James Gunn Insists The Suicide Squad Isn't a Sequel, Even Though It 'Kinda' Is

Much as Warner Bros. might not want to admit it, David Ayers’ Suicide Squad is a stunningly bad—though ambitious—narrative flop of a film that it has to take credit for.

New ‘The Suicide Squad’ Poster Reveals Funky Logos for All the Characters (Most of Whom Will Probably Die)

James Gunn knows what’s important in a superhero movie. It’s not the villains, it’s not the action, it’s not the story. It’s the branding. (I’m kidding, by the way.) But Gunn sure has knocked it out of the park with the marketing teases for The Suicide Squad, with brightly colored ’70s exploitation-inspired posters that give a real feeling for the flashy approach Gunn will take with his follow-up to David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad. And the director has released a new The Suicide Squad poster re...
