The Suicide Squad trailer, recreated in the DC Animated Universe

Worst of the worst of the worst, sir

Suicide Squad has been holding fans riveted since the first footage of it hit the web (or maybe even when the first pictures of Jared Leto as a tattooed Joker hit).

And speaking of tatted-up Joker, part of the reason that Suicide Squad hype has not slowed down in the intervening months is that the production has made some wild choices, in design and tone. For once, it seems like Warner Bros. is producing a DC Comics movie that isn't retreading tropes and hero arcs we've already seen a dozen times in previously released superhero films. But the question remains: Will Suicide Squad ultimately fly at the box office, or will it trip on those wild choices and fall flat on its inked-up face?

Who knows? But with that kind of attention from fans, combining Suicide Squad with footage from Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited and other fan-beloved shows in the DC Animated Universe can't go wrong.

The next level of puzzles.
