A new official pic from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad has been released, showing Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Deadshot (Will Smith) and Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) assembled and ready for action.

The pic was released via USA Today, where Ayer also spoke about the upcoming supervillain movie.

“We all need good guys and everything — yay, good guys — but at the end of the day, they’re kinda boring. They’re always going to do the right thing. When you’re dealing with the baddies, it’s easy to get ahead of the audience and invert expectations.”

Along with Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Rick Flag and Katana, the team put together by government official Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) in order to deal with a mysterious enemy in the comic-book movie also features Enchantress (Cara Delevingne, not seen in the pic) and the Joker (Jared Leto). The iconic DC Comics villain is said to "transcend good or even evil," and Ayer says of him, “He’s the king of Planet Joker.”

Suicide Squad opens on Aug. 5, 2016.
