You’ve heard of the Joker, Harley Quinn and Deadshot. But do you know Enchantress, El Diablo and Slipknot? You’ll meet them all next summer when director David Ayer’s eagerly awaited Suicide Squad hits screens, but you can get your first good look at the members of Task Force X, along with some of the other key characters from the film in the newest batch of Suicide Squad photos.

Dr. Harleen Quinzel stares down the Joker (or is it the other way around?). Killer Croc glowers ominously. Katana stands in a downpour, sword at the ready. If you know the characters already, you’ll agree that these images capture them perfectly. If not, well, don’t worry. You’ll be very familiar with them after August 5, 2016.

These photos initially ran in Empire magazine in the UK, but we’ve assembled them here if you missed them. Also included are the five Suicide Squad December covers, featuring the Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot and Enchantress.

Great as everyone looks, something tells us we might not want to get too attached to them. After all, Task Force X didn't earn it's infamous nickname for nothing. Keep up with all the latest on our Suicide Squad movie page!
