I actually enjoyed Suicide Squad for what it was worth, but I am infinitely more excited to see Gunn’s take on these characters. We’ve seen him thrive before with a team filled with “who?”s, so if anyone can take a bunch of relatively unknown characters and turn them into pop culture icons it will be Gunn.
The Suicide Squad hits theaters August 6, 2021.
What do you screenagers think? Interested in seeing this at all?
