James Gunn has had a roller coaster ride over the last few years. The popular filmmaker will finally return to theatres with “The Suicide Squad,” after being dismissed from Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” then recruited by Warner Bros, then re-hired for “Guardians.” Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad” is a semi-sequel, semi-reboot to David Ayer’s critically panned 2016 picture, and it assembles its own, zanier task force of jailed supervillains, this time entrusted with destroying a Nazi facility — only to run into “huge alien starfish” levels of trouble.
Many of the characters from Ayer’s picture, such as Deadshot, Killer Croc, and Katana, will be absent from Gunn’s rendition of this comic book bad guy team, while others, like as Harley Quinn, will return (Margot Robbie). Bloodsport (Idris Elba), the loud and jingoistic killer Peacemaker (John Cena), the Thinker (Peter Capaldi), Ratcatcher II (Daniela Melchior), computer hacker Savant (Michael Rooker), the utterly ridiculous Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian), and a giant… uh, talking shark known as King Shark are among the new Task Force X members (Sylvester Stallone).

This August, “The Suicide Squad” will be released in theatres. What if, on the other hand, you wish to dodge the epidemic and witness it at home? While many new films are gradually returning to the traditional paradigm of a theatrical window, “The Suicide Squad” will be released simultaneously. Here’s the best method to watch the movie right now from the comfort of your own home.
For a month, you can watch The Suicide Squad on HBO Max.
“The Suicide Squad” will be released in cinemas on August 6th, however, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the film will also be available on HBO Max.
As long as you have an HBO Max subscription, you may view the movie on your television, laptop, or iPad. “The Suicide Squad,” on the other hand, will only be available on the site for 31 days, after which it will be removed from the service until after a specific length of time in cinemas (via Indie Wire). Following this period, the film will be available on streaming sites and in theatres. This dual distribution approach between cinemas and HBO Max will be used for the whole Warner Bros. picture slate in 2021.
Is August 6th still too far away for you? Meanwhile, HBO Max has a number of DC films and episodes to watch, including the 2016 blockbuster “Suicide Squad” and a “Justice League” episode starring characters from the Suicide Squad. If you’re wanting to see more of the characters after “The Suicide Squad,” worry not: the spin-off program “Peacemaker,” starring Cena, will launch on HBO Max in 2022.
