Warner Bros have unleashed a spectacular set of film posters for their upcoming Suicide Squad movie. The unique and stylish posters show each of the individual Villains as skulls with a distinctive visual flair that represents the character it’s based upon (Joker’s manic grin and green hair, Deadshot’s cybernetic eye-scope… )
Extreme situations sometimes call for extreme action, which is where the Suicide Squad (aka – Task Force X) come in. The group of Supervillains and Metahumans who reside in the Government controlled penitentiary of Belle Reve, are tasked with taking on situations deemed too risky for normal operatives. Flying under the radar and with full deniability from the Government, these powerful yet unstable individuals must face the worst the world has to offer, with each member considered an expendable asset… sometimes evil can only be bested by something even more so…
Look out for the highly anticipated second trailer releasing on Tuesday 19 January as part of the CW channel’s 30 minute special titled – “DC Films presents: Dawn of the Justice League” right after the mid-season premiere of the second series of The Flash.
Well friends, after many months of speculation Warner Bros have finally announced the line up for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie and what an interesting and eclectic cast it is. Will Smith will be playing super-assassin Deadshot, Tom Hardy is Rick Flag (and not reprising his role as Bane as I thought he might), Jared Leto has been chosen as the clown prince of crime himself The Joker, with his partner Harley Quinn being played by Margot Robbie. The Enchantress will be played by Cara Delevigne and Jai Courtney has been cast as Captain Boomerang.
As I said very interesting casting choices here, there is still the role of squad leader Amanda Waller up for grabs but so far I am more than happy with the cast as is, and the inclusion of the unstable yet powerful witch Enchantress is awesome, I love that character. Critically acclaimed director David Ayer will be directing and again he is an inspired choice with previous movies like Training Day, End of Watch and more recently Sabotage being realistic, gritty and violent flicks, his style will suit the Suicide Squad perfectly.
The Suicide Squad were originally created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru in 1959, making their first appearance in The Brave and the Bold #25. They were re-booted by John Ostrander in 1987, they are primarily a Government funded black ops team of Super-villains and disgraced Super-heroes, running covert missions out of their home base of Belle Reve prison under the watchful eye of ‘The Wall’ Amanda Waller (who has already been seen on the big screen in the recent Green Lantern movie, played by Angela Bassett). Suicide Squad begins principal shooting in April 2015.
