Suicide Squad: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Sunday, May 3, 2015

Taskforce X Assemble!

That may not be the right slogan, but you are certainly looking at the Suicide Squad, in the flesh with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn hitting the casting jackpot, courtesy of director David Ayer's latest stunt unveiling. 

Late last month, the internet lost all shits (in an ill-informed negative way) when director David Ayer took to his Twitter account to unveil Jared Leto's The Joker to commemorate The Joker's 75th anniversary.

And now, at the verge of Marvel Studios' all-conquering success of Avengers: Age of Ultron at the box office, another superteam has assembled in the flesh, seemingly in defiance of Earth's Mightiest Heroes: DC Comics' notorious ensemble of some of its most deadliest villains/anti-heroes... Taskforce X assembled in the flesh, courtesy of Ayer's latest Twitter reveal.

And here's the image in higher resolution.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the obvious standout would be Margot Robbie's absolute spot-on rendition of Harley Quinn. For those only familiar with Harley from Batman: The Animated Series (where in the world have you been by the way?), this is how the former Doctor Harleen Quinzel appears in the current comic continuity. 

Apart from this, we also appreciate Karen Fukuhara's extremely faithful take on Katana. And that's probably the end of the positive remarks we have for now. Mind you, we knew exactly how foolish it is to declare that the failure of a film based on an official first look image, and we are not going to judge. It is just that we find it rather funny that there seems to be more than a couple of zombies (two males, one female, you figure) in the team. Meanwhile, Jai Courtney's Captain Boomerang looked a bit off in that get-up while we can't even determine who Adam Beach is playing (rumor is that Slipknot).

And we are not even going to comment on the unnecessary outcry on how Will Smith's Deadshot is without a mask. 

Update: Will Smith himself has posted the masked Deadshot on his Facebook subsequently.

If you ask me, i would say that's pretty much as "dead-on" as far as Deadshot is concerned. 

In summary, all is not lost and we still see plenty hope in this one. After all, this film beat that cursed proposed Sinister Six film to the punch as the first supervillain team film ever.

Currently in production, Suicide Squad boasts an incredibly stacked cast with Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Jared Leto as The Joker. One of the two DC films releasing next year, Suicide Squad will be released on August 5, 2016.
