Meet the Suicide Squad cast members

Director David Ayer has been a regular in posting updates on his upcoming DC movie Suicide Squad. And while it may seem a bit excessive, his most recent tweet shows a photograph which is worth framing. It is the first look of the assembled cast of the movie, as they got together for a cast read through. There are a few noticeable absentees, but the rest cut across a very relaxed looking bunch who are going to have a lot of fun while shooting this film. Along with this picture, it might be good to know a little bit about the characters which Suicide Squad will unleash in the DC cinematic universe.
