The first look at James Gunn's The Suicide Squad is coming to DC FanDome later this month. Tuesday afternoon, the filmmaker confirmed on Twitter that he's bringing a "glimpse" of the movie during his panel at the DC-only virtual convention. The fan-favorite director also said he'd be continuing to promote the event on social media, touting the other exciting information outside of the movie he's helming.
"I can confirm #TheSuicideSquad is 100%, zero interference, no-holds-barred ME, &, again, I can't wait for you guys to get a glimpse of it at #DCFanDome," Gunn tweeted in response to a fan. "Yes, I'm pimping FanDome a lot, but that's because I know how exciting it's going to be - for my film & other stuff too!"

In a separate tweet, Gunn added that the movie is still holding strong for its August releasing date next year, saying "Nothing about #TheSuicideSquad has changed either. We will be ready for our release on August 6, 2021. Until then, you can come see us at #DCFanDome at the end of this month to see lots of cool stuff!"
FanDome is to take place Saturday, August 22nd and will feature creators from all facets of DC Comics, including film, television, comics, animation, video games, and more.

With DC FanDome, we’re able to give fans from around the world an exciting and unparalleled way to connect with all their favorite DC characters, as well as the incredible talent who bring them to life on the page and screen."
