It is now officially confirmed that the Suicide Squad will appear on Arrow and an air date has been released.
The Suicide Squad name has its earliest roots in Silver Age DC Comics, but this team owes its inspiration to the more modern take introduced by writer John Ostrander in 1987’s DC Legends #3. The latest “Suicide Squad” ongoing series launched in September 2011 as part of DC’s New 52 relaunch and is scheduled to wrap in April with issue #30.
Suicide Squad, which had been hinted at, rumored, and talked about, is now officially announced to appear on Arrow. The episode will air March 19th at 8 pm.
The book, DC Legends #3 has been selling really well since the rumor started, but will probably move up more closer and after the air date. Copies do start at .99 cents US and .43 cents Canada on eBay. Might be time to secure a copy if you haven’t done so already.
