The official novelization of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad has been announced, and the book, which is priced at $7.99, will be released via paperback and Kindle formats on August 9, 2016, just a few days after Ayer’s film hits theaters.
Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization, is written by Marv Wolfman, published by Titan Books, and runs at 320 pages. Author Wolfman has also written official novelizations of the film Superman Returns and the video game Arkham Knight, and also wrote the comic book crossover series Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016, and is written and directed by David Ayer, who also wrote the crime-drama thriller Training Day (2001), and wrote and directed the action-drama war film Fury (2014).
