After the exclusive Comic Con trailer for Suicide Squad leaked online, WB have released the first official trailer for the film online.
Suicide Squad teams up "the worst of the worst", a group of super villains put together by Amanda Waller to take down a threat bigger than themselves.
Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Boomerang, Killer Croc, Rick Flagg, Katana, Enchantress, El Diablo and Slipknot are Task Force X or as Will Smith's Deadshot puts it "a suicide squad".
The task force is assigned to take down a deadly threat that as of yet is unknown to us. Are the team simply there to stop the Joker? Or is there something bigger than him threatening the world?
The most exciting aspect of Suicide Squad is the re-introduction of the Joker. Oscar Winner Jared Leto is now taking on the iconic role and from what we've heard, is taking it incredibly seriously. Leto looks absolutely terrifying in the role and I'm so interested as to what the character of the Joker will be like this time round. To me it looks like Joker is talking to Harley Quinn at the end, we see him tie her down to a chair halfway through the teaser whilst she's still Dr Harleen Quinzel, this could perhaps be the birth of her super villain persona?
I really like this trailer, Suicide Squad looks to be the darkest film DC has ever done and I love that! The movie does look to have a sense of humor though, a very dark one, but a sense of humor at least.
The film is directed by David Ayer and hits theaters August 5th 2016.
