After Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's success, DC universe is gearing up for the release of its upcoming anti-hero movie Suicide Squad. The movie will feature supervillains in the lead after they accept a secret government mission that will likely result in their deaths.

The cast includes villains like Deadshot (Will Smith), Joker (Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Boomerang (Jai Courtney), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and Enchantress (Cara Delevingne). The movie will also feature Ben Affleck's Batman, who will make his second appearance as the Caped Crusader in DC Universe.

Smith, who attended Warner Brothers' Big Picture presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, spoke to Comic Book.com about playing Deadshot in Suicide Squad. He said: "It was really great to play this particular character with this particular group of people with this director."

"David Ayer, he's created this big, gigantic world — this Batman world. But he was also only focused on the characters. So, to do the level of character work that he was willing to do with understanding an assassin and then how that assassin interacts with the Joker and Harley Quinn.... It was a great.... It wasn't just fun in terms of the little boy elements of running around, jumping, and shooting. It was fun to treat Deadshot like a real person," the Men in Black actor added.

The 47-year-old actor also teased a few details about the ending of the movie and told the website: "The ending of the movie is — spoiler free — the ending of the movie is a really unique way to have everybody collide. I'd never been in a scene like this with as many different elements as take place in the final sequence. It's very cool."

Suicide Squad is set for a worldwide release on 5 August 2016.
