Thinking about the Suicide Squad trailer and post-9/11 super hero movies.

If I were a media studies professor, I’d be writing a book about how post-9/11 super-hero movies are how America is digesting the attacks and the ensuing wars and politics. In some cases, they are highlighting who they think can save us from catastrophe and how.

Most are in some way about the towers falling – dust in the air, buildings falling, people running. This one might be kinda/sorta be about Guantanamo. I am intrigued.
