The entire skwad has assembled in a new poster for "Suicide Squad," which features the gang getting ready for its closeup -- and by the looks of those tense expressions and brandished weapons, ready to leap into action.

The image, which debuted on Yahoo! Movies, at first glance seems to be your standard promotional poster, with a group shot of our titular antiheroes. But when you zoom out from the image, it becomes something both whimsical and sinister, as you can see two large X's forming eyes (Jared Leto's Joker is standing over one of them) and the rest of the crew lined up into the shape of a garish smile.

That gang includes Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Deadshot (Will Smith), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Slipknot (Adam Beach), and government leader Amanda Waller (Viola Davis). Waller is mixed in with the rest of the squad, a nod perhaps to her murky motivations in sending out these villains to commit crimes on behalf of the U.S. -- and die for the country's secret sins, if necessary.

Check out the full poster, including close-ups of the Joker and Harley Quinn, below. "Suicide Squad" is due in theaters on August 5.
