EW roles out ‘Suicide Squad’ covers

DC Comics and Warner Bros will try to rebound with fans after the lackluster Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, releasing Suicide Squad next month. Fans now get a tease of new photos and Entertainment Weekly covers.

suicide-squad-movie-logoJoker and Harley Quinn, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie, start off the pics: one with the pair in the car seen in several trailers and ultimately chased down by Batman and the second is the prison scene with Harley, also revealed in trailers.

The next is of Common as Monster T with the Joker and Harley. This image confirms/clarifies the reveal Common made in March when he stated: “My role is basically…he’s a character who’s in business with the Joker. His name is Monster T.”

It should be noted that Jim Parrack (Fury, True Blood) is playing Jonny Frost, aka the Pseudo Joker, so expect an interesting twist there and that some of the clips are of Frost and not Joker or that Parrack is in prison, fooling the police as the Joker escape from Arkham…again.

Karen Fukuhara has a solo pic as Katana and then comes the team photo and new EW covers featuring the “team.”

Still no reveal on Scott Eastwood or David Harbour, both have roles, but no word on who each is playing. Most believe one is certain to be Deathstroke, stuck in a jail cell and “too dangerous” to be part of this mission, but will be key in future DC Cinematic projects.

Will Smith stars as Deadshot, Robbie as Harley Quinn,Leto as The Joker, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Fukuhara as Katana.

Viola Davis plays Amanda Waller who pulls the “Squad” together and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag. Ben Affleck

Here’s the official synopsis for Suicide Squad:

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 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on August 5th.
