DIRECTOR David Ayer STARS Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne RELEASED 5 August 2016
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…
