Mysterious Creatures Invade The Suicide Squad Set In New Photos

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad film is about to enter its seventh week of production and has once again fallen victim to a slew of leaked images thanks to eager, eagle-eyed fans watching from afar. We’ve already seen shots of Harley Quinn encountering the Joker and close-ups of Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Killer Croc, and now we have a glimpse at one of the film’s biggest surprises yet.

A new batch of photos feature preparation for an action sequence showing a helicopter crashing into two Midway City buses, along with what looks like a pack of mysterious, grossly mutated soldiers.

Based solely on their appearance, it’s hard to tell exactly who these fully-armed sludge men are. One character we have yet to see enter the fray is Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress. Could these soldiers-turned-creatures be a product of one of her powerful spells? Anything is possible, I suppose. In any case, they represent yet another glimpse at Ayer’s devotion to using practical effects, which is always welcome in today’s CGI-saturated climate.

Suicide Squad will blast into theaters on August 5th, 2016.
