I know you're desperate for this, so here it is: the new Suicide Squad trailer.

Was it worth the wait? Of course it was.

Unlike the second Batman vs Superman trailer, this one builds on everything that made the first epic, answering a few questions and posing many more. So without further ado, let's talk three of the huge takeaways from these surreal two minutes of crazy, colourful chaos.

Harley Quinn is crazier than crazy

In arguably the best of the new scenes, Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), who is either law enforcement or leader of an illicit SWAT team, squares up with Harley in the yard of the prison where the Squad are being held. And then this happens.

"What was that? I should kill everyone and escape?" *laughs* "Sorry, the voices. I'm kidding! .... That's not what they really said."

Nobody seems to know quite what to make of Quinn.

Meet the Squad

Flagg, who seems to have been charged by Amanda Waller with assembling the team on the ground, talks us through the various members of the Squad.

Deadshot is "the guy who shoots people". No prizes for guessing who "the crocodile who eats people" is. "Burns people... possessed by a witch... and she's just crazy."

There's a clear pecking order here, and not much screentime for the likes of Katana or even Enchantress.

A Beautiful Chaos

As if the choice of music didn't emphasise it enough - Bohemian Rhapsody is like, the most bipolar song of all-time - there's a hell of a lot of chaos to digest in this movie - and, unlike Batman vs Superman, the title really does describe the film quite aptly.

This is a suicide mission. The likes of Flagg and Deadshot (Will Smith) don't look too thrilled about being being a part of it - whereas El Diablo and Harley seem to be having the time of their lives.

And did you catch this blink-and-you'll-miss-it teaser of the Joker pulling Quinn out of a what looks like a giant vat of toxic, bubbling acid?

Judging by the pink and blue that's Quinn, not Quinzel, he's saving, so presumably she's almost killed on the mission - which casts doubt on the idea that he only appears via flashback.

Now I don't know about you, but I need to watch this trailer again. And again. And then laugh myself silly at how right DC have got this movie.

Check out the two new posters below, watch the trailer twelve times, and let us know exactly what you thought.

Suicide Squad drops 5 August, 2016 in theaters. Go see it.
