Villainy is about to pay off big. It’s almost time to watch The Suicide Squad online and in theaters. It’s a quasi-sequel, quasi-reboot of the 2016 film of the same name.
The Suicide Squad release date and time
The Suicide Squad 2021 opens in theaters Thursday, August 5. It’s available to stream HBO Max that day, starting at 7 p.m. ET.
DC scored by landing director James Gunn of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. And judging by a sampling of early The Suicide Squad reviews, his version is going to be much more well-liked by fans and critics alike.
The Suicide Squad 2021 brings back some of the cast members from the first film, including Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag. They welcome a bunch of new faces: Idris Elba as Bloodsport, John Cena as Peacemaker and Sylvester Stallone as King Shark.
These super-villains join Waller’s Task Force X for the chance at freedom. Waller assembles a team, arms them and drops them on island of Corto Maltese. Their mission? To search and destroy the militant guerilla forces on the ground. Of course, if they make one wrong move and attempt to betray the team, they’re dead.
