In just under two months, Warner Bros. will finally unleash Suicide Squad in theaters, but next month, this comic book adaptation is expected to have a big presence at the annual San Diego Comic Con convention. While we won't know for sure if Warner Bros.is holding a panel or a screening of this highly-anticipated movie until closer to the date, the studio unveiled a number of merchandise items that will be available for fans to purchase at SDCC next month. Among these items is what may be the "worst" Joker (Jared Leto) costume of all time.
USA Today has the first look at these items, with the Joker costume most likely set to be a hot seller. The costume includes a shirt with fake chains drawn on it, along with a purple Joker coat, fake teeth and, of course, the iconic green wig. It seems that this villain's tattoo artwork won't come included with the costume. There will also be a full Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) Halloween costume for sale at SDCC, which includes a colorful jacket, "Daddy's Little Monster" t-shirt, "Puddin" necklace and a pair of spiked bracelets.
Other merchandise revealed includes a Katana (Karen Fukuhara) DC Super Hero Girls action figure ($40), a Mattel action figure set featuring the Joker and his henchman known as Panda Man ($40), and a Harley Quinn Hot Wheels set ($25). We're sure there will be much more Suicide Squad merchandise unveiled between now and San Diego Comic Con, so stay tuned. This comic book adaptation is set to hit theaters August 5, which could be the last blockbuster this summer, going up against The Founder and Nine Lives.
This summer, Super Villains will take over in the highly anticipated big screen action adventure Suicide Squad, marking the theatrical debut of some of the most beloved bad guys in the DC Universe, including Deadshot, Harley Quinn}, Killer Croc, Katana and Enchantress, and bringing back to the big screen one of the most dangerous villains of all time, The Joker. The Super-Villains will unite in an action-packed adventure that will have moviegoers on the edge of their seats with Suicide Squad. From director David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch) comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness), Oscar winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix's House of Cards) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Doubt).
It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, 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? Take a look at this god awful Joker costume along with the rest of the merch.
