Back in the year 1959, Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru created a comic book series, ‘Suicide Squad’ that featured all the main antiheros or the imprisoned villains of the DC world getting hired by the government agency to go into the black ops mission in exchange for the clemency on their sentences.
The imprisoned villains included Deadshot, Captain Boomberag, Bane, Killer Frost, Poison Ivy, Count Vertigo, Deathstroke and Harley Quinn. The comic became famous overnight and now after multiple animated shows, the famous American writer and director of S.W.A.T. and Street Kings, David Ayre is directing a feature film on world celebrated comic book series.
This week, director David Ayer revealed the official first look of the characters in their proper costume of Suicide Squad. The film will assemble multiple cast like Will Smith will be portraying the character of Deadshot, whereas Joel Kinnaman will be seen as Rick Flagg, The Wolf of Wall Street star, Margot Robbie will be playing the role of Harlet Quinn. Adam Beach will be Slipknot, Violo Davis will be seen as Amanda Waller and the character of Joker will be played by Jared Leto who won an Academy for the role of HIV positive gay in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’.
In March, 2015, Ayer said that the film would also feature Arkham Asylum and for those who don’t know about Arkham Asylum, it is an asylum in DC/WB world which is the home for all the major Suicide Squad members. The film will also have a cameo of Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg for the role of Batman and LexLuthor respectively.
Using The Joker in the first look, the hype and the talks for the film are on the lips of every movie lover and with Leto portraying the role, the expectations have no bound.
Suicide Squad is written and directed by David Ayre and the principal photography from the film will be done in Toronto, Canada and Pinewood Toronto Studios has been booked for the preproduction of the film.
With this cast in the belt and the name of one of the biggest production house on your head, we are sure that Suicide Squad is going to be one of the most interesting superhero movie ever told. We still have Nolan’s fan in the house but for that we have to wait for 2016 to see and find out.
