DC Releases New "Suicide Squad" Synopsis

A new, official synopsis for the upcoming "Suicide Squad" film has been released, via DC Comics' March 2016 solicitations. The text accompanied the listing of a line of new "Suicide Squad" statues advance-solicited for July 2016, and CBR News has confirmed with Warner Bros. that the synopsis is official.

Here's the text:

It feels good to be bad...Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, 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?"

Featuring DC characters including Deadshot (played by Will Smith) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and directed by David Ayer, "Suicide Squad" is scheduled for release on Aug. 5, 2016.
