Suicide Squad is all set to reign mayhem at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Not only will you be able to find Suicide Squad on the Hall H stage as part of the big WB panel, but they’ll also signing posters at the DC booth, making a special appearance on Saturday, July 23 on Conan – and also holding a costume contest to give eleven lucky winners an all-expenses paid trip to San Diego Comic-Con 2016.

Plus, the August 5 film is also taking over 6000 square feet of the Hard Rock Hotel, to transform it into the infamous Belle Reve penitentiary, home to the “worst of the worst”. Here, you’ll be able to enjoy a virtual reality experience to fight alongside Squad members, get your own Suicide Squad tattoo at Harley Quinn’s tattoo parlor (and you can read about the same tattoo parlor’s setup at SXSW), and take special photo-ops in a recreation of one of Belle Reve’s jail cells.

Here’s an overview of what to expect from Suicide Squad at this year’s Comic-Con:

SQUAD UP!

  • Fans are invited to enter DC All Access’s (DCAA) “Suicide Squad” online Cosplay Contest starting Thursday, June 9, with their best Squad-inspired look as Deadshot, the Joker, Harley Quinn, Colonel Rick Flag, Amanda Waller, Captain Boomerang, Diablo, Killer Croc, Enchantress, Slipknot or Katana.
  • Eleven winners, selected by visitors to the site, will then 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.

BUST INTO BELLE REVE!

  • Every day of the Con, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., have an immersive “Suicide Squad” experience when we 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.
  • Take part in a live-action virtual reality experience, fighting alongside Squad members in a scene from the film.
  • Get your own “Suicide Squad” skull “ink” at Harley Quinn’s tattoo parlor.

GET UP CLOSE WITH THE “SUICIDE SQUAD”

  • The cast 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.
