About DCs Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad is like an anti-Avengers group. They are a group of individuals retained to take on and put away bad guys, even though they too are bad buys. They may be bad, but the other ones are eally bad guys. But our anti-heroes have been captured and put in prison. The reason they're working together, according to early film summaries, is to get their prison sentences reduced.

"A secret government agency run by Amanda Waller, named A.R.G.U.S creates a task force comprised of super villains, the "Suicide Squad". They are assigned to execute dangerous tasks in exchange for shorter prison sentences."

I'm not exactly jumping out of my boots about this particular franchise, but the cast in the trailer looks great and I could be surprised. Again. (The first time I was surprised by a title or film I did not care about was Guardians of the Galaxy!)

It's written and directed by David Ayer and his resume includes the action flicks Fury, Training Day, End of Watch and the first The Fast and the Furious. To be honest, in my mind, he has one hell of a resume, making this film look like it has a huge potential.
