As Suicide Squad writer-director David Ayer recently pointed out, the good guys are kind of boring. You know who’s probably not boring? Ayer’s crackpot team of supervillains, who are shown standing in the shape of a sinister smile in this exclusive teaser image above.
In it, you can spot the whole Squad including Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Deadshot (Will Smith), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), and of course the Joker (Jared Leto). Their government leader Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) is also in the picture, wearing a red blazer. She’s the one who has the difficult task of letting these bad guys and gals loose from their jail cells and onto the streets to fight a daunting enemy in exchange for their freedom.

If you look closely enough at the Joker, you can just make out his forehead tattoo that reads, “Damaged.”
We’ll find out just how much damage is unleashed when Suicide Squad hits theaters on Aug. 5. A new trailer for the comic-book movie airs Tuesday night on The CW during the special DC Films Presents: Dawn of The Justice League at 9.30 p.m. ET/PT.
