At this stage, it’d kind of feel weird if a day went by without anything new from the Suicide Squad marketing team. Not that we’re complaining, mind you, but in recent weeks we’ve been assaulted with all forms of promo material, from TV spots to banners and character posters and everything in between. The hype train doesn’t seem to be letting up, either, as today we have even more from the film.
Following up on yesterday’s darker, more serious character posters, we now have another batch that are a lot more light and colorful, showing off all your favorites in a cartoonish, comic book style. They’re actually really awesome pieces of artwork, ones which we’d love to hang on our wall. Wild, wacky and somewhat over the top, they fit in perfectly with the marketing we’ve seen thus far, and we’re really, really digging them.
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, early word of mouth for Suicide Squad is already incredibly promising, with some people calling it “mind blowing,” and we already know the studio is ordering up several spinoffs, so it’s clear that everyone’s feeling pretty optimistic about Ayer’s movie. Whether or not the final product can deliver is still up in the air, but at the very least, it’s almost guaranteed to be better than the last DC Comics movie we got – Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
After an extensive marketing campaign, Suicide Squad will finally hit theatres on August 5th, 2016. Check out the poster gallery below and let us know which one’s your favorite by leaving a comment.
