Suicide squad will make its premiere to both HBO Max and theaters. It is a complete standalone sequel which follows the comic book roots of Harley Quinn and her gang of supervillains, rather than continuing the narrative of the 2016 film. Hopefully this does a better job than the horrific first installment. This sequel is star studded and Warner bros have promised to deliver, not that they have given us a reason to trust them. Regardless it is an exciting time for super hero fans. It is slated for premiere August 6th
Venom: Let There Be Carnage
According to cbr.com The upcoming showdown between two of Spider-Man's most popular and powerful characters will assemble a cast of new and returning actors under an exciting new director, further driving up the excitement for Venom's return to the big screen.
I can not be the only one excited about the return of Tom Hardy as Venom, as he takes on carnage in hopefully a mouth watering super hero adventure. To be released September 24th.
