Are ‘The Suicide Squad’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ different movies?
Though they have similar titles, “The Suicide Squad” is considered to be a standalone film that takes place after the events of 2016’s “Suicide Squad.”
Certain actors, like Margot Robbie and Viola Davis, reprise their roles in the 2021 film, but other actors, like Jared Leto and Will Smith, do not. Though the new movie references the first, the creators don’t consider it a direct sequel.
The original “Suicide Squad” movie from 2016 is also available on HBO Max, alongside many other DC superhero movies like “Birds of Prey,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and Zack Snyder’s “Justice League.”
In addition to “The Suicide Squad,” you can stream “Space Jam: A New Legacy” while it’s still in theaters. “Space Jam” will remain on HBO Max until August 15.
