Director David Ayer started shooting Suicide Squad in Toronto in April, and production wrapped over the weekend. Alongside Jared Leto as The Joker, the super-villain movie stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Adam Beach as Slipknot.

Joel Kinnaman bagged the role of Rick Flag after a scheduling clash forced Tom Hardy to pull out of the film. Ben Affleck’s Batman is also rumoured to be appearing in the film after a figure resembling the caped crusader was spotted on the film’s set in May.
