The Suicide Squad is the DC film tasked with following up on last month’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.At first, this looked like a formidable task but after disappointing reviews and a huge drop off of box office revenues, it looks like Suicide Squad might actually be the more successful.
For the uninitiated (But we are initiated, aren’t we Bruce?), the Suicide Squad is a team of bad guys who are forced to work for the US government on particularly dangerous or risky black-ops missions in exchange reduced prison sentences. If they step out of line, the mission is compromised or their cover is blown, the good guys usually have a quick way of ‘marginalising’ them as to cover their tracks which has included implanting micro-bombs into their heads which can be detonated should things go south.
So, here’s the trailer!
Suicide Squad stars Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc with Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, the mastermind behind the idea and a certain Ben Affleck returns as Batman.
Suicide Squad lands August 2016.
