Now, sure, Suicide Squad looks great and all - and yes, it seems set to be one of the more surprisingly well cast superhero movies we've yet seen hit our screens - but, sadly, there's one thing it hasn't quite managed to do.

Y'see, for all that Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and the rest of the gang look great in their respective roles, there's still one thing missing - one element that would've made the movie even more gloriously fan-pleasing.

The Suicide Squad aren't characters from the 1990s' Batman: The Animated Series, and that is always a fundamental problem. Thankfully, though, intrepid DeviantArtist James Strecker (a.k.a. JTSEntertainment) has set out to solve that particular problem...

And lo:

The Suicide Squad Cast Get Animated

And it's AWESOME.

Especially when you directly compare it to the original movie image...

The best part, though? Strecker didn't stop there. We also now have some fantastic glimpses of just what Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would have looked like had it been made in the '90s as an animated movie, including:

Wonder Woman

Captured in all her glory, about to punch the crap out of something/one...

...just like in the Batman v Superman trailer.

Sad Batman

Or, rather, sad Bruce Wayne, but honestly, who's counting?

Plus, the addition of the extra space where Robin's costume should be basically just doubles down on the heartbreak...

And, of course, there's:

The Holy Trinity

As, of course, inspired by those dark and gloomy promo posters...

...though admittedly with a much shinier look to them.

The end result?

I now very much want to see Batman v Superman: The Animated Movie.

Nicely played, Mr. Strecker. Nicely played...

What do you think, though?
