Marvel may have shamed Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn for being James Gunn, but DC seems to be embracing him for who he is. The splash graphic of “From the horribly beautiful mind of James Gunn” shows you where DC is at in its warm embrace of Gunn’s work. And I’m showing up on day one based simply on that fact. The first trailer for The Suicide Squad is here and good lord from dick filled islands eaten for liberty to man eating King Sharks there is nothing about this trailer that doesn’t rule.
The synopsis for The Suicide Squad goes like this:
Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-anddestroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
