David Ayer took to his Twitter account to reveal a brand new Suicide Squad cast photo, officially confirming the start of production with a group shot taken at the cast table read.
Performers present included Will Smith (Deadshot), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), along with several new performers including Jim Parrack, Ike Barinholtz and Adam Beach.
Notably absent from the snapshot was Jared Leto who is set to take on the role of the Joker in the upcoming adaptation. While some fans suggested that he might have been the one to take the photo, it’s more plausible that he was absent as the film’s producers are wanting to keep his new appearance as the Clown Prince Of Crime a secret.
Ayer’s Suicide Squad will definitely shake up DC’s Cinematic Universe when it’s released on August 5, 2016.
