Not to be confused with the 2016 movie, "Suicide Squad."

The Suicide Squad

The official trailer for The Suicide Squad, the upcoming DC Comics film, was released today.

The Suicide Squad — not to be confused with the 2016 film, Suicide Squad — yet again centers around Harley Quinn, this time joined by Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Blackguard, and an array of convicts at Belle Reve penitentiary who, naturally, are all hired to destroy a different prison. Except this time, there's a Nazi subplot for some reason. The film is currently slated for release on August 6, 2021, in theaters and on HBO Max.

The highly anticipated films will now also premiere on Disney Plus. Cruella will hit the site on May 28, while Black Widow has been pushed back two months, debuting now on July 9 rather than May 7. The "Premier Access" titles will of course cost a $30 renter fee.

Since WandaVision's series finale on March 5th, the only content more pervasive throughout the fandom than plot hole debates is speculation over a second season.

Curiosity over a show's renewal status is common, despite studios usually greenlighting additional season(s) publicly before the prior ends. When such an announcement doesn't come, you can expect plenty of internet speculation and clickbait fueled by the desperate hope of mourning fans. Will Fleabag come back for a third season? The End Of The F***ing World was too good not to keep going, right?

10 Best Female Characters in the MCU

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has not always done justice to women, but recent years have given us some iconic female characters

via Marvel

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has not always been kind to women.

The franchise initially focused pretty exclusively on white men and garnered so much success doing so that their argument for not featuring marginalized groups in more prominent ways was their fear of compromising their fanbase.

However, over the past few years, fans and actors have successfully advocated for films that focus on heroes from marginalized communities and feature them in more prominent, complex roles.

9 of the Biggest Disappointments in "WandaVision"

With the milestone series now wrapped, we look back on revelations that left fans deflated

"Wandavision" finale

Major spoilers below for all of Wandavision.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe's official debut television series, WandaVision, is probably my favorite entry in the entire franchise... for at least half of it. Even with the unenviable responsibility of kicking off phase four of the MCU (reported to consist of over 24 films and television programs), the show delivered a remarkably original premise and well-crafted presentation that stands on its own.
