New ‘Suicide Squad’ Concept Art Is Way More Stunning Than the Movie

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

There was a lot wrong with Suicide Squad, but visually it was one of DC’s more adventurous offerings, setting it apart from its predecessors Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman. It couldn’t quite get away from the rainy, dingy, dark Zack Snyder aesthetic, but gosh darn it, they tried to put some pops of color into the DC cinematic universe. Today, some very cool concept art has surfaced ahead of the film’s video release, showcasing how imaginative a lot of the initial character designs were — especially for Enchantress — before all the artists were probably informed that they could use any color they want, provided the color was between dark gray and darker gray.

Katana’s SDCC Exclusive Gives High Hopes for DC Super Hero Girls’ Second Semester [Review]

DC Super Hero Girls Katana (SDCC Exclusive)

Now that the DC Super Hero Girls toy line has expanded beyond its soft launch home of Target, more of those academic heroes are finding their way to stores around the world. For now, despite releasing new figures in the line, the primary waves still consists of the same characters that have been available since the spring. Though Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Bumblebee and the rest are all great, the cast of DC Super Hero Girls is so expansive it's a shame it's taking so long to get more of them released.

We got our first glimpse at one of the "second semester" releases at San Diego Comic-Con in Katana, who was offered as a deluxe exclusive at the show. Though her actual mass market figure won't see shelves until 2017 --- and it'll be a bit more barebones than this version --- Katana's debut in the line is impressive, and shows there's a lot of promise to still explore in the DC Super Hero Girl Universe.

This is the gallery you want to look at when you're feeling bad. This is the best Suicide Squad fan art.

DC Super Hero Girls’ Katana Gets Stunning SDCC Exclusive Figure

Mattel

It's not a big secret that we're fans of Mattel's and DC's DC Super Hero Girls. The line's first wave hit retail in limited release, but has been performing so well, Warner Bros. and DC Comics' Diane Nelson believes it could soon be a $1 billion brand all on its own. This July the release of DC Super Hero Girls expands beyond the limitations of Target stores worldwide, and will even add in a number of new products beyond the dolls, figures and roleplay gear. But there's another reason to be excited about DC Super Hero Girls in July, and her name is Katana.

Announced today, Katana will be the first DC Super Hero Girls exclusive figure offered at San Diego Comic-Con. Unlike the first run of dolls, Katana will get the deluxe treatment, adding a number of accessories to the package, as well as a specially designed display box unique to this iteration of the character.

Funko Announces More ‘Suicide Squad’ Collectibles Than Any Prison Could Hold

Funko
Funko

I've heard it said there are few definitives in life beyond death and taxes, but you can probably throw Funko making Pops of something in there really soon, if you haven't already. The company's reach far exceeds what I'm sure anyone expected from Funko when the Pops first appeared as Funko Force 2.0 at San Diego Comic-Con 2010. In just six years, the Pop line has multiplied exponentially, and it seems that Funko can hardly even keep up with the demand. That doesn't stop 'em from trying though, as you can hardly make it through a day without Funko announcing at least one new property joining the fold.

While we did know Suicide Squad collectibles were in the works, we didn't really have an idea of just how far Funko's rabbit hole went when it came to the upcoming Warner Bros. film based on the DC Comics characters. Needless to say, if you like Harley Quinn and the Joker, as portrayed by Margot Robbie and Jared Leto respectively, then you are going to have a lot of little deformed versions of those characters to buy this year.

Mike W. Barr On ‘Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Katana And Deadshot’ [Interview]

Katana00

As you've probably already heard, there's a Suicide Squad movie on the way, and that means that the spotlight is once again falling onto some of DC's most ruthless villains-turned-government operatives. But in addition to longtime Squad mainstays like Deadshot and Harley Quinn, one other character is getting ready for a turn on the big screen: Katana, the modern samurai created by Mike W. Barr and Jim Aparo for Batman and the Outsiders.

To that end, DC has announced Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Katana and Deadshot, a double-sized six-issue miniseries featuring two stories, including a new adventure with Katana and the Squad taking on Kobra by Barr and artist Diogenes Neves. To find out more, I spoke to Barr about creating Katana, returning to the character after so long, and how he thinks she's going to fit in with her new team.

Leaked ‘Suicide Squad’ Comic-Con Trailer Now Available in HD

suicide-squad-comic-con-trailer-pic

This past weekend at Comic-Con, fans attending the Batman vs. Superman panel were treated to an additional surprise: the entire cast of Suicide Squad appeared on stage (minus Jared Leto) and introduced our first ever look at footage from the upcoming supervillain film. Despite their pleas to not record any of the footage, someone of course did, and it leaked online shortly thereafter in a really crappy quality. Well, director David Ayer and Warner Bros. feel your pain and have decided to do the right thing and just release the whole trailer online.
