But these cover photos by Entertainment Weekly sets its mark to the next level. Some fans would already consider the movie to be the savoir of DCEU. After continuous disappointments, Suicide Squad movie has set its standards high even before its release. But the team cannot deny the inevitable pressure.
“Two years ago Suicide Squad was a tertiary DC property,” Director and writer David Ayer told EW. “No one knew anything about it. It was a cool little playground, and I was going to go make my movie. Now it’s like the hype bus. All of the attention has swung onto it.”
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we also got our hands on new set of images of Suicide Squad cast. The screenshots feature Harley Quinn, Joker, Katana and the rest of the members. But that’s not all.
EW was also able to get a look into the movie’s plot during their exclusive interview. The story sets off in Midway City after the events of Batman v Superman.
Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) decides to recruit supervillains from the society with Meta powers and special abilities. Although her program isn’t green lit initially, a “powerful mystical enemy” presumed to be Cara Delevigne‘s Enchantress and soldiers named Eyes of the Adversary pose serious threat to the city.
In an attempt to control chaos, the government grants access to Amanda Waller to deploy the Suicide Squad. Their controlled freedom comes with a price, as disobeying their given order would lead to the explosion of the tiny devices inserted in the villains’ necks thanks to Wayne Enterprises.
Also, we now know that Katana isn’t part of the team, but rather one of the leaders appointed with Rick Flag to ensure the mission’s success. Joker’s story, on the other hand, would resolve around Harley Quinn and his attempt to reunite with his true love.
Suicide Squad movie will be released worldwide on August 5th, 2016.
