Warner Bros. has unveiled their plans to cover the Con in their upcoming villain-themed action movie and revealed that fans can win a trip to the convention! Check out the details below.
Starting today, DC All Access is starting a Suicide Squad Cosplay Contest online where the best Squad-inspired costumes, as chosen by visitors to the site, will receive an all-expenses-paid trip for four days and three nights to San Diego and passes to the Con, where they will take part in a range of Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad activities throughout the weekend. Fans can choose to dress up as Deadshot, the Joker, Harley Quinn, Colonel Rick Flag, Amanda Waller, Captain Boomerang, Diablo, Killer Croc, Enchantress, Slipknot or Katana for the contest.

In addition, every day of the Con, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., WB will transform 6000 square feet of San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel into the infamous Belle Reve penitentiary—the very place where the “worst of the worst” were incarcerated before forming the Suicide Squad. At the pop-up fans can take part in a live-action virtual reality experience, fighting alongside Squad members in a scene from the film, get their own Suicide Squad skull “ink” at Harley Quinn’s tattoo parlor and take photo ops in a re-creation of one of Belle Reve’s jail cells. The cast of Suicide Squad will be present for WB’s Hall H panel as well and will also make a special ensemble appearance on Saturday, July 23, to tape CONAN, which will air that evening at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
