"Suicide Squad" Hijacks "Entertainment Weekly" Covers in Badass Group Shots

Entertainment Weekly has revealed a special collector's series of covers honoring the upcoming "Suicide Squad" movie. The covers promote a new feature that delves deep into all things "Suicide Squad" -- from David Ayer's extreme directorial methodology, to cast reactions, and Jared Leto's weird Joker-inspired method acting.

There are four unique covers in all, each one featuring various villains from the film. But the true masterpiece, and the one likely to fly off shelves the fastest, is the Joker and Harley Quinn combo that's simply the perfect mix of wholesomeness and terror.

Check out EW's "Suicide Squad" covers below:

The feature itself unboxes "Suicide Squad's" spike in public interest following the lackluster critical and audience responses to "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". The issue covers how Ayer handled the mounting anticipation, among other topics.

"Two years ago ­Suicide Squad was a tertiary [DC property]. No one knew anything about it. It was a cool little playground, and I was going to go make my movie," Ayer told the mag. "Now it's like the hype bus. All of the attention has swung onto it, and it has to carry a lot more weight than it was ever intended to. I think it can sustain it. But it's a lot of pressure. You definitely feel the pressure."

Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5, 2016. The latest villain-themed issues of Entertainment Weekly are on shelves now.
