The cast of Suicide Squad, the upcoming DC film about a team of super-villains co-opted by the US government, have made their first appearance together in full costume.
Suicide Squad is perhaps the DC film I am most excited about, bringing in some of my favourite villains such as Captain Boomerang and Killer Croc.
These costumes are certainly interesting and match with the grim and gritty approach the DC movies are going for. Having said that, it took me a while to figure out who most of these guys are (still can’t guess the one on the far right), while Killer Croc (second on right) looks a little goofy compared to the more realistic characters.
There has been some speculation about why The Joker is not in the line up, but I think this is because he isn’t part of the Squad itself. More likely, he will be the main antagonist the team have to contend with, as was done in the animated Assault on Arkham.
I am rather nervous about this movie. I was not taken by Man of Steel and am not hopeful for Batman vs Superman. The Suicide Squad though has a fun and diverse line up, including villains like Slipknot that most non-comic readers will have come across. If anything is interesting enough to liven up this cinematic universe, it is this team.
What are your hopes for this movie?
