Japanese release of Suicide Squad gets artist Beatars poster
Beast Complex and Beastars creator Paru Itagaki creates an illustrated poster for the Japanese release of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
The beasts designer Paru Itagaki has made a new poster for James Gunn’s Japanese release The suicide squad. As an autonomous follow-up to that of David Ayer Suicide Squad (2016), Gunn’s Task Force X brings back characters like Amanda Waller, Rick Flag, and Harley Quinn while introducing newcomers like Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Ratcatcher 2, Polka-Dot Man, King Shark, and a slew of hilarious eccentrics. Since its release on HBO Max and in theaters, the film has earned a solid Rotten Tomatoes score, gaining 91% of critics and 83% of audiences.
Having been released under unique conditions, The suicide squad disappointed at the box office with only $ 26. 5 million in its opening weekend. 2.8 million homes are said to have aired the film on HBO Max on its first weekend rather than going to the movies amid COVID-19 and the Delta variant. The suicide squad opened in Japan on August 13 and has since made 390 million yen in the region compared to the first Suicide Squadof 1.76 billion in revenues (global). Again, this drop in income is likely due to the pandemic discouraging people from going to the movies. What this means for Warner Bros./DC Films’ release strategy and the future of DC Extended Universe is one to guess. Either way, the outrageous and R-rated The suicide squad captivated many.
Japanese manga artist Itagaki created promotional artwork for the Japanese release of The suicide squad (Going through Manga Mogura RE). Itagaki said she was “captivated by the [film’s] unique villains”And I loved watching them go wild. His poster shows both Harley Quinn and King Shark in their element. Check it out below:

With guardians of the galaxy‘s Groot and Rocket and The suicide squad ‘s King Shark, Gunn established a penchant for adapting endearing anthropomorphic characters. That said, it’s no surprise that WB is reaching out to Itagaki, who also has an affinity for creatures some might call monsters. Itagaki created, wrote and illustrated the manga The beasts and Beast complex, exploring a world populated by anthropomorphic animals with high tensions between carnivores and herbivores. Beast complex ran for the first time Shōnen Weekly Champion from 2016 to 2019 before serializing Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shōnen Champion from September 2016 to October 2020. The The beasts The series was recently licensed by Netflix, received positive reviews, and is now entering its third season.
Itagaki-style costumes The suicide squad. As Itagaki’s illustration continues to go viral, WB may turn to her for future DCEU promotional material. Gunn’s foray into the universe is far from over as The suicide squadthe post-credits scene set up its Peacemaker The HBO Max show is slated to arrive in 2022. The writer / director has also teased more spin-offs that may or may not be in development.
