While the photo doesn’t give fans any more clues as to what each villainous character will look like in the film, it does provide a first look at the (almost) entire cast together.

The photo also served as an announcement of three other actors joining the cast: Adam Beach, Jim Parrack and Ike Barinholtz (the three men on the right of the photo). While their roles have not yet been released, it is rumored that Parrack will play Deathstroke, with Barinholtz as Dr. Hugo Strange and Beach as Ravan.
Not included in the photo are cast members Scott Eastwood, who is currently promoting his film The Longest Ride, and Jared Leto. Fans shouldn’t worry about Leto’s absence from the photo. The actor has been keeping fans up to date on his transformation into The Joker on social media, and recently shared a photo showing off his platinum blonde hair with the caption “Transformation begins.”
Suicide Squad is expected to hit theaters Aug. 5, 2016.
