Warner Bros. has released the red band trailer for The Suicide Squad, an R-rated movie about DC Comics' ragtag group of degenerate delinquents. Alongside the release came a fresh poster for the upcoming movie as well as a new batch of individual character posters showing the star-studded ensemble including Margot Robbie as the much-loved, fun-loving psycho Harley Quinn.
Although the movie will only be released in the later half of 2021, excitement for The Suicide Squad is already high. Here are some fast facts to prime you for the movie.
Who's directing it?
If the name James Gunn is familiar to you, that's because you knew him from Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) 2014 superhero flick Guardian of the Galaxy and its equally as successful 2017 sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Although he was initially dropped from directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 due to a series of tweets of sensitive nature Gunn had posted in the past—for which he was deeply apologetic—he was rehired after a very public internet uproar, with fan petitions calling for Gunn’s reinstatement and the Guardians cast jointly expressing support for the director.
