They're in formation!

Director James Gunn made the weekend a little better by dropping a brand new photo of Task Force X from upcoming film The Suicide Squad on Friday night.

"Squad Undercover in Corto Maltese: Ratcatcher 2, The Thinker, Bloodsport, & Polka Dot Man in #TheSuicideSquad," he captioned the Instagram image.

Portuguese actress Daniela Melchior is playing Ratcatcher 2, and she engaged in a little social media fun with her director as well on Friday teasingly tweeting a "leaked" clip from the film that turned out to be some folks in rat costumes, dancing.

Doctor Who alum Peter Capaldi is playing The Thinker, Idris Elba is Bloodsport, and David Dastmalchian is playing Polka Dot Man.
