Just a few days ago we were given some juicy new stuff on Warner Bros. and David Ayer’s upcoming DC film, Suicide Squad. The biggest thing coming from that? Our first official full-body look at Jared Leto’s The Joker, and man it’s just magnificent. But just as we expected, that isn’t the only cover Empire has for the film, in fact there’s four more.
Released over the past two days, we not only get another chilling look at The Joker, but we get some incredible looks at Will Smith’s Deadshot, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, and Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress. They are a bit different from that collector’s edition featuring The Joker, but they are just as glorious. Yes, The Joker one may be the best, but these four are just as exciting, check them out:
Now obviously, The Joker is the one that stands out to most, because well, it’s The Joker. But quite honestly, I love every one. They are all eye-catching and really tease what these characters are all about. Will Smith as Deadshot is a lock, just a great casting (not to mention that he looks pretty freaking badass). And although I’m bummed that Delevingne’s Enchantress costume has essentially been slimmed down to a bikini, she’s still just horrifying to look at, which is exactly what makes her character one of the most exciting parts of the film, especially if her rumored role in the film is true.
But my personal favorite is Harley Quinn. Man, I just can’t get enough of her and this character. She is a favorite character of mine from the comics and to finally see her come to the big screen with Margot Robbie in the role, like c’mon! Can it get any freaking better?! I look at that cover featuring her and I can do nothing but get pure excitement. She is INSANELY gorgeous, yet looks so dangerous and psychotic at the same time. Which is exactly what I want from this character, and I have no doubt that Robbie can do that.
Along with the fantastic new covers, a batch of official images have been released from the issue. They offer some more incredible looks at Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Delevingne’s Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Killer Croc, Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller, and yes, Leto’s Joker. The best thing coming from these images is the up-close and personal look at Killer Croc and the killer makeup design put into the character. It’s a pretty scary look, but yet extremely fascinating. It’s going to be interesting to see this character explained and developed not just because of the look, but because he is so unknown to the regular movie-going audience.
But other than Agbaje’s Killer Croc, Margot Robbie just continues to look like she was born to play Harley Quinn. When her casting was announced, we just couldn’t believe how perfect it matched up. But with each new image and piece of footage of her in the role, it just keeps looking better and better. She is without a doubt one of the reasons I’m really looking forward to the film.
