Clearly showing that the entire cast is on their A-Game and excited for the beginning of production for the film, director David Ayers took to Twitter to reveal the very first official cast photo of the DC Cinematic Universe anti-hero film “Suicide Squad“, which will star Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Cara Delevinge as Enchantress, and Jared Leto as The Joker.
Noticeably absent from the photo is Leto, but he was probably on tour with his band Thirty Seconds To Mars, or the guy behind the camera taking the shot, which was tweeted by Ayers below:
