Originally created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru back in 1959, the group was retooled into its current iteration by John Ostrander in 1989. The team has included countless DC villains (and heroes) among its ranks throughout the years. It’s also been a staple of recent DC media, “Arrow” introduced their own version of the team in the most recent season of the series and the recent animated film, Batman: Assault on Arkham, offered another version of the team.
Written and directed by Ayer, Suicide Squad is setting up shop in Toronto, Canada at their Pinewood extension. Following two months of pre-production, the film will shoot from April until September for a planned August 5, 2016 release.
