Leto, Will Smith (I Am Legend, Men in Black), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus), Jai Courtney (Divergent, Jack Reacher), Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns, Pan) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Concussion, Pompeii) have joined forces to create the formidable Suicide Squad.
You can catch them in action from August 5.
