Following the lumbering monster – well, the two lumbering monsters – of Batman v Superman, fans of the DC comic stable were left feeling pretty underwhelmed by the cinematic universe’s new, ponderous direction.
Welp, if you too are thinking this new, gritty realm could use a little bit of levity and, well, excitement, the following news might please you greatly:
Viewers at a super-spesh early screening of Suicide Squad – a film that already looks utterly manic compared to BvS – have reported on social media the flick is an absolute cracker.

#SuicideSquad was the best movie I’ve seen. Just insane. I was skeptical of Cara Delevingne acting but she was pretty good.

So last night, I watched an early screening of #SuicideSquad. 2 words, HARLEY QUINN. She’s crazy good.
