Official ‘Suicide Squad’ synopsis released

DC Collectibles announced today that figures based on the Suicide Squad movie characters are coming in 2016, but I didn’t think it was very newsworthy without any photos of the actual products. It turns out, there was some big news buried in that announcement… the official movie synopsis! Here it is:

It feels good to be bad…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. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

DC Collectibles figures based on Jared Leto’s Joker, Will Smith’s Deadshot, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Killer Croc will be available in July for $150 each. More details to come, but for now, enjoy the official Suicide Squad synopsis!
