After months of casting, pre-production photos and the state of Jared Leto’s hair affairs, Suicide Squad is officially, finally filming. Director David Ayer has been bucking the studio trend when it comes to superhero films, and he’s remained very open and communicative about the project on Twitter. Ayer made the official announcement today, so expect to see even more production photos over at his account soon.

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.

Suicide Squad boasts a pretty heavy lineup of characters and stars, from Jared Leto’s Joker to Will Smith’s Deadshot, and rumors of Jesse Eisenberg reprising his role of Lex Luthor from Batman vs. Superman. With all these major players, it stands to reason that the film should have a fairly major villain to match. Over the last several months, we’ve learned a lot about the film, but there’s one thing that hasn’t been revealed, and that’s the identity of the film’s big bad. That might have just changed.

If you are so far unfamiliar with the Will Smith-starring Focus (which opens tomorrow), but you have been keeping up with Smith’s late night appearances, you might be shocked to find that Focus is not about the rapper/actor reigniting his music career. After all, Smith has already resurrected “Getting Jiggy Wit It” for a recent Late Show appearance. Next up? “Summertime.” Just go on tour, Will Smith.

It’s been a decade since Will Smith was “Will Smith” onscreen. Sure, he’s made movies in the last ten years; science-fiction pictures, dramas, comedies. He even played Satan, once. But none of them riffed on that classic Will Smith persona that everyone loves; the infectious charm, the seductive smile, the cocky but casual swagger. (What’s that? Men in Black 3? No, they never made a third Men in Black. You must be confused.)

Alert, alert: Will Smith still has it. The star of the upcoming con man romantic comedy drama (co-ma rom-com-dram?) Focus hit The Late Show last night to chat it up with host David Letterman and, oh, yeah, to just randomly rap “Gettin Jiggy Wit It” alongside Letterman’s own band. Sure, most late night guests just walk out on stage, give a big hello, and sit down, but not Smith, who seemed determined to remind everyone of his rap roots.
