With all the behind-the-scenes reshuffling following the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it's easy to forget that the next movie in the DC universe is now only two months from release. Suicide Squad hits cinemas on August 5, and a new batch of character posters have been released. Check them out in the gallery below:

These posters aren't the only bit of promotional material to arrive this week. With the Euro 2016 soccer championship kicking off later this month, a new promo aimed at British sports fans has been released. Watch it right here:

Suicide Squad is directed by Fury's David Ayer, and tells the story of a group of death row supervillains who are employed covertly by the US government to perform dangerous missions, in return for reduced prison sentences. It stars Jared Leto as Joker, alongside Will Smith as Deadshot, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

Earlier this week, the Mirror reported that there were plans to include the Suicide Squad in the DC show Arrow, but this was abandoned when the film went into pre-production. Unlike rivals Marvel, DC's TV and film properties do not exist in the same universe, so the team would have been portrayed by different actors.

During a Q&A at the MCM London Comic Con, Arrow star Willa Holland said: "When DC found out they were going to be doing their own movie we had to axe all of the characters before we even got to show them.

"Once they said no, you can't really fight against them for it, because they are the people that gave us a job in the first place. You just have to sit there on your hands, like okay, I get it!"
