David Ayer has officially revealed that post-production work on Suicide Squad has finally been completed. The director made the announcement on his personal Twitter page right after debunking a recent rumor about the runtime of the highly anticipated movie, meaning that we’re now one giant step closer to its release. Here’s the tweet:

The actual runtime of Suicide Squad will be revealed within the next two months. The movie will have a presence at San Diego Comic-Con this July, so I’m guessing that’s when the final trailer will be released. Rumor has it that there will be a screening of the movie at the event, so expect plenty of reactions from a few lucky fans afterwards.

“It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?”

Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Adam Beach, Cara Delevingne and Viola Davis, Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
