It’s all coming together for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad as the upcoming DC film heads into production. Ayer himself has been pretty active on social media, posting pre-production and behind the scenes photos freely — which goes against the typical secrecy surrounding superhero film projects (not that Suicide Squad is your average superhero film). Today, Ayer assembled the cast for a big group photo, which features a few new faces.

After starring in the last 'Silent Hill' movie, Kit Harington continues his quest to extend beyond his "Jon Snow" character on 'Game of Thrones' with 'Pompeii,' a romance-action-'Gladiator' mashup directed by 'Resident Evil' helmer Paul W.S. Anderson. While the film probably isn't on the top of most moviegoers' lists of the most anticipated of 2014, the newly released photo gallery from Sony Pictures shows it'll have at least a few thrills for audiences ... and one menacing Kiefer Sutherland.

'Thor 2' will take movie goers into the depths of 'The Dark World' and introduce us to a few not-so-famous comic book villains from the Marvel universe -- the Dark Elves, led by Malekith the Accursed and his right-hand man and lieutenant Algrim/Kurse.

Aside from what we've seen from Chris Hemsworth's return as the Avenger from Asgard, one of the most anticipated aspects of 'Thor: The Dark World' is seeing the dueled comic book villain Algrim/Kurse brought to life on the big screen by 'LOST' and 'G.I. Joe' star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Although the actor has expressed interest in playing the Black Panther in a future Marvel movie, which the studio confirmed is in active development, he tells ScreenCrush he's just honored to be involved in this cinematic universe in any respect.
Still, with more high-profile roles coming up, including 'Resident Evil' helmer Paul W.S. Anderson's 'Pompeii,' is there a chance he could still tackle his favorite childhood superhero? Or be featured in more Marvel movies, for that matter?
