By now you’ve almost certainly trawled through Twitter and watched blurry covert footage of the Suicide Squad that director David Ayer unveiled at Comic-Con. But stop your searching because Warner Bros. and DC Comics have come good and delivered us a full blown HD trailer… and boy it looks good!
First thing’s first, we are incredibly excited as to how well Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn seems to be translating to the big screen. She looks striking, iconic and, as this is Margot Robbie, incredibly sexy.
While we weren’t so sure about Jared Leto taking on the Joker so relatively soon after Heath Ledger redefined the role, we have to say we’re encouraged. He looks menacing and completely engrossing.
Plot-wise not too much is given away other than stuff we already knew/assumed: the Suicide Squad are a bunch of likeable bad-guys who get put together by people in authority to save the day from bad things. If they fail, they’ll take the fall.
The film also stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Karen Fukuhara as Katana as well as Scott Eastwood, Kim Parrack, Ike Barinholtz, Common, Alex Meraz and David Harbour in as of yet unconfirmed roles.
There’s not too much in terms of airtime for the rest of the cast but the trailer gives us a real feel for the film. We can’t wait! Suicide Squad is scheduled for release here on the 5th August 2016.
Update: A new full trailer was released this morning and it is brilliant! Soundtracked to Bo Rap, the bad guys turned heroes look to save the world from Jared Leto’s Joker, who actually looks to be distinguishable enough from Heath Ledger’s that we’re starting to believe this might actually work! The film look fun, Margot Robbie looks incredibly sexy and the action looks full throttle. They’ve got some very happy Joes here! Take a look at the full trailer below!
