Suicide Squad will expand upon DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice by interweaving elements of the March 25 superhero team-up, which brings Batman, Superman and Wonder Wonder Woman together for the first time on the silver screen, into an interconnected, cohesive DC cinematic universe. DC hopes to match Marvel’s formula of success, which has resulted in the release of 13 feature films, with another 10 in the works.
Suicide Squad is directed by David Ayer. It stars Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc. Suicide Squad opens in theaters Aug. 5.
