DC Comics and Warner Bros. hope fans love Suicide Squad so much, they want to celebrate the movie into next year. The latest DCEU saga, which hits theaters in August, is getting its own 2017 calendar, and we have your first look. This cool piece of merchandise comes packed with plenty of never-before-seen photos and art work. And it will surely be a must have for fans.
Today, we get to see the front and back cover of the Suicide Squad calendar. The cover gives us a cool new shot of the entire super villain team. The back cover gives us a sneak peek at all 12 pages, featuring never-before-seen images of your favorite characters. We also get to see two pages from the Calendar itself. The first features the iconic pairing of Harley Quinn and The Joker, as played by Margot Robbie and Jared Leto. The second page offers a fresh look at Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's Killer Croc.
In the calendar itself, we get three group shots. These arrive with individual character pages for Will Smith's Deadshot, Jai Courtney's Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman's Rick Flag, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. Also getting their own individual character pages are Cara Delevingne's Enchantress and Karen Fukuhara's Katana. While Harley Quinn gets an individual character page, The Joker doesn't. He has to share his two pages with Harley, with the clown prince of crime also included on the special bonus page, which includes the final four months of 2016, so you can enjoy the calendar this year as well.
The Suicide Squad calendar is arriving in stores this July. The sneak peek comes courtesy of Amazon. Here is their official description of the product.

This past weekend, Warner Bros. held a special advanced screening of Suicide Squad. And it apparently went over like gangbusters with the crowd in attendance. One of the more recent episodes of The Big Bang Theory even showed Leonard and Howard attending this screening on the Warner Bros. lot where the show is shot. Though we didn't get to hear those fictional characters' review, the real people in attendance called the movie 'perfect' and 'breathtaking'. Both Will Smith's Deadshot and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn have been called out as scene stealers in these early reactions. And Warner Bros. appears to know this, as they have officially announced a standalone Harley Quinn movie is coming before the end of this decade. As we get closer to the first movie's premiere this August, take a look at the latest images.
