get closer and closer to Suicide Squad's August 5 release date.
