There will also be an online cosplay contest before the convention. Winners will be flown to San Diego to participate in Suicide Squad-related events. Applications are being accepted at www.dccomics.com/squadup

The studio said in its press release it will transform 6,000 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," the release teased. "Get your own Suicide Squad skull 'ink' at Harley Quinn's tattoo parlor. Take photo ops in a re-creation of one of Belle Reve's jail cells."

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman and Viola Davis. The film is set for theatrical release Aug. 5.
