Empire magazine has continued its rollout of "Suicide Squad" character covers, with Will Smith's Deadshot and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn the next to get their turn in the spotlight.

Director David Ayer shared the covers on his Twitter page this week, and the images don't disappoint. Ayer dubs Deadshot "The man who never misses," and as Smith stares us down, it's hard to disagree with that assessment. The actor's intense gaze, badass suit of armor, and giant weapon strike an imposing figure, even more so when we see he exudes confidence and steadiness amid a fiery, chaotic scene in the background.

Robbie's cover takes a lighter approach, though of course, fans know there's a sinister character lurking underneath her candy-coated exterior. She carries a large bat and wields a handgun gun, her arms covered in spiked bracelets; though she's sporting a wide smile, the streaked mascara and jailhouse setting suggest that this "Daddy's Lil' Monster" -- as her shirt proclaims -- isn't here to play nice.

Ayer has already proclaimed that the flick will be what he dubs "Comic Book Movie 2.0," and these covers certainly seem to reflect that. Audiences can judge for themselves when "Suicide Squad" hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
