It seems 2016 may be the year when popular franchises try something different, such as the X-Men spin-off Deadpool, which is so crazy it’s just been banned in China, and Rogue One, which promises to be a different kind of Star Wars story. There’s also Warner/DC’s Suicide Squad, which looks like it might be fun and does supposedly tie into the comic book universe they’re creating with the likes of Batman v Superman, but is likely to be rather different in tone.
To help us see this may not be a typical comic book flick, a set of graffiti-style character posters have been released, which you can take a look at below.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘An all-star roster of actors has joined new action adventure Suicide Squad, bringing DC Comics’ super villain team to the big screen under the direction of David Ayer (“Fury”). The film will star two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (“The Pursuit of Happyness,” “Ali,” “Focus”) as Deadshot; Joel Kinnaman (“Run All Night”, “Robocop”) as Rick Flagg; Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Focus,” upcoming the “Tarzan” movie) as Harley Quinn; Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club,” “Alexander”) as the Joker; Jai Courtney (“Divergent,” “The Water Diviner”) as Boomerang; and Cara Delevingne (“Anna Karenina,” upcoming “Pan”) as Enchantress.
‘Ayer is also writing the script for Suicide Squad, which is being produced by Charles Roven (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”) and Richard Suckle (“American Hustle”). Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns are serving as executive producers.’ The film will be in cinemas in August, but you can take a look at the new posters below.
