Villains Who Do Good, Kind Of
Suicide Squad is right around the corner (August 5.) Hopefully it makes up for Batman v Superman. Entertainment Weekly put out a spread of each character and their purpose. Check ’em out if you don’t already know the comics.
Deadshot (Will Smith)
An assassin-for-hire by day, a concerned dad by night, Deadshot is one conflicted baddie who enjoys the hunt but is still trying to do right by his young daughter.
The Joker (Jared Leto)
Jared Leto’s Joker is different than any we’ve seen before—less theatrical than Jack Nicholson, more unhinged than Heath Ledger—but no less psychotic. Despite all his power, this Clown Prince of Crime is having difficulty reuniting with true love Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie)—a rift that has left him agitated and…well, slightly sad.
Enchantress (Cara Delevingne)
It doesn’t seem fair that a witch this menacing would possess a vessel as sweet and pure as archaeologist June Moone.
