IT’S A BIRD, IT’S A PLANE It’s the DCU dar­ing to go be­yond the de­pend­ably bank­able icons of Bat­man and Su­per­man as a crew of su­pervil­lains get drafted for the black­est of black ops mis­sions. Helmer David Ayer im­pressed with Fury and End Of Watch – gritty ac­tion flicks filled with flashes of wit and hu­man­ity – and this looks set to be an en­ter­tain­ingly skewed take on the su­per­hero genre. The pres­ence of an­cient sor­cer­ess the En­chantress among this soup of so­ciopaths means the DCU beats the MCU to the oc­cult fron­tier by two months…

SE­CRET ORI­GINS DC de­buted the orig­i­nal, heroic Sui­cide Squad in 1959. The su­per vil­lain­ous variant fol­lowed in 1987, the cre­ation of John Os­tran­der.

SU­PER POWER The sheer psy­cho- sass of Mar­got Rob­bie’s Har­ley Quinn com­mit­ted Grand Theft Trailer and we’re damn sure she’s go­ing to steal the film, too.

Just who you want on your side…
