Warner Bros. and DC have been quite picky in releasing details for their highly anticipated upcoming movie - Suicide Squad. What's intriguing about the movie is that it is unlike anything done before, as it is based on some of the most dangerous villains in the DC Universe.

Below is the trailer for the movie shown at Comic-Con in case you'd like to refresh your memory (after all, so many trailers have been released these past few days, you might have forgotten this one).

DC has now officially released the synopsis for the movie, which you can check out below:

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity.

U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do.

However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

This, however, leads to even more questions. A few interesting things to note:

Most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal

Some kryptonian technology, maybe? Or something connecting to the Justice League? Or is it setting up something else for the DCEU?

defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity

It's unlikely that they will be fighting an alien or foreign threat, so this is what I think is possible. Since Ben Affleck is also appearing in this movie, it is possible that Waller wants them to take down Batman. However, I don't think that will be the case for this movie. Instead, they will probably be going against...

I'm just gonna hurt ya... really, really bad.
I'm just gonna hurt ya... really, really bad.

Yep, The Joker. Being one of DC's most popular characters, they will be looking to use him extensively, and would make a great villain for Suicide Squad, considering that Harley Quinn is also featuring in the movie. Further evidence of this can be found as we see Joker being broken out of a facility which we can assume is Arkham Asylum.

This is also hinted in the lyrics of the song used as the soundtrack for the trailer, titled "I Started A Joke". The lyrics go something like this:

I started a joke, which started the whole world crying,

but I didn't see that the joke was on me.

I started to cry, which started the whole world laughing,

if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

Clearly, whatever Amanda Waller has in plan for the Squad, it's going to backfire on them.

This brings me to my next point:

However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

The Suicide Squad are destined to fail in their mission. A lot of evidence of this can be seen in the trailer. Firstly, around the 0:50 mark, when Amanda Waller is questioned about her decision to use a bunch of villains, she replies:

Exactly. So if anything goes wrong, we blame them.

Next, we also see Katana apparently stabbing herself with her sword. We also see a rushed glimpse of Captain Boomerang being threatened at the 2:16 mark (blink and you'll miss it!), and El Diablo's flames being extinguished by water.

As for Harley Quinn, her fate is a little unclear, but it's possibly that she gets back together with Joker. We see him torturing a woman in a lab, which could either be set in the present, or in a flashback scene. We also see her in the Jokermobile with Batman chasing, which again, could be set either in the present day or another flashback.

Recent rumours have suggested that Deadshot (played by Will Smith) was being considered as another villain for the solo Batman movie, therefore it is safe to assume that he will survive the encounter. Either way, someone is going to get hurt... really, really bad. Suicide Squad hits the theatres August 5, 2016.
