With Suicide Squad now a little over two months away, the final marketing blitz for the movie should begin any day now. That will include magazine covers, set visit reports, TV spots, posters and pretty much everything else you might expect, but in the UK, things have already gotten off to a rather bemusing start.
To celebrate the England soccer team putting together their squad for Euro 2016, Warner Bros. have released a promo video which takes a look at the members of Task Force X, offering up new photos of characters like Deadshot, Harley Quinn, The Joker and more alongside their vital statistics. The whole thing is pretty daft, but it’s good fun and soccer fans are sure to get a kick out of it (pun intended).

Suicide Squad‘s marketing campaign got off to a rather rocky start after the studio was forced to release the teaser they showed at Comic-Con due to it being leaked online, but that and the trailers which followed have done nothing but impress fans. And, as a result, excitement is understandably at an all-time high now for the film, despite rumours of reshoots being needed.
Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Viola Davis, and Ben Affleck, Suicide Squad is set to be released on August 5th, 2016.
