A new logo for James Gunn's upcoming The Suicide Squad goes back to the comic's original roots.
Previously revealed by Gunn himself, the poster unveiled the new cast for the reboot, featuring a few old names along with a bunch of new ones. Along with the new cast came a new, bullet-ridden logo, one that comic book fans will find very familiar.
Fans of the comics will recognize the bullet holes on the new logo from the original Suicide Squad comic book covers. In the poster, the bullet holes are seen on both the title of the film as well as though the names of each respective actor.
The director attached the caption "Don't get too attached" to his post, meaning fans should expect to see some of these stars meet their maker when they suit up for the DC Extended Universe film.
