Warner Bros. has released a new batch of character posters for Suicide Squad, the forthcoming DC Comics adaptation. They are essentially updated versions of the character portraits released last week, with a more movie poster-friendly background for each image.
The characters featured in the portraits are Deadshot, Katana, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn, El Diablo, Rick Flag, Enchantress, Slipknot, The Joker and Amanda Waller. Check them out in the gallery below.
Suicide Squad is the next film in the growing DC Comics Extended Universe, bringing together a group of villains who are sent out to save the world on a mission that's more than likely going to end with at least a death or two. Many of the characters are typically Batman villains, like Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, and others, and the hero, played by Ben Affleck, will be making a cameo in the film, as well.
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5, 2016.
