Naturally I haven’t yet seen a movie that is still filming and I don’t read the current incarnation of the Suicide Squad comic book, but after seeing the cast in costume for DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad live-action movie — courtesy of director David Ayers — I’m glad this team’s mission is to commit suicide.
The roster includes (from left to right): Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.
Looks to me like costume designer Kate Hawley was allowed to spend no more than $100 per character — and devoted most of that to draping junk on Smith (check him out wearing his mask at left). I would suggest that little thought or effort went into these designs, but rethinking it, I decided that Hawley had to work very hard to come up with costumes this bad! I don’t like anyone’s look.
But look on the bright side: If the characters are killed off, there won’t be a sequel with these ugly folks.
