Suicide is Painless

Fresh from discussing it on the latest MovieFilm show, here's our latest look at the David Ayer-directed supervillain team-up pic Suicide Squad, due to hit this August. This one really gives the spotlight to the various Squad-ers, including Will Smith's Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, and of course Jared Leto as the biggest Bat-baddie of them all.

If I were to guess, just from this it sure looks like this movie could propel Harley, who first originated in the '90s Batman animated series, straight into mainstream superstardom. And while I'm biased because the John Ostrander-Luke Ross Suicide Squad comic from the '80s is one of my favorite runs of all time, as far as these "DC Cinematic Universe" installments go, this assemblage is far more intriguing than the comparable one from Batman v. Superman a few weeks ago.
