The Hollywood Reporter managed to nab an exclusive photo shoot and comments with the cast of the DC Extended Universe this past weekend at San Diego Comic Con.
The comments were only with the Suicide Squad side, with director David Ayer along with cast members Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne:
The footage he showed was surprisingly dark in tone, but at the shoot Ayer told THR of the film, “The real shock is how hilarious it’s going to be.”
“This was just a little taste,” he [Smith] told THR backstage. “We’ll see them again next year.”
“We’re very much a squad,” said Robbie, with her co-star Delevingne joking, “We should start a dance squad.” Indeed, the cast was seen taking plenty of selfies together, laughing at inside jokes and throwing up their hands in faux-squad poses during the shoot.
Meanwhile the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were also seen bonding with each other but in a different fashion and then along with the cast of Suicide Squad, all coming together as one big team:
The cast of Batman v. Superman looked on with bemusement, like they weren’t quite sure what to do with the family member that steals cars for a living. They were bonded too, it just showed in a more subdued way — like when Adams jokingly sat on Affleck’s lap when they were taking their seats for the shoot. But don’t let their quiet demeanor fool you: Adams photo-bombed Delevingne and Gadot with aplomb.
And while they may be only newly acquainted, there’s already a friendly rivalry brewing between the two casts, with the Suicide Squad group joking that they’d eat all the sandwiches before the Dawn of Justice cast got there. Affleck, meanwhile, joked that he wouldn’t be waiting on the slacking Suicide Squad to take his group photo.
