Welcom to the comic con fallout, guess what we’ve got? That’s right, it’s the Suicide Squad trailer, the official one this time.
With typical Comic Con fashion, of course a blurry version of the trailer was leaked online but it was quickly taken down. Never fear though, as the official trailer has now been released online.
So now, you’ll get to see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and her boyfriend The Joker on screen; Will Smith as on target killer Deadshot; Cara Delevingne as the Enchantress; and a whole motley crew of B and C list DC villains and anti-heroes.
Like who? Well, we’ve got the Tattoed Man, Captain Boomerang, Katana – lesser known characters which have similar characteristics like Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye, people will embrace any odd B or C list character. You just need to do some good writing.
So, why is the Joker in prison? Did he kill Robin? Like it was implied in the Batman v Superman trailer? Could that explain the car chase featured in the trailer?
Speculation will spread of course. Did you know that the Suicide Squad appeared in The Justice League cartoon under the name Task Force X? They also appeared in Smallville and Arrow.
Cara Delevingne, does seem the victim of evil in this one, with clips implying something is screwing with her mind, meanwhile the others are just bad guys. Or are they?
The plot? Well government big wig Amanda Waller has put together a black ops team where imprisoned super villains take high risk missions to reduce their prison sentences.
Check out the subtle references to Superman and the cheeky clips of Batman giving Joker the big what for.
The big news so far? Well apparently some of the cast have been seeing therapists to get into the mind of a super villain. Or get some early counseling if the film doesn’t pan out.
