Suicide Squad Gets Watchmen-Inspired Opening Sequence in New Fan Video

Zack Snyder’s film adaptation of “Watchmen” has long been polarizing for fans of the renown comic book series, but there seems to be at least one consensus among viewers: the film’s memorable opening sequence is pretty kick-ass. YouTuber chris banks seemed to take that to heart for his latest video, in which he created a new opening sequence for the similarly mixed “Suicide Squad.”

The fan video slows things way down for Task Force X. Though it doesn’t have the same still-frame feel as “Watchmen,” this new take on the “Suicide Squad” opening sequence has a quieter, calmer feel to it than the one that appeared in the film. In that, it captures the mood of “Watchmen” opening sequence, if not the exact technique. Additionally, this fan video replaces “Suicide Squad’s” chaotic neon letters with “Watchmen’s” signature yellow block text.

Appropriately, this “Suicide Squad” fan video swaps Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are a Changin'” out for “I Started a Joke” by the Bee Gees, which seems to be a suitable replacement considering that the video focuses much of its time on the Joker’s history with Harley Quinn.

The film is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD.
