Ayer Reveals Full "Suicide Squad" in Costume in New Group Photo

On a weekend where Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Age of Ultron" opened to predictably massive box office numbers, writer/director David Ayer made sure that Warner Bros.' DC Comics-based films were a part of the conversation. On Sunday afternoon, Ayer released a "Suicide Squad" team photo on Twitter, featuring what appears to be the complete Task Force X, with nine members in full costume -- including Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara in what looks to be a very comics-faithful depiction of Katana (a character not previously confirmed as part of the film) and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag. The image also includes actor Adam Beach in an unknown role on the far left (Slipknot?), and what appears to be Jay Hernandez as El Diablo on the far right. The background reads "Welcome to Belle Reve," a reference to Belle Reve Penitentiary -- the DC Comics prison introduced in 1987's "Suicide Squad" #1 by John Ostrander and Luke McDonnell.

"Task Force X assembled and ready. #SuicideSquad," read Ayer's tweet. This comes a little more than a week after Ayer revealed the first look at Jared Leto as the film's Joker, a surprisingly tattooed version that prompted a vocal and polarizing response online.
