Full Set Of Promotional Photos From ARROW S2, E16; "Suicide Squad"

That's right, as if Arrow wasn't already awesome enough, they will soon be introducing an early iteration of the Suicide Squad to the hit CW series. Hit the jump to check out a full set of promotional photos from the upcoming episode, spotlighting many of the team and regular cast.

AMANDA WALLER SENDS THE SUICIDE SQUAD OUT ON THEIR FIRST MISSION — Following Slade’s (Manu Bennett) return and his promise to make good on his threat to destroy Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) loved ones, Oliver focuses all his energy on preparing for battle with his former friend. Sarah (Caity Lotz) tries to help but, fearing for her safety, Oliver pushes her away. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) is recruited by Amanda Waller (guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) and A.R.G.U.S. to stop a warlord (guest star Lee Majdoub) he knew from his time in Afghanistan. Always the solider, Diggle agrees to help. However, he’s not prepared when Amanda introduces him to the rest of the team – Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe), Bronze Tiger (guest star Michael Jai White) and Shrapnel (guest star Sean Maher), all criminals he and Arrow helped put away. Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) defends the team and explains the world is a complicated place, but Diggle isn’t sure he agrees. When the mission takes a dangerous turn, Diggle is forced to make a difficult decision. Larry Teng directed the episode written by Keto Shimizu & Bryan Q. Miller.

Looks cool, can't wait! Why does Ollie have a gun?
Pasto - 3/3/2014, 11:57 AM
Ollie get your gun.
batz11 - 3/3/2014, 12:03 PM
Hey, is that Mike in the background ;)

DeathstrokeTerminator - 3/3/2014, 12:03 PM
Give Deadshot a mask somewhere in the episode, that'd be sick
soforizo - 3/3/2014, 12:06 PM
I don't like the photo shoot ones, but some of the in show ones are fine.
DimiPoint - 3/3/2014, 12:06 PM
i got the feeling that this episode is going to be extremely awesome SS here it comes
DimiPoint - 3/3/2014, 12:07 PM
is oliver about to shoot that guy to prove himself like he in the first season?

and it looks like oliver is talking to amanda waller with the hood removeed
soforizo - 3/3/2014, 12:10 PM

It's going to be Diggle-centric, which I feel adds an extra dimension to the show. It's also a fresh break of pace, shinning the light other subplots in the story.
Nomis - 3/3/2014, 12:12 PM
Arrow is AWESOME!

So I'm hoping they make the Suicide Squad evolve closer to their comic book look because this look is a little boring.
cipher - 3/3/2014, 12:14 PM
The expression on Shrapnel's face in the second team pic is not unlike the expression on my face whenever I'm forced to socialise with my girlfriend's parents.

I think we're both thinkin' the same thing- "why the f*ck am I here, where the f*ck do they keep the good booze (and do they even know the difference?), and can they tell I'm kinda drunk?"
Maestro - 3/3/2014, 12:16 PM
Bronze tiger still looks ridiculous, but overall it looks decent. I'm just hoping this show can drop the whole CW intertwining relationships / soap opera drama. Its seriously becoming very annoying. I don't want to feel like I'm watching a soap opera. That's the only thing holding it back.
NicolausCopernicus - 3/3/2014, 12:18 PM
i gues that the clock king will join the squad eventually
Nomis - 3/3/2014, 12:21 PM
@ ciph - ;)

CaptShipwreck - 3/3/2014, 12:22 PM
Awesome to you ... It's your opinion not fact ...
Ranger14 - 3/3/2014, 12:23 PM
Yeah, Shrapnel throws off any attempt at creating a cool vibe with the group photo.
cipher - 3/3/2014, 12:25 PM
Nomi- Hahaha, I'll never forget that day. It somehow felt colder inside that house than it did on the street- and it was freezing out there.

I think it was the icy glares.
Nomis - 3/3/2014, 12:29 PM

Gurl, We handle our bidnizz!

Nomis gang> Suicide Squade
Nomis - 3/3/2014, 12:32 PM
@ cipher - If her dad look like Dinero I would feel a cold chill too.
micvalpro - 3/3/2014, 12:34 PM
Why is Amanda Waller hot?
jimoakley666 - 3/3/2014, 12:38 PM
Wolverine called. He says "get yer OWN fuking gimmick".
Klone - 3/3/2014, 12:44 PM
Why is it every white guy in this show has stylized hair? And the Waller actress succccckkks. Still, I will watch the new Slade episode.
Ranger14 - 3/3/2014, 1:00 PM
I don't have a challenge with Waller and she hasn't had enough screen time for me to determine how good or bad she will be. I thought her brief moment was alright.
jesse4u27 - 3/3/2014, 1:18 PM
@ sidtheslothgod who is Johnathan banks?
staypuffed - 3/3/2014, 1:26 PM
I'm really excited for this.
Nixaliz - 3/3/2014, 1:42 PM

I couldn't agree with you more. All CW show's are like this. They are meant to appeal to tweens. If you're not a tween and you're really into this show then you're probably a Brony
SentinelofLiberty - 3/3/2014, 1:43 PM
@Dimi, Waller told Diggle that she knows what him and Oliver Queen do in their spare time. She...like everyone other than Laurel...knows it's Ollie under the hood.
gamecreatorjj - 3/3/2014, 2:06 PM
I hpoing shrapnel get's an armored suit soon
JoeMomma29 - 3/3/2014, 2:13 PM
Hopefully the members of the Suicide Squad will get masks or updated costumes as the episodes go by and this is just the introduction pics.
CarlXVIGarfield - 3/3/2014, 2:45 PM
"Bronze Tiger" I usually don't lol but LOL!!! Was Black Panther already taken? ;)

Beige Pussy out.
soforizo - 3/3/2014, 2:46 PM

I fully agree. Shrapnel is more tricky... originally I had stated that I wish Arrow stayed away from villains that they can't portray, and my opinion remains the same. Now all I can hope is that they further develop those characters. While a straight up adaptation of Shrapnel would look ridiculous, hopefully they can make him less generic.
RetroFit - 3/3/2014, 3:18 PM
Sweet! Meanwhile Agents of Shield sloppily tosses us a terrible incarnation of DeathLok that they thought up the week before it shot because it wasn't part of the Big Picture until halfway through the season and they realized the show was terrible and they needed to give it a poorly plotted out shot in the arm that didn't work at all like they planned because the show had zero direction and over-arching development from Day One.

Am I close?
Ranger14 - 3/3/2014, 3:24 PM
RetroFit@ No...not even. Way to troll by needlessly bringing up AOS...and on an Arrow article. Pointless, unless you want to start something.

supes123 - 3/3/2014, 4:06 PM
Does anybody know when the big name drop is suppose to happen?
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/3/2014, 4:16 PM
Wish the costumes were better. Otherwise, can't wait
Nomis - 3/3/2014, 6:20 PM
@ supes123 - Rumor has it it's ......

*** Spoiler ****

Lex Luthor!
mgeoff88 - 3/3/2014, 7:58 PM
The only person's outfit I don't care for is Shrapnel. He looks like a greaser.

Are we going to see a flashback of when Oliver worked for the Russian mob?
