Meet The Team Of Psychos In New 'Suicide Squad' Posters And Promos

The importance of Suicide Squad to Warner Bros.' DCU has only grown in recent weeks, as we've seen much of the franchise go through a painful restructuring process following 'Batman v Superman'. While Zack Snyder is still directing Justice League, he's now under much stricter scrutiny from studio reps, exec-producer Ben Affleck, and the new heads of DC Film. There appears to be a new mandate to make these films lighter (not unlike the 'Rebirth' event going on at DC Comics) and thus more crowd-pleasing.

Suicide Squad is the first film to fall under this new creative vision, with rumors it underwent reshoots to loosen things up a bit. With Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn receiving her own spinoff at some point, there's a lot riding on the film to a huge hit. The future of the DCU kind of relies on it.

To help keep the momentum going for its upcoming August 5th release, a handful of Suicide Squad character posters have been revealed focusing on Will Smith's Deadshot, Robbie's Harley Quinn, and of course Jared Leto as the Joker. There's also a promo vid that introduces you to the team's roster of maniacal supervillains.  Check it all out below!
