The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one that’s as expansive as it is popular. Starting with 2008’s Iron Man, the MCU helped spawn a whole movement of superhero movies. DC/Warner is only now beginning to catch up, with 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice kicking things off. It could be argued though that Suicide Squad is the studio’s most anticipated release, indicated by the 20 million-plus views the first trailer has netted since it debuted this last summer.
We’re still not quite at the August 5, 2016 release, and between now and then, we’ve had X-Men: Apocalypse to tide us over. That still doesn’t mean we can’t start speculating all the same as to what’s in store. Many have said that Suicide Squad could be DC’s equivalent of Guardians of the Galaxy, and based on what we’ve seen so far, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if that prediction came true. Here’s everything we’ve learned from the numerous articles, rumors, and footage collected over the vast reaches of the internet.
1. The trailers
Two full-length trailers for Suicide Squad have been released in the U.S. so far. The first was shown at Comic-Con last summer, while the second premiered on The CW on January 19. More recently, an international trailer with a few seconds of new footage emerged online. Finally, a new “Blitz” trailer debuted at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards. All of the trailers can be seen below.
