It wasn't just Batman that made a major impression at this year's Comic Con, his old adversary The Joker also put in a guest appearance.In fact of the two upcoming DC movies, it's David Ayer's Suicide Squad that looks the more fun and certainly feels like a proper comic book movie. DC's accelerated plans for their cinematic universe mean that we get two movies next year, with Batman v Superman in March and Suicide Squad the following August. There's no denying that Suicide Squad boasts an impressive cast with Will Smith playing Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker and Ben Affleck reprising the role of Batman.
Suicide Squad revolves around a secret government agency that recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency. So basically a comic book version of the Dirty Dozen. David Ayer has shown a lot of promise in his previous films but has often suffered unwarranted studio interference, so let's hope he gets to put his vision up on the screen this time. Suicide Squad certainly looks interesting based upon the trailer and Leto's take on The Joker will be markedly different from either Jack Nicholson or the late Heath Ledger.
Suicide Squad opens in the UK on the of 5th of August 2016.
