It’s never felt so good to be bad now that DC Comics is set to unleash the Suicide Squad upon theaters this summer! The idea behind Amanda Waller’s Suicide Squad is simple…assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated super villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. Best of all, fans can now proudly display their love for this despicable team of bad guys in their homes with this epic new series of Suicide Squad Movie Statues by DC Collectibles.
The Suicide Squad Movie Statue Series includes The Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang and Katana. The Blot can’t believe what an amazing job DC Collectibles did with these new Suicide Squad movie statues. They look almost identical to the actors in the film and I love all the little details they included in each character’s costumes. From the still photos and trailers I’ve seen so far, DC perfectly captured each super villain’s appearance in the film.
Each Suicide Squad Movie Statue measures approximately 12” tall and can be pre-ordered now from Entertainment Earth for just $119.99 here. Get one (or all six) before they get you!
Sigh…Warner Brothers ramped up its marketing of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice last weekend, including releasing this super lame #WhoWillWin teaser one sheet movie poster. Honestly, all this hashtag poster did was spark all kinds of jokes and ridicule on Twitter. Well, that and draw unintended attention to Batman and Superman’s codpieces. That couldn’t have been what DC Comics was hoping for, right!?! What terrible placement of a hashtag. They really need to bring in a new marketing team to help promote this film.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premieres in the US on March 25, 2016.
