Discrete is not how I would describe melodramatically announced chapters trying to cover up the overly self indulgent masochism parade that is the Snyder Cut.

Nevertheless they are organized into discrete chapters to accommodate watching in chunks.

Making a shorter but good movie would have been more effective means to that end.

There's a trailer out for Suicide Squad 2.



And a release date, August 6th, also on HBO Max.

There's a major villain reveal which is a big affirmation for what I think the movie is about. I won't spoil it, but I'm excited.

I already get a sense of Shazam more than I do Justice League, which is a definite point in its favor over the first Suicide Squad. Even Marvel movies have started taking themselves too seriously, this looks like an unapologetic goofy romp. Plus giant sharkmen tearing people in half.

It'll be interesting to see how John Cena does with an action-comedy role--some of his WWE skits suggest he's got a knack for deadpan honour.

At the very least, he's willing to laugh at himself as shown by his embrace of John Cena memes. Stallone still seem to have an issue sometimes with being the butt of the joke, and the trailer devotes a lot of its runtime to him.
