Comic book movies are very big money makers for studios. Marvel has reigned supreme for almost ten years. DC has finally got their train going, but Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while making over $800 million worldwide, failed to resonate with critics or fans. Warner Brothers is hoping Suicide Squad can help right their ship, but it appears, instead, they have another unfulfilling outing on their hands.
Superman is dead. Who can fill that void? Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) believes the world needs a team of heroes, but this team will not be filled with “heroes.” Instead this team will be composed with some of the world’s most notorious villains. Some of these members include Deadshot (Will Smith), Diablo (Jay Hernandez) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie). Their first assignment is a doozy, stop one of the other members of the squad, Enchantress, from destroying the world. Meanwhile, The Joker (Jared Leto) is on the loose and trying to recapture his old girlfriend, Harley.
