Suicide Squad: Harley Quinn Headlines New Still, Empire Assembles Task Force X For Cover Shot

Suicide Squad, David Ayer’s barnstorming anti-hero feature that pits villains against supervillains, is barreling down on its August 5 due date, meaning the Powers That Be over at Warner Bros. are entering crunch time when it comes to the film’s marketing campaign.

Indeed, WB was present at SDCC, pumping out new promos for its hotly-anticipated offshoot that covered scintillating new clips and a rare shot of Harley Quinn’s iconic jester outfit.

Yes, the wardrobe Margot Robbie’s unhinged maniac spans further than fishnets, a Daddy’s Lil Monster tee and that trusty baseball bat, and today Empire has premiered a new image that finds the fan-favorite enjoying some gold-themed revelry.


In related news, the outlet also quizzed DC producer Charles Roven about the status of the Harley Quinn-fronted standalone, revealing “[it’s] at a very nascent stage.” Batgirl, Poison Ivy and the Birds of Prey are all rumored to appear.

When it comes to Suicide Squad, though, David Ayer’s posse of lunatics comprise Jared Leto as The Joker (AKA the Clown Prince of Crime), Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo and Adam Beach as Slipknot. Ben Affleck, Scott Eastwood and Viola Davis also star.

Suicide Squad descends into theaters next Friday, August 5.
