This month is shaping up to be one of the most massive in recent memory for the DC Extended Universe and its wide-reaching fan base. The virtual event is set to be the home of numerous major announcements pertaining to the future of the DCEU, which is set to begin releasing seven brand new confirmed films at the end of 2020.
While the franchise only has one movie releasing this year, 2021 is set to bring two of the most highly anticipated movies in recent memory with Matt Reeves' The Batman and James Gunn's The Suicide Squad. As fans wait for more concrete news on both blockbusters, an exciting tease has just been released by one of the DCEU's newest directors...
In a new post on Twitter, director James Gunn celebrated his birthday today by releasing new official title cards for his upcoming DCEU movie, The Suicide Squad. The images show the movie's title in English, Portugese, Spanish and Japanese, and Gunn also added that he and the movie's cast have "so much more to show you guys" when DC FanDome arrives on August 22.
Gunn's full tweet can be seen below:

WHAT THIS MEANS
James Gunn continues to prove what a master he is at hyping up crowds and building anticipation for his movies, which has gone to a whole new level ever since he joined the superhero movie universe. With DC FanDome only two and a half weeks away, and considering how little is known thus far about The Suicide Squad, even the new title cards alone are sure to get the fans going and stir up conversations about what information is soon to come.
The new film is still one year away from its imminent release in theaters even with filming completed and Gunn making major headway in post-production. The cast alone has already sent fans into a frenzy not only by bringing back stars from the original film like Margot Robbie and Viola Davis, but also including more of the biggest names in Hollywood like John Cena, Taika Waititi, Idris Elba and so many more.
The Suicide Squad is set to premiere in theaters on August 6, 2021, and more information about the movie is set to be revealed at the DC FanDome event on August 22, 2020.
