Here's how the 'Suicide Squad' cast looks compared to their comic book counterparts
It’s kind of crazy that “Suicide Squad” is going to be the first DC comic book to get a movie after Warner Bros.’ aggressive new slate of superhero movies kicks off with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in March of next year. Given that the studio has yet to truly find its footing with the cinematic versions of its heroes, jumping right into things with a team of villains that the general populace probably doesn’t know anything about is an incredibly ballsy move.
That also makes it the perfect move.
While the trailer for “Suicide Squad” doesn’t tell us much, it does know that the movie’s basic hook is a great one, and leans into it hard: This is a team of some of the worst supervillains in a world where Superman exists, sent on missions where success is not likely.
And if that doesn’t intrigue you, hey, here’s the Joker and also a shot with Batman on top of a Lamborghini.
There’s a reason the trailer ends with the Joker: He’s easily the most recognizable villain of the bunch. Want to know who the rest are?

VIola Davis will play Amanda Waller.
As the trailer says, Amanda “The Wall” Waller is the fierce will pulling the strings behind the Suicide Squad, because she really is that good at getting people to “act against their own self-interests.”
Captain Boomerang will be played by Jai Courtney.
George “Digger” Harkness, aka Captain Boomerang, is an Australian master of boomerangs, which is kind of hard to take seriously. In the comics, he hasn’t been the best team player in the Squad.
Jay Hernandez plays El Diablo.
Though there are multiple versions of him in the comics, Hernandez is most likely playing Chato Santana an ex-criminal who becomes a member of the Squad in the New 52 series. He could have pyrokinetic abilities or be a host to a spirit of vengeance. Probably not the latter. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
