Director David Ayer shared an ensemble cast and crew photo via Twitter on Friday announcing the completion of principle photography for Warner Bros.’s upcoming DC Comics adaptation, Suicide Squad. Filming began back in April under the working title of Bravo 14, and just four months before it would break ground at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 with a current tally of well over 50.7 million views compared to that of the studio’s forthcoming Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice now at over 45.7 million.
Take a look!
Between the epic cast photo back in May, the comic-con trailer, actress Margot Robbie‘s newfound tattoo artisanship as DC femme fatale Harley Quinn, actor Jared Leto‘s entry as the cinematic remergence of The Joker for a new generation of DC fans and superhero cinephiles alike, there’s plenty of reason to be excited for this one. Ayer’s grounded application for a big scale comic book epic full of fantasy will be greatly appreciated following previous films like End Of Watch and last year’s explosive war drama, Fury, with a slight nod to at least one other comic book franchise which is currently posied for a future franchise reboot of its own. And now all we need is another year of trailers and even more comic book movie angst! Fantastic.
Robie and Leto join Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevigne and Viola Davis with Ike Barinholtz, Jim Parrack, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, Karen Fukuhara, Raymond Olubowale and others for the film’s release on August 5, 2016 following Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice on March 25, 2016.
