With the release of its first trailer, Warner Bros. / DC’s Suicide Squad went from an oddball curiosity to one of the most highly anticipated blockbusters of 2016. But while the promo did a fine job of conveying the dark humor and gritty feel of the supervillain film, it didn’t offer a whole lot in the way of plot.
Fortunately, the first Suicide Squad synopsis is here to fix that. It doesn’t give away everything (which is not exactly something you can take for granted from a franchise that went ahead and named their next movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, just in case you were worried that the Batman v Superman feud would never end), but it does offer some tantalizing hints.
