A photo of the entire cast of Suicide Squad has been released. The photo was released on social media by director David Ayer, who wrote, “Task Force X assembled and ready.” Noticeable absent from the photo is Jared Leto, who is playing The Joker. It’s possible that Ayer didn’t see the need to include The Joker, since a photo of him had already been released. It’s also possible that The Joker isn’t a member of the team and plays the role of the target for Suicide Squad.
Suicide Squad cast includes Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress. Viola Davis will play Amanda Waller.
