That's quite a look. You'd never know that was Will Smith in there. Missing, once again: Jared Leto's Joker, who got his own character reveal last week, separate from the rest of the group. When Ayer shared the first cast photo just of the actors, Leto was also not included. Is he not part of the task force? Perhaps his storyline is separate from the core group.
Nine characters did make the cut for the group photo, with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn front and center. That doesn't seem like an accident. This is an "all eyes on Harley Quinn" moment, and since a lot of fans grew up watching Harley in those animated Batman cartoons in the '90s, many eyes will remain on Harley in the movie. Fans are already judging each character compared to what they've seen before or expected to see, especially Harley Quinn.
In addition to Robbie and Smith (who also co-starred in "Focus"), the "Squad" is meant to include Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana (kneeling), Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.
That's not the full cast, but fans will have to stay tuned to see everyone's roles. And maybe if we all play nice, Ayer will share more full character profiles like he did for Deadshot.
