There are Suicide Squad spoilers in here! You’ve been warned. Politely warned, that is. Not like, Amanda Waller “you’re in for it” kind of warned.
I’ve seen David Ayer’s Suicide Squad twice now. Say what you will about the movie, but I had a great time during both viewings. I’ve had a full weekend to really absorb Suicide Squad, and now I’m left thinking about where Warner Bros. and DC could go next with the cinematic version of Task Force X. There’s a lot I’d love to see, but I’ll be practical and stick to four requests. After you’ve read what I’d like to see in a potential Suicide Squad sequel, you’re obviously welcome to chime in with your own suggestions – you know, assuming they aren’t silly like, “Make a better movie.” Be constructive with your criticism, people!
Note: this article is assuming Harley Quinn will be back in Belle Reve by the time a potential sequel rolls around, and that Joker received plenty of attention in the Batman solo movie.

The Suicide Squad is one of the coolest concepts in all of comics. An elite group of crooks and convicts forced to the dirty work for the government. It combines the thrills of The Dirty Dozen with the guilty pleasure of focusing on the villains of the DC Universe. David Ayer’s film adaptation had a lot of hype to live up to, both from the comic book community and the summer blockbuster crowd. Luckily, Suicide Squad not only lives up to the hype, it surpasses it in many ways. It is a strong entry in the emerging DC Cinematic Universe and exposes fans new and old to some of the best villains that DC has to offer.
After a whole lot of anticipation, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad has finally arrived! Some of the employees here at Midtown Comics legitimately enjoyed the film and now they want to explain why! Above, we have a video review, and below we’ll provide links to our other reviews of the film.
