Suicide Squad (2016) was declared a failure from a critical point of view. Even most DC fans have shown their dislike for the movie at moments. The main reason for the dislike was the lackluster plot and how the production studio handled the project.

Fans were hyped up again when Warner Bros. announced its association with James Gunn, especially after the Director's success with Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

All the hype around The Suicide Squad was justified as everyone was blown away by the movie's first look and rebellion trailer. Warner Bros. has made fans happy as a new trailer for The Suicide Squad dropped recently.

What to expect?

The plot for Suicide Squad will focus on assembling a cast of baddies to execute a heroic mission. All the characters will be as weird and funny as the first one, with a primary focus on Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Rick Flag, and Peacemaker, with the last one seen as a weird idiot and a total jerk Captain America of the DCEU.

Despite the main focus on the lead characters, it is the King Shark, voiced by Legendary Sylvester Stallone, who has received tremendous love from the fans. King Shark will be a comic-relief gentle giant in The Suicide Squad. It seems that James Gunn has perfectly blended absurdity and fun in the upcoming movie.

Most fans expect the movie to be better than the 2016 flick, with James Gunn donning the director's cap. All hope is on the director to replicate the success he had with Guardians of the Galaxy.
