New Press Release from DC Comics reveals the “WORST OF THE WORST” Super-Villains — the Suicide Squad — will take over San Diego Comic Con this year!
Zack Snyder’s DC Cinematic Universe got started off this March with the Snyder-helmed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as the Ultimate Edition coming up in a few weeks. The next DC film that continues the universe will be directed by David Ayer and exec-produced by Zack Snyder. The film stars Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman and many more A-List names you’d recognize.
The first of the events will be an online Suicide Squad cosplay contest where fans will submit their best costumes. Eleven winners will be chosen by visitors to the site and win an all-expenses paid trip to San Diego Comic Con to take part in all the Suicide Squad events!
- Fans are invited to enter DC All Access’s (DCAA) “Suicide Squad” online Cosplay Contest starting Thursday, June 9, with their best Squad-inspired look as Deadshot, the Joker, Harley Quinn, Colonel Rick Flag, Amanda Waller, Captain Boomerang, Diablo, Killer Croc, Enchantress, Slipknot or Katana.
- Eleven winners, selected by visitors to the site, will then 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.
- Details are now on www.dccomics.com/squadup, Twitter and Instagram.
For Suicide Squad enthusiasts, this next event is a MUST. Hard Rock Cafe will be completely transformed into an interactive Belle Reve Penitentiary with a virtual reality fighting experience alongside the Squad, a photo op opportunity in a jail cell as well as Harley’s Tattoo Parlor to get inked up, previously seen at SXSW and Coachella.
BUST INTO BELLE REVE!
- Every day of the Con, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., have an immersive “Suicide Squad” experience when we 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.
- Take part in a live-action virtual reality experience, fighting alongside Squad members in a scene from the film.
- Get your own “Suicide Squad” skull “ink” at Harley Quinn’s tattoo parlor.
- Take photo ops in a re-creation of one of Belle Reve’s jail cells.
The final event will allow you to meet the cast of the Suicide Squad THEMSELVES as they will be signing at the DC Entertainment booth after their special appearance at the Hall H Panel
GET UP CLOSE WITH THE “SUICIDE SQUAD”
- Catch “Suicide Squad” talent as part of the big Warner Bros. Pictures’ exclusive presentation in Hall H, additional details of which are forthcoming, and connect with them directly at the DC booth, where stars of the film will meet fans and sign movie posters.
- The cast will also make a special ensemble appearance on Saturday, July 23 to tape the Conan O’Brien Show, which will air that evening at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
