Meet Task Force X: first cast photo from Warner’s ‘Suicide Squad’

Suicide Squad cast photo

Following the controversial first look at Jared Leto’s Joker, writer/director David Ayer has released the first cast photo of his not-so-merry band of rogues from the upcoming SUICIDE SQUAD.

The image features (left to right) Adam Beach in an unknown role, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara (foreground) as a pretty accurate Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbajeas Killer Croc, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. The Belle Reve in the background is, of course, the prison and sanatorium that first appeared in John Ostrander and Luke McDonnell’s Suicide Squad #1 in 1987.

The picture comes from a tweet from Ayers which simply read “Task Force X assembled and ready. #SuicideSquad.” It provides our first look at each of these characters in full costume, including the Harley Quinn cosplay you will be seeing at conventions for the next few years, and then in 10 years again when it is acceptable to do it again ironically.
