Some of you may have already caved and watched the pirated version but Warner Bros. has now officially released the Suicide Squad trailer that premiered at Comic-Con so you can view it in all its crazy HD glory!
The so-called “Anti-Avengers” team consists of a cavalcade of baddies including most famously Deadshot (being played by Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and, of course, the first live-action portrayal of The Joker since Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, this time being played by Jared Leto.
While the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer still wins out (go watch that NOW if you haven’t already), the Suicide Squad trailer comes pretty damn close. Check it below and prepare to get shivers when you hear that cackling…
Leto looks great as the new Joker – I like that he’s not just copying Ledger, providing a more comic book-ish take than the late actor’s more gritty version – and Robbie looks absolutely perfect as fan-favourite Harley Quinn. And generally the idea of a film about a team of baddies – each with their own distinctive styles of wickedness – is very intriguing and should be a whole load of fun.
Directed by David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch), Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5th, 2016.
