Barring a few last minute sessions in Harley Quinn’s impromptu tattoo parlour, David Ayer has now officially called a wrap on his adaptation of DC’s Suicide Squad, and the director took to Twitter to commemorate the occasion.
Assembling Task Force X together for one final shot – along with the cast and crew who helped make the film possible – Ayer took a photo to celebrate the end of production on the Toronto set, and you can catch a glimpse of the image in question down below.
Taken from what is likely to be a Kessler crane, it’s a little difficult to make out the leading members of Ayer’s Suicide Squad in the snap, though the majority of the main players seemed to have assembled at the front of the director’s ensemble.

Wrapping up production a full year ahead of release is not unusual for a superhero film of this nature, as it gives VFX teams a longer lead time to render and polish what is sure to be a CG-intensive project. It’s no secret that there is still much to be done on Suicide Squad before the film is in a fit state for theaters. As tantalizing as last month’s teaser trailer was, it was essentially a rough cut of the scenes that had already been filmed and color-corrected up until that point in the film’s timeline. Now that production has officially wrapped, though, we’re well on our way to getting a glance at the movie’s full-length trailer.
David Ayer has assembled quite the motley crew of villains for the picture, with Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El DIablo, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, as well as Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Raymond Olubowale, Alex Meraz, Jim Parrack, and Common.
