One of the best sneak peeks that came out of DC FanDome back in August was our first look at James Gunn‘s anticipated The Suicide Squad.

Director James Gunn recently revealed that Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment gave him “full freedom to kill anyone” in this movie.

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.

Since people probably don’t know a lot about them, here are The Suicide Squad characters explained. Read More »
James Gunn knows what’s important in a superhero movie. It’s not the villains, it’s not the action, it’s not the story. It’s the branding. (I’m kidding, by the way.)
