In just over two months, The Suicide Squad will be back on the big screen. However, most of this very expendable team is all-new for the sequel/reboot. So there’s been a lot of turnover. Now, director James Gunn has released a new picture of Peter Capaldi, Idris Elba, and David Dastmalchian in an unexpectedly casual situation.
The image appears to be in a night club where The Thinker (Capaldi), Bloodsport (Elba), and Polka-Dot Man (Dastmalchian) are trying to blend in. But while the guys on the right could theoretically disappear in a crowd, The Thinker didn’t even bother to cover his distinctive head. In fact, the way that Elba is holding Capaldi’s arm suggests that The Thinker is Bloodsport’s captive.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Suicide Squad:
“Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.
Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.”
The Suicide Squad will hit theaters and also HBO Max on August 6.
