“Suicide Squad” — a WB tide-turner, or a death-knell for comic book pictures?

It’s derivative, it’s dark, it’s jokey and bloody. And it’s an August comic book movie release. So, “Guardians of the Galaxy” or…something less?

Will Smith is the biggest name in it, re-teamed with Margot Robbie, it turns out. Jared Leto you’ve been seeing still-shots of.

There’s been some barbed discussion of the vintage music used in the trailer — mimicking the “Guardians” formula.

I don’t know. Not seeing anything new, but Smith handles this sort of joke/serious comic violence well (“Hancock”). August 5.
