To paraphrase Will Smith’s line from the Suicide Squad trailer: “So that’s it, huh? Some kind of Suicide Squad cover of Empire featuring the full team line-up, in a world-exclusive image?” Indeed it is, Paraphrased Will Smith!

This is the third of Empire's exclusive covers to showcase DC's ragtag rogues' gallery of anti-heroes. The first, which featured Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn riding a bomb, Major Kong-style, is exclusive to subscribers, and will be plopping on doormats from today. Another – one of two available on the newsstands – features Jared Leto as the heavily-tattooed Joker, looking suitably mischievous.

The covers are merely the tip of a Suicide Squad-ian iceberg for the new issue, which features tons of coverage on David Ayer’s new DC universe film, including on-set interviews with all the key cast and crew – plus on-set access to Fantastic Beasts, and all the usual filmy goodness you’ve come to expect from the world’s biggest-selling movie magazine.

The new issue arrives in all good and anti-heroic newsagents from July 28. To guarantee yourself early delivery of Empire each month, along with this kind of special cover treatment, just sign up for one of the current subscription offers.
