Yesterday an image was released that showed us just how the members of The Suicide Squad are going to look and I have to say that it is quite impressive and a whole lot of ominous at the very same time so check it out below and then we can banter on it for a moment.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll admit that I think the team looks pretty damn menacing and at the same time cool and I have been a fan of The Suicide Squad since the incarnation that we got from the “Legends” mini-series about twenty years ago. I enjoyed most of what we got from The New 52 version and felt it was smart to include Harley Quinn in that roster based on just how popular that character has become. Just take a wander around any Comic Convention to see all the varied Cosplayers dressed as her if you don’t believe me. My only issue with the film being done in the first place is that we are going to meet villains for heroes in the DC Cinematic Universe that we do not even know are here yet. Since DC’s television shows and films do not “speak” to one another and exist in different realities for lack of a better comparison, its weird to find a Captain Boomerang since we don’t know the Cinematic Universe version of The Flash and so on. Most of the villains here come from the Batman side but then there is Katana who was a hero and served alongside Batman as an Outsider. Oh well, let’s see how it all comes together. The Official Wiki should be very helpful up until the film is released. Then I don’t suggest you refer to the link at all since it will spoil the overall plot. What do you readers think about this image reveal and the idea of a Suicide Squad film coming before we even get a new Green Lantern, Flash or Wonder Woman feature? Think it will work? Let me know in the comments section which has been left open for your disclosures. This film is set to open up on August 5th 2016, a few months after “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice”.
