The man who never misses, and the girl who’s crazy in just the right way.

Continuing the recent trend of new images from Suicide Squad, director David Ayer has officially released the new Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Deadshot (Will Smith) covers for the latest issue of Empire Magazine. After already releasing new images and covers for Jared Leto’s Joker and Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress too, it looks like fans might be in store for a new wave of Suicide Squad promotion after the recent dry spell that followed the trailer’s premiere at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Out of all of the things that the film has to offer though, Margot Robbie’s onscreen portrayal of Quinn has possibly been the most anticipated for comic books fans. Not only will it be the first live-action take on the beloved character that they’ve seen yet, Robbie is also so perfect for the role that it still doesn’t quite seem real. It’s one of those movie castings that the minute you hear it, you understand and can already see it in your mind, and after her contributions to films like The Wolf of Wall Street too, she’s proven that she’s one of the most versatile actresses in the industry today, who should be able to take this specific opportunity and run with it.

Out of all of the other covers released so far though, these two might just be my favorite yet, and Robbie’s Quinn continues to become an increasingly-more exciting casting for me. Check them out below:

While he has a fairly large role in the trailer, it is possible that his understated presence up until this point could be Ayer and co. showing fans that the film will be a fair ensemble, without giving one character more attention than any of the others. Especially after the initial concerns fans had that Smith might take too much of the spotlight away from the rest of the cast members.

With this film set to be the follow-up to the likely massive blockbuster that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be, Suicide Squad has a lot to carry on its shoulders for a film that’s comprised of mostly unknown characters. While the inclusion of Jared Leto’s Joker should be more than enough to put average moviegoers in the theatre seats, it looks like the folks over at Warner Bros. and DC are doing their best to make sure that audiences know he won’t be the only aspect of the film worthy of their attention.

Suicide Squad is set to hit theatres on August 5th, 2016.
