Terrible people are brought together to work as a team… but enough about the hosts of this podcast.
With the upcoming release of Wonder Woman we look at an earlier DC Extended Universe film, Suicide Squad.
DC had just released the dour Batman V Superman: Yawn Of Justice, which was heavily criticised for it's dark tone, while it’s great rival Marvel had success with Guardians Of The Galaxy, a super quippy ensemble film featuring reluctant heroes. Reluctant, third-tier, not famous heroes….
What was DC to do with their own not famous reluctant hero ensemble flick?
In this episode:
