Suicide Squad is #OutNow - Get to know Your New Favorite Supervillains

Fortunately, the rumors were true. Contracts were indeed signed in September 2014, and the movie was then filmed between April 2015 and August 2015.

In July 2015, a first look was presented at Comic-Con and ultimately leaked to the public. Some attendee illegally recorded footage from the screen and uploaded a bad-quality version online. As a reaction to that, Warner Bros. Pictures released the same footage, but in high quality. The footage, as well as the controversy around the leaking, were further fueling the hype.

In January 2016, Warner Bros. Pictures finally released the official movie trailer, and it went viral AF. It was all over social media, and as of now gained over 57 million views on YouTube alone.

Fast forward! The movie will be released worldwide on August 5 worldwide, respectively on August 4 in Thailand.
