the suicide squad is not a sequel

The Suicide Squad is James Gunn‘s follow-up to David Ayer’s 2016 superhero movie Suicide Squad. But is it a sequel? A reboot? Or something else entirely? The Suicide Squad star John Cena, who is soon set to star in his own HBO Max spin-off series based on his Peacemaker character, has a really vague answer to those questions.

The Suicide Squad Action Figures

The Suicide Squad is coming to theaters and HBO Max at the end of the summer, and fans are eager to see what Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn does with the gang of villainous DC Comics misfits. Even though many of the characters will probably die, some of them can live forever on your shelf thanks to The Suicide Squad action figures on the way from McFarlane Toys. Easily the most coveted figure will be the beefy King Shark, but there’s bad news for fans who want the finned fiend. Read More »

James Gunn's The Suicide Squad

DC FanDome finally brought us a first look at James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad. The DC Comics movie continues the adventures of a few characters from 2016’s Suicide Squad, but thanks to the Guardians of the Galaxy director stepping behind the camera, the movie has a completely new style and it seems to have a much more vibrant look that draws from the colorful side of DC Comics. Along with that, there’s a huge new roster of characters, many of them from the more obscure pages of John Ostrander‘s run on the comic book series. Since people probably don’t know a lot about them, here are The Suicide Squad characters explained. Read More »

The Suicide Squad Featurette

Suicide Squad wasn’t exactly a runaway hit when it arrived in theaters back in 2016. But we can’t disregard it completely since it did give us the gifts of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. They’re all back in The Suicide Squad, the latest iteration of the DC Comics villain ensemble, this time with Guardians of the Galaxy franchise director James Gunn behind the camera, and an insane new roster of cast members. If the Suicide Squad featurette that just debuted is any indicator, you’re gonna forget all about that other Suicide Squad movie. Read More »

F9 Trailer

The Fast and Furious franchise hit a couple of speed bumps over the past few years with The Fate of the Furious and the series’ first spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw, but this year, we’ll see the latest entry in the primary ongoing storyline, which is officially being referred to as The Fast Saga. That means no Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham, but instead a renewed focus on Vin Diesel‘s Dominic Toretto and his eclectic group of racers-turned-international-spies. (God, I love these movies so much.)

And thankfully, there’s one very important #family member who’s returning after a multi-year absence: Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth movies in this series and was really the person who hit the NOS button on this franchise and turned these films into the globe-spanning, high-octane, over-the-top action extravaganzas they are today. And hot damn, it looks like he hasn’t missed a beat getting back in the driver’s seat. Check out the first full F9 trailer below.
