First Look at Suicide Squad is Shockingly Unremarkable

A photo released by director David Ayers on Twitter earned restrained groans but no open hostility.

Disappointing both fans hopeful to be blown away and critics hopeful for more hilarious photoshop fodder, Warner Bros. released a decidedly average looking shot of the Suicide Squad cast in full costume yesterday. The photograph, depicting the nine members of the squad in mostly black and dark gray costumes on a mostly black and dark gray background, featured no distinguishing characteristics that made it immediately stand out as a target for ridicule.

"I mean, the costume budget appears to be at least moderately higher than an internet fan film," commented one fan on the social media. "That's gotta count for something."

"Will Smith looks like he would be a tough competitor at the local paintball joint," added another. "I wouldn't want to be matched up against him if I showed up on free play night.

"It looks like Rick Flagg is really jonesing for his e-cigarette," pointed out a third, taking a big puff off of his own personal vaporizer. "That makes me feel somewhat sympathetic toward the character, which is a first for a DC movie."

The photo has actually been spectacularly well received when compared to the recent photo of Jared Leto's Joker from the film, in which the iconic villain looked like he was on his way to the Gathering of Juggalos to drink Faygo soda and smoke crystal meth, or perhaps to drink crystal meth and smok Faygo soda. We're really not sure what goes on there, but we're pretty sure it ends up with a nude Tila Tequila being pelted with glass bottles on a stage at 3AM while FBI agents assigned to spy on it question their life choices. In any case, this photo, as uninspiring as it is, couldn't possibly be anything but a step up.

So, nice job, Warner Bros., we guess. You didn't completely screw up this time.


UPDATE: Here's a photo of Smith as Deadshot in his mask, which could be worse:
