Check out the first picture of the Suicide Squad cast

David Ayer has revealed our first proper look at the team of super-villains in costume via his Twitter feed. Taking us through the lineup of Task Force X, the new image contains a significant proportion of the film’s ensemble, with the notable exception of Jared Leto's Joker.

Who’s who? Well, from left to right you have Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.

Ayer also revealed a close up look at Smith's Deadshot in his mask...

Interestingly, while Will Smith's arguably the biggest name here, Tom Hardy, who dropped out from playing Rick Flagg, has read the script and has been teasing some interesting things for Joker and Harley in Suicide Squad.

Directed by Ayer, Suicide Squad will open in the UK and US on August 5th, 2016.
