Fans of “Suicide Squad,” the DC comic book that’s about to hit the big screen, got a surprise on Sunday when director David Ayer shared the first photo of the film’s cast in costume. The film follows the team of DC villains-turned-heroes.
“Task Force X assembled and ready,” he posted on Twitter with the photo in question.
The cast is practically unrecognizable in their costumes: Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) has blue hair, Will Smith (Deadshot) is donning a goatee and bald head. Even bubbly supermodel Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) is transformed into a dark, mysterious figure.
Cast member Jared Leto is absent from the photo; Ayer tweeted a separate preview shot of the Joker a few days earlier.
Suicide Squad is scheduled to be released in August 2016.
