Huge fan of both Marvel AND Dc. I love talking about this with my friends and thought it could be cool to post online about my opinions...

Alright, let's talk about this!

I've just watched the Comic-Con trailer of «Suicide Squad». Honestly, I dont think that it was the best trailer... Sure, it was dark and (kind of) creepy, as the movie is supposed to be, but it was missing something... Did anyone understood how all of this happened, why they made this squad full of psycho and creepy cold-blood killers? Of course, all the real fans could write a comment and tell me the whole story, but I already know all of this, the whole story! I am a fan myself, but put yourself in Mister X's shoes for a second. This guy never been a real fan of DC (or even Marvel). Oh yeah, he watched all of the movies! But no comics, never. Will this guy understand only when watching the trailer what is going on?! Or even is he supposed to understand only by watching the trailer? Cause it could be a strategy from the big bosses that said something like: "Let's give them the least of information, but a good welming intrigue, so they will be forced to buy a ticket for the movie to answer their questions"... Maybe.

Now, let's be a bit more specific... Jared Leto's Joker... The character is good looking, but, again, it misses something... After I've seen Heat Ledger play the Joker, I was in heaven! Even if it was not like the comics, it was still perfect! Creepy and everything, just like the Joker is supposed to be. And it is no different for Jared Leto (as it seems to be), also considering that we do not see his so much in the trailer, we only see him for about 10 seconds and he speaks a little bit... Maybe the DC's big bosses are reserving us a surprise by not revealing too much about him, maybe... For the moment, what I think about him, his character, is that I was expecting something more, especially about that voice. Especially because he's making his own Joker voice! At my hears, it seems a little too low, it would need to be a little bit more acute... But it is only personnal opinion.

So tell me, what do you think about the trailer? And, more specificfull, what do you think about Jared Leto's Joker?
