THE SUICIDE SQUAD director James Gunn shares a series of stunning DC Comics tie covers
We are still a few months away from the release of The suicide squad, but DC Comics is starting to promote the R-rated requel with a series of linked covers, and director James Gunn has now taken to Twitter to share a first look.
Artwork will adorn the covers of future titles such as Batman, Infinite Frontier, blue and gold and Catwoman, and spotlight the renditions of several different artists of this new incarnation of Task Force X. The likes of Harley Quinn, King Shark, and Peacemaker seem to be the most prominent, but just about every member of the team makes a appearance.
There are 11 covers in total, and you can check them out by clicking on the thread below.

“Welcome to Hell – aka Bell Reve, A’s highest-fatality prison in the United States. Where the worst super-villains are kept and where they’ll do anything to get out – even join the super-secret, super -louche Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die mission? Collect a collection of drawbacks including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and Favorite Psychopath of them all, Harley Quinn. and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. “
Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrillas at every turn, the squad is on a search and destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave … and the technicians of the government of Amanda Waller to their ears, following their every move. And as always, one wrong move and they are dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself) . If someone places bets, the smart money is against them. Them. “
We recently discovered that the film was officially rated R for “strong violence and poise, language throughout, some sexual references, drug use, and brief graphic nudity.”
The suicide squad is scheduled to premiere on HBO Max and in theaters August 6.
