Suicide Squad looks like it’ll be one of the most promising movies that DC has lined up for their Extended Universe. David Ayer is a wonderful director with a specific style that lends well to large ensembles and he also works well with getting fantastic performances from his actors. With the film just a little over two months away, post-production is coming in at full force and pretty soon, the cast and crew will be embarking on the press tour and the marketing campaign will launch into overdrive.
Today, Ayer shared a photo via his Twitter account, in which a scoring session is taking place with the film’s composer, Stephen Price. As you can see, Harley Quinn can be seen from what looks like the scene we saw in the “Blitz” trailer where she gives drinks out to the #skwad.

If the name doesn’t sound familiar, Steven Price previously collaborated with Ayer before on his most recent film, Fury. Price also worked on the scores for Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block, Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, and Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity. Price won the Academy Award for Best Original Score in 2014 for his work in Gravity and was originally set to compose the score for Ant-Man when that project was still with Edgar Wright’s involvement before he ultimately departed from the film.
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5.
