Yay comic book movies! David Ayers dropped the first semi-full cast pic of the super villain flick Suicide Squad on Twitter. There’s a black guy, a Native American, and a crocodile. That’s pretty racist (via Superhero Hype)
Among those featured are Will Smith as Deadshot; Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg; Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn (more pics here); Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang; Cara Delevingne as Enchantress; Karen Fukuhara as Katana; Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc; Jay Hernandez as El DIablo; and Adam Beach as Slipknot. Missing from the photo are Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Raymond Olubowale, Alex Meraz, Jim Parrack, and Common in addition to Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller and Jared Leto’s previously-revealed Joker.
Wikipedia told me that the Suicide Squad are criminals or something who do black ops for Obama for shorter sentences and they’re led by Viola Davis. Per her contract, Octavia Spencer has to appear in at least one scene. They wanted to recruit Floyd Mayweather, but apparently there wasn’t room on the team for somebody who runs and hugs their targets. He also couldn’t read the GPS. Anyway, this is a post about a movie based on books with lots of drawings in them.
Also, here’s Will Smith as Deadshot or a Baltimore policeman. I’m not sure.
