We Still Don't Know A Ton About Suicide Squad
Gunn is still working on the film right now, as it is still a year away, but that does not mean that they cannot start riling up fandom."#TheSuicideSquad team just got me these amazing new official title treatments for my birthday today. And the cast and I have so much more to show you guys on August 22nd at DCFanDome.com. See you there! 💥 #DC #DCFanDome @TheSuicideSquad," Gunn posted on Instagram. What an unselfish guy, giving us fans this present for his birthday.
It remains to be seen what Gunn will be able to do with this merry band of villains and anti-heroes. After the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, however, he has a lot of fanboy cred built up to play with. Here's hoping he gets to get weird with it, while not feeling like the DC version of Guardians.
