"Suicide Squad" hits theaters this week, and Spencer's in malls everywhere are primed and ready to deliver a slew of villain-themed merchandise to a whole new generation of Deadshot, El Diablo, Joker and, of course, Harley Quinn fans.
Spencer's "Suicide Squad" products are nothing if not diverse, including everything from the mundane like posters and t-shirts, to the striking: a Harley Quinn bodysuit, seatbelt belts, an exclusive Joker replica jacket and a choker that reads "PUDDIN." If you've been a diehard "Suicide Squad" fan for years, now is your time to shine.
Cosplayers on a budget might be interested in the plethora of Harley Quinn costume parts available, with everything from a jogger set to a satin robe. A variety of socks help to complete the sideshow killer clown look, which is probably what you should be striving for if you're looking for authenticity.
There are, of course, non-clothing items. Cups, mugs and water bottles are readymade for kitchens and a set of watches, one depicting the Joker and the other Harley Quinn, make for a great "his and hers" anniversary accessory, or a really weird way to ask someone to prom.
"Suicide Squad" is an adaptation of a comic series by the same name in which DC Comics villains are secretly released and set to work by the government. The upcoming movies debuts in theaters on August 5, 2016, is directed by David Ayer and stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto.
