Before you watch James Gunn's The Suicide Squad this week, experience the 2011 Suicide Squad script by Justin Marks! Alex of the Wut Mean Podcast joins us as we dive into the Suicide Squad film that could have happened and ask- is it better than the one we got in 2016?
0:00 Introduction, plus Introducing Alex of the Wut Mean Podcast
Our guest Alex runs two podcasts.

8:48 Suicide Squad: A Brief History
10:46 Introduction: Suicide Squad (2011) by Justin Marks
16:54 Suicide Squad (2011)- What Was In It, Part 1
We discovered after recording that the Blockbuster-like character that Zack was referring to (who used to be a kid) is actually the character of Colin Wilkes/Abuse.
The character that Ben thought Zack was referring to is Menace/Russell Tavaroff who started off as a teenager but, with the Venom offshoot drug Snakebite, became the hulking villain known as Menace to Luke Fox's Batwing.
The Batman: The Brave and the Bold TV version of Blockbuster actually had Mark Desmond as a kid, however, so technically we were ALL right about a kid turning into a Bane-like monster!

1:00:36 Suicide Squad (2011)- What Was In It, Part 2
1:15:04 Closing: Fan Comments and Social Media Shoutouts
This week on the Patreon, we cover Ben's favorite Suicide Squad film, Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay.
Suicide Squad week concludes with our dive into Suicide Squad Hell to Pay. SPOILERS galore. Recorded before we saw the new James Gunn film, Ben dives why this is his favorite Suicide Squad movie (so far) and Andrew talks about why he prefers it way over Assault on Arkham while Zack goes into why he doesn’t. We all go into “our greatest tangent ever” discussing theology and where we go when we die...before we dive into the different supervillains in the movie, as well as the lesser known Hell to Pay SEQUEL comic.
We would only really plan to do a dive into the 2016 Suicide Squad film if Warner Bros. ever released the Ayer Cut, much like we did with the two different cuts of Justice League.
