In advance of its new Trailer debuting Tuesday, come these new character posters for Warner Bros.’ Toronto-made SUICIDE SQUAD! These animated depictions of our “WORST. HEROES. EVER.” might not feature the actual Actors, but they give us a sense of the Film’s aesthetic. We were waiting on the Harley Quinn Poster most, to be honest.
See the just-release Posters!
Warner Bros. Pictures Canada release SUICIDE SQUADFriday, August 5, 2016.
Talk about a real mission impossible! Sometimes all you need is a bit of luck on your hands. We had the amazing pleasure of running into The Joker himself, Jared Leto today in the City. Believe me, after many attempts to find him on the set of Suicide Squad, we’d just about given up. Time after time we’d get a faint hand-wave seen through the tinted window of his white Yukon after some long waits overnight, sacrificing our entire weekend more than once. And we’ve read the disappointing Fan interactions on Social Media where he simply would decline Selfies around the City and walk along in a non-caring manner. When you don’t expect it, that’s when it happens most and that’s been our Motto in life.
Sporting green Joker hair and a signature Nepal, I Love You T-shirt, showing his ardent support and spreading continued awareness for the country after a devastating earthquake back in April, we crossed paths with the Academy Award-winning Actor. He was headed-up the Escalator, my heart raced and my ears pricked and acting on instinct, I whipped-out my Samsung Galaxy S6. Without speaking a word, he gazed right into the lens for a quick pose, I pressed “snap” and despite reacting just a millisecond late, we managed to get a super-rare Snap with The Joker himself right side by side with us. Our shoulders touched. He said “yes” to the Selfie … with his eyes!!! We’re still on Cloud Nine and appreciate any interaction with him at this point as we know first-hand how tough Leto‘s been to catch.
His acclaimed performance as transgendered Rayon was everything to us and we were sad knowing he was in-town for Dallas Buyers ClubTIFF ’13 and we missed him completely!
He continued ahead of us with his Handler and as luck would have it, we were both Airport-bound Civic Day weekend – him off to see a loved one and we off to New Jersey for a super-short visit (Triple Crown Champ American Pharoah in the $1.75 million Haskell Invitational).
Suicide Squad wraps later this month in the City, before getting a release exactly a year later in August 2016 via Warner Bros.
We’ve been on it as much as we can with the Suicide Squad Cast. Click here for more.
While his other SUICIDE SQUAD Castmates were out having fun in San Diego this past weekend, Scott Eastwood decided to stay in Toronto to spend some quality time with his sister, Francesca, in-town filming Heroes: Reborn – which also made a splash at Comic-Con. Taking a road trip across the Border to see The Rolling Stones, the Siblings spent more time together today on Toronto Island, taking-in the sun.
We spotted Eastwood out tonight after a long day and despite being exhausted, he still was kind to stop for a quick Snap.
He joked earlier in the day on Twitter that he isn’t seen enough in Warner Bros.’ new hotly-buzzed Teaser Trailer (watch here) for SUICIDE SQUAD. Perhaps they’re saving the best for last?
San Diego certainly was the place to be this weekend as the San Diego Comic-Con took place, uniting hundreds of thousands of Fans together with Talent from upcoming Blockbusters of multiple genres. Teasers were unveiled, Trailers were shown, crowds went ecstatic! And to think how many of these Productions filmed right here on our home turf in Canada!
We’ve compiled a bunch of our favourite Snaps to come out of Comic-Con this weekend. We wish we were there, we know that much!
She practically is on every billboard and bus shelter right now, but surprisingly she just now is leaving an imprint on the mainstream conscience with her distinctive visage, including her trademark thick eyebrows. By this time next year, every one will know Cara Delevingne. She’s got eagerly-awaited PAPER TOWNS out later this month in which she stars alongside Nat Wolff.
The jet-set Supermodel who gradually is making her foray into Film, has been in and out of Toronto the past couple months filming DC Comics‘ surefire Smash SUICIDE SQUAD under the eye of David Ayer. Surprisingly though, she has remained under-the-radar, spotted out rarely other than some Photos of her as Enchantress on the set of the Film.
We’ve met the Supermodel multiple times including visits prior to New York for the Met Ball and she’s super-kind. Perhaps it’s the fatigue catching up with her, but the Star after partying hard at the Glastonbury Festival this weekend and appearing at Pal Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour, looking a vision of exhaustion flying back to continue work on Suicide Squad.
Noticing Paparazzi upon arrival, she put-on her sunglasses, covered her face, apologizing sincerely for not stopping for Photos with Fans and then proceeded to flip Photographers the middle finger. This is unlike the Delevingne we know, but we get it. Perpetual daily hounding can turn someone this way. We love Cara and hope she is taking care of herself. Regardless, we’re still happy to have shared a moment with this hard-working young lady and know she does truly love her Fans regardless how she feels about having her Photo taken.
A jet-set life she lives indeed! Our Queen Margot Robbie between filming Suicide Squad in Toronto this Summer has been taking care of business on both sides of the Atlantic and we caught-up with her yesterday with Fiance Tom Ackerley as they arrived from London to spend some quality time together. Robbie has been hard at work in the leading role of Harley Quinn in the DC Comics Adaptation, filming at all sorts of peculiar hours and despite being high profile, has remained relatively low-key and private despite some of the Set Photos which have surfaced.
We did have the pleasure of meeting Robbie a couple years back in New York at the Met Ball and we were so enamoured by her – just gracious, down-to-earth and beautiful and we’re happy we got to say “hi” quickly again. She’s just as amazing as we remembered, handling the Fan-Paparazzi thing with grace and class. Her hair was no fuss and she wore a breezy, black sheer dress with embroidery.
Although we haven’t been seeing much of him on-set these days, Alex Meraz v. much still is in Toronto! By chance we saw the Arizona-born Actor earlier today as he had out to train for his still undisclosed role in DC Comics’SUICIDE SQUAD. Meraz, who had a role in The Twilight Saga as Paul, is also a Dancer and Martial Artist also.
He was amazingly nice to stop for some Photos today and gave me the best Selfie of all! Actually thrilled as we kept missing him on-set these past couple weeks.
Keep a tab – Meraz definitely is a star on the rise.
Filming continues for Suicide Squad and while we do love having the A-List Cast in the City, local Businesses and Commuters are starting to see the impacts of reduced handle and increased commute times respectively.
A strip of Yonge Street was shut down by Eaton Centre last night and Onlookers got to witness a positively cool Spectacle as The Joker (played by Jared Leto) – or his Body Double at least – sped along the Street. The Batmobile even made an appearance.

Filming wrapped almost at 7 AM, as one by one Cast Members Karen Fukuhara, Margot Robbie, Jay Hernandez, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and Adewale made their way back to Wardrobe, sporting some physical wear and tear in their makeup, indicating somewhat of a physical scene being filmed in an interior. We caught-up with some of the Cast who despite it being a really long day on-set, still made time to say “hi” before wrapping. Courtney who normally is quiet on-set, patiently stopped for Fans via a roll-down of his window and was wowed by my Camera. “Wow! A Selfie on a Long Lens. Nice!”, he said.
Robbie who consistently is not doing Selfies on-set, much to the disappointment of Fans, signed a sea of Autographs, noticing one Fan who brought along some Suicide Squad Ball Caps which impressed her. She took one home even! This weekend one lucky Fan at Varsity Cinemas was lucky to get a Selfie with the lovely Aussie.
Hernandez stuck to his word, promising a quick moment with Fans, pulling over his Van to sign everything passed his way and surprisingly was quick to remove his El Diablo skeletal makeup. Kinnaman despite looking most tired, was kind to get out of his SUV to greet Fans. Class Act.
Filming continues through the Downtown Core this week before heading again off-location back to Pinewood Studio.
Filming is kicking into high gear for David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad, taking place much overnight of late. The Mega Blockbuster starring an A-List Cast as some of DC Comics‘ most beloved Supervillains shut down part of Financial District last night and among those on-Set were the likes of Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Scott Eastwood, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez and more.
We spotted Robbie in full costume, dressed as Harley Quinn and Smith also as Deadshot, as they head off to work for the night. Hernandez‘s El Diablo also was seen in full skull makeup through the window his van, waving to Fans. Although Plot details are under tight wraps, a Child actress was seen heading to set, hence some are speculating filming may have involved some type of a flashback for Robbie‘s Quinn.
Smith, Robbie and Eastwood were more than generous to stop for Fans in the wee hours of the morning post-wrap before heading to rest before another night shoot ahead. Filming moves north to the Yorkville area the next few days.
