Here's the first big San Diego Comic-Con news leading up to the pop culture event next month. Warner Bros. is bringing SUICIDE SQUAD which will be well represented all over SDCC and in the Gaslamp District with a big Hall H presentation, offsite fun at the Hard Rock Hotel, a cast appearance on Conan, a costume contest and more!

Here's the important info from the official press release:

BURBANK, CA, June 9, 2016 – In anticipation of the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures’ high-octane actioner “Suicide Squad,” heading into theaters everywhere on August 5, DC’s massive team of Super-Villains will invade this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego with a major presence both on and off the main floor, including appearances by the film’s stars.

Highlights of the convention’s “Suicide Squad” events include:

  • 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, Twitter and Instagram.


  • 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. [Editor Note: Just like at SXSW earlier this year! Click to read more.]
  • Take photo ops in a re-creation of one of Belle Reve’s jail cells.


  • 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 “CONAN,” which will air that evening at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
