Now, a constant barrage of leaks from the Deadpool set may well have dominated the past week’s awesome-superheroic-images news cycle – but that doesn’t mean that the Merc with a Mouth is going to get the last word.After all, Suicide Squad hasn’t even really stepped into the ring yet, and with filming only just about to get started on the all-star DC adventure, things are liable to get over-exciting any day now.Or, in fact, right about now.Y’see, director David Ayer – who has in the past few weeks joined with cast-member Jared Leto to tease the film’s new Joker – just released an image on Twitter…and it’s something pretty special:
Yup, that’s right. That there is pretty much the entire cast of Suicide Squad, all hanging out in one place at the same time…
From left to right – Director David Ayer, Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller).
As well as:
From left to right – Will Smith (Deadshot), Karen Fukuhara (Plastique), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Cara Delevingne (Enchantress).
The thing is, though, you may well have noticed that there are a couple of famous faces missing – and three surprising new ones included.
Well, Jared Leto is presumably busy getting into the role of the Joker (watch out, Toronto!), but what about Joe Manganiello, heavily rumored to be playing Deathstroke in the movie?
Well, according to Umberto Gonzalez (a.k.a. Latino-Review’s El Mayimbe), that’s very much not going to happen:
Instead, those three new faces?
(A.k.a., from left to right – Adam Beach, Jim Parrack, and Ike Barinholtz)
They’ll apparently be playing Ravan, Deathstroke, and Dr. Hugo Strange respectively.
Which is actually a pretty big reveal to just throw into a full cast shot like that. Nicely played, Mr. Ayer. Nicely played…
The big question now, then? When are we going to get to see them in costume?
