The first official Avengers: Age of Ultron poster was a big mess of characters and details, but the character posters are a lot more clean.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn finally gives us an answer.

If true, it’s very likely a minor, but crucial, spoiler not only about Suicide Squad, but Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice too. Read the Suicide Squad Batman connection below. Read More »
