Another day, another image from the set of David Ayer’s hotly anticipated Suicide Squad. Though most comic-book fanboys and girls and still busy freaking out over Jared Leto’s tattooed Joker, also exciting is Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s transformation into the scaly, scary Killer Croc.
Thanks to Twitter user @Thalia_ww, we now have a shot of the full practical effects being applied daily to Akinnuoye-Agbaje so that he can look the part of the DC Comics villain, a career criminal born with a rare form of regressive atavism, which means he demonstrates traits from ancestral species of the human race – including reptiles. It’s intriguing that Ayer chose to create the look with practical physical effects instead of CGI, but you can’t argue with his results.
How Ayer plans to explain that backstory and still fit in the rest of the characters he’s enlisting remains to be seen. The cast includes Will Smith (Deadshot), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Jared Leto (the Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jessie Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), with Raymond Olubawale (King Shark), Jay Hernandez, Ike Barinholtz, Jim Parrack, Adam Beach, and Scott Eastwood filling out the supporting cast.
Suicide Squad storms the multiplex on August 5, 2016.
