The DC Extended Universe may only have one major release in 2021, but it's more than making up for that quantity with hype and anticipation for the next adventure. Director James Gunn will be making the jump from Marvel to DC with The Suicide Squad , which comes in almost three months before he moves back to the MCU to work on two different Guardians of the Galaxy projects.

While there still is only a couple of full trailers for the DCEU's next blockbuster, recently, a new handful of still photos teasing the chaos and mayhem that Gunn and the cast will bring with the self-proclaimed "worst heroes ever" have been unveiled.

With an expectedly massive death toll on the way and a cast full of Hollywood's most unique personalities , the stage is set for the DCEU to bring something truly special to the table.

In his most recent run on social media, Gunn even teased what fans should expect once the credits begin rolling...

Director James Gunn took to Twitter to share a poster for The Suicide Squad three months ahead of its theatrical and streaming debut, which can be seen below:

A fan asked Gunn if there was a post-credits scene for the movie, to which Gunn simply responded "A?" This coy response seems to imply that The Suicide Squad will have at least two scenes after the credits, if not more.

Gunn's Tweet can be seen below:


For those who know James Gunn's history, the director isn't afraid to provide plenty of content and story after his movies come to an end, particularly in the world of comic book movies. After all, he holds the MCU record for the most post-credits scenes in one movie with a whopping five entries in 2017's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 .

While the DCEU may not be as famous for its post-credits teases as the MCU, which has used them since the beginning, this universe has used its fair share of short scenes to tease what's coming in the near future for other films.

This movie's own predecessor, 2016's Suicide Squad , featured Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne speaking with Viola Davis' Amanda Waller about the growing presence of metahumans.

It's still unclear if this movie will be more of a sequel or a reboot , but Gunn already appears to be putting his mark on the franchise through his post-credits work. Whether he breaks his MCU record is still a mystery, but fans should be in for a wild ride even after the team of anti-heroes and villains causes their next round of madness.

The Suicide Squad will premiere in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6, 2021.
