Warner Bros. Pictures recently released the final trailer for its highly anticipated villainous hero film and with it, a series of pop art style Suicide Squad posters that pay tribute to each of the characters.

With a cast that's built from some of Hollywood's biggest names and an action-filled plot with the just the right amount of humor, the film, along with the Ghostbusters remake, is one of the most talked about of the summer.

Warner Bros. has kept the majority of its trailers short to generate more excitement among its fans, only teasing a few action segments in its final promotion. Though the company has released Suicide Squad posters before, its new illustrated renditions pay tribute to the comic book theme by intermingling the portraits of the stars with vibrant cartoon backgrounds and retro comic book phrases.
