It’s still way too early to see any promotions of any significance from Suicide Squad. The last thing we saw from the film was the trailer that was released just after Comic-Con. But recently a new set of images and magazine covers have given us a better look at the film, which is due out for an August 2016 release.
Just a few days ago, a full image of the new street-wise Joker (Jared Leto) was released. Now some high-resolution images from the film have finally hit the web. Check them all out here below.
Most of these new images from Empire magazine have been pulled from the trailer. There are a few behind the scenes shots featuring Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and a shot of pre-Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) psycho-analyzing The Joker. The first trailer showed us that Waller was putting a team of dangerous criminals together, because as she said in the trailer, “if anything goes wrong, we blame them, because we have built-in deniability.” That sort of devious thinking and lack of compassion will be seen, according to director David Ayer.
“She’s relentless in her villainy. When you look at her, there’s nothing that seems dangerous. Her only power is her intelligence and her complete lack of guilt.”
So it should be interesting to see what kind of impact she has on the film. She’s pretty much the DC’s version of a reverse Nick Fury.
As for the rest of the characters, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje says that Killer Croc is “a cannibal with rage issues,” while Jai Courtney describes Captain Boomerang as “an absolute bogan, in the purest sense.” Jay Hernandez says Diablo isn’t doing this just to kill people, instead he says that the DC convict “just wants to stay out of the fight.”
Joel Kinnaman who plays Rick Flagg says that his character is the highest-level operator working in the government, and that he has seen a lot of his friends die and that he’s also killed a lot of people. When talking about his relationship with the Suicide Squad, Kinnaman says “Deadshot gives him the most problems. Harley is easily distracted, but up for following orders if it means destroying things.”
Adam Beach described Slipknot’s physical prowess, saying that he is “formidable” and that “he can climb anything.”
However, Karen Fukuhara‘s Katana seems to be the most reserved and honorable of the group. According to the actress, “She has morals and codes. She can also slice through hundreds of people without taking a breath.”
Suicide Squad opens in theaters on August 5, 2016.
A secret government agency recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency.
