With filming well underway in the busy streets of Toronto, and after having gotten glimpses of Jared Leto’s transformation during his public appearances, we are getting a better idea about Suicide Squad the movie.
With San Diego Comic-Con 2015 only days away we are looking at the schedule on ScreenRant and hope that some footage of the movie will be revealed soon.
We have already seen several set images, giving us quite a few details from the film such as our header shown above.
“What is the Suicide Squad?
Task Force X – better known as the ‘Suicide Squad’ – is a government-sanctioned team of convicted super-felons who serve as ‘deniable assets’, performing high-risk black-ops missions for the government. They are offered commuted sentences in return.
The team operates out of Belle Reve prison under the control of hard-nosed agent Amanda Waller, who keeps the motley crew of villains on a tight leash with remote explosive devices that can be detonated at any time.
The modern version of the Suicide Squad was introduced by John Ostrander in the 1987 event Legends. The team has featured a rotating cast of frequently obscure villains from across the DC Universe – often sending them back out in body bags. ”Jared Leto has big shoes to fill following the performances of Jack Nicholson and the late Heath Ledger. The Joker has never been a member of the Suicide Squad before and it will be interesting to see how he fits in. Maybe that is why he is missing in the new picture of the top cast? Or he is just not a team player?
Margot Robbie who plays Harley Quinn, the former psychologist Harleen Quinzel who fell in love with the Joker while treating him, just celebrated her birthday. She posted on Instagram a picture of herself on set in full costume with a Harley Quinn themed cake. Her caption reads “Harley’s cake- thank you squad!”
