The Toy Fair in New York is usually a good source for new promo art and plot leaks, and this year’s event has been no different. The latest 2016 movie to be highlighted is David Ayer’s DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, and among the action figures, statues, and Funko POPs on display is the awesome new promo poster which you can check out below.
Rick Flagg, Enchantress, and The Joker haven’t been included, so chances are that we’re looking at the main members of Task Force X here (Flag is their leader and on the side of the government, while the other two are believed to be Suicide Squad‘s main antagonists).
It’s a great looking team, though in all honesty, it’s pretty hard to imagine Diablo and Slipknot making it to the end credits still alive and kicking. They’re easily the most disposable characters on the squad, especially as Harley Quinn is massively popular and there have already been rumours which point to Deadshot showing up in The Batman. Regardless, we’re excited to see everyone in action and we’ll hopefully be seeing a lot more promo material as we draw closer to the film’s release.
Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Viola Davis, and Ben Affleck (that’s right, even Batman will be making an appearance), Suicide Squad is set to be released on August 5th, 2016.
