Released August 5

This hopes to repair some of the damage caused to Warner Bros’ DC Universe by the lukewarm reception of Batman v Superman – and the early buzz has been extremely positive.

A secret government agency recruits a group of imprisoned super villains – including Will Smith’s Deadshot, Margot Robbie’s (The Legend of Tarzan) Harley Quinn, Jai Courtenay’s (A Good Day to Die Hard) Captain Boomerang and Joel Kinnaman’s (Robocop reboot) Rick Flagg – to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency.

But when you throw Jared Leto’s (Oscar winner for Dallas Buyers Club) Joker and Ben Affleck’s Batman – whose world the characters will be familiar to fanboys from – into the mix, this ain’t gonna be pretty.
