Ahead of the San Diego Comic-Con next month, Warner Bros. has unveiled their plans to cover the Con in their upcoming villain-themed action movie and revealed that fans can win a trip to the convention! Check out the details below.
Starting today, DC All Access is starting a Suicide Squad Cosplay Contest online where the best Squad-inspired costumes, as chosen by visitors to the site, will receive an all-expenses-paid trip for four days and three nights to San Diego and passes to the Con, where they will take part in a range of Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad activities throughout the weekend. Fans can choose to dress up as Deadshot, the Joker, Harley Quinn, Colonel Rick Flag, Amanda Waller, Captain Boomerang, Diablo, Killer Croc, Enchantress, Slipknot or Katana for the contest.

In addition, every day of the Con, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., WB will transform 6000 square feet of San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel into the infamous Belle Reve penitentiary—the very place where the “worst of the worst” were incarcerated before forming the Suicide Squad. At the pop-up fans can take part in a live-action virtual reality experience, fighting alongside Squad members in a scene from the film, get their own Suicide Squad skull “ink” at Harley Quinn’s tattoo parlor and take photo ops in a re-creation of one of Belle Reve’s jail cells.
The cast of Suicide Squad will be present for WB’s Hall H panel as well and will also make a special ensemble appearance on Saturday, July 23, to tape CONAN, which will air that evening at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
Suicide Squad stars Will Smith (The Pursuit of Happyness, Focus) as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop, Easy Money) as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (Divergent, The Water Diviner) as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne (Anna Karenina) as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El DIablo, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Jared Leto as The Joker. There’s also mystery roles for Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Raymond Olubowale, Alex Meraz, Jim Parrack, and Common.
The film opens worldwide in 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters beginning August 5, 2016.
