Clearly, Polka-Dot Man will be the MVP of Suicide Squad

 DC released a video yesterday for James Gunn's upcoming Suicide Squad movie showing off who all the members of that team will be.

I like to think that DC Comics opened their entire archive to James Gunn and told him to take his pick of characters to use in The Suicide Squad and he was just like "Yeah, lemme have Polka-Dot Man, Ratcatcher 2, and Weasel."

But in all seriousness, I love that he went that route and loaded the roster with lesser known characters. That's exactly what DC and Warner needs to do: mine that IP goldmine called DC Comics and take risks with lesser known characters. The Arrowverse has shown that that can be winning strategy. The MCU has likewise proven it too.

And if you think Polka-Dot Man is a weird character, just remember DC also has Condiment King, Crazy Quilt, and Ten-Eyed Man, among others.
