Last week, director David Ayer released a photo of Jared Leto as “The Joker” for the upcoming Suicide Squad film, which was vastly different from any iteration of the character we’ve ever seen. Now, Ayer has taken to Twitter to finally reveal the cast in full “Task Force X” (their team name) gear, as they will appear in the film.

The cast appears in the photo (from left to right) Adam Beach as “Slipknot”, Jai Courtney as “Captain Boomerang”, Cara Delevingne as “Enchantress”, Karen Fukuhara in front as “Katana”, Joel Kinnaman as “Rick Flagg”, Margot Robbie as “Harley Quinn”, Will Smith as “Deadshot”, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as “Killer Croc” and Jay Hernandez as “El Diablo”.
Missing from the photo is the aforementioned Leto/”Joker”, as he will reportedly play more of an antagonist role opposed to team member, as well as Jim Parrack who will play “Deathstroke”, a solo assassin in competition with the Squad. Common, Scott Eastwood, Ike Barinholtz, Raymond Olubowale, Alex Meraz will also star in the film in yet-to-be-announced roles, as well as Viola Davis as “Amanda Waller”.
Ayer also released a solo shot of Smith in full Deadshot gear, complete with his iconic eyepiece, mask and an assault rifle.

Here’s to hoping we see a full shot of Joker sometime soon.
