The brand new Suicide Squad trailer is finally here by way of Kevin Smith during the Dawn of The Justice League special and it did not fail to impress! With a ton of new content and some never-before-seen looks of our favorite villains, this trailer was essentially perfect! Let's get right into it!
Deadshot thinks he can take the whole security team.
In the beginning of the trailer we see Will Smith preparing to fight a few dozen armed guards and it doesn't seem to work out very well for him. He looks pretty damaged, almost like he just got through crying. I think we are in store for a very deep and emotional character from Will Smith.
Wait, Enchantress Isn't The Villain?
For months we have all been under the impression that Cara Delevingne's character Enchantress would be the film's main villain but that does not seem to be the case. As Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) went through the list of Squad members, he also included Enchantress. So if Enchantress isn't the true villain, then who is?
Margot Robbie is undoubtably THE PERFECT Harley Quinn!
We have seen Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn character the most out of any members of the Squad so far, but the vocal content has been quite limited. The dialogue that Robbie used throughout the trailer was absolutely outstanding and she is really making Harley Quinn come to life! Can you think of anyone more perfect?
What is this Mysterious Black Goo?
Throughout the trailer, we get glimpses of this mysterious black goo. This apparently has to do with the big bad that the Squad is going after as it is prevalent throughout the trailer. Very mysterious indeed.
Jared Leto is going to be amazing... no really.
Very similar to The Joker's arch nemesis Batman, a ton of fans were unhappy with the initial casting decision. Jared Leto's Joker has been subject to much scrutiny since its inception but over the past few months that has all seemed to vanish. Jared Leto looks absolutely insane and he is stepping into the role of the Joker in the most gracious way. Go Mr. J!
Jai Courtney is absolutely hilarious!
Probably the biggest surprise, for me at least, was Jai Courtney's crazy portrayal of Captain Boomerang. He literally seems like a crazy person and is seen acting criminally insane throughout the trailer. If he can add a bit more unsuspecting humor throughout the film, we could definitely be in for a treat.
Is this the Suicide Squad's true Villain?
Here we see a mysterious figure standing on one the tracks of a subway station. As the train approaches, he just completely rips through it with ease. This could be related to the mysterious black goo from earlier and this could be the true villain of the film. Who could he be?
Did The Joker jump into another vat of acid?
In a very majestic way, The Joker seems to swan dive into yet another pool of acid to rescue what seems to be a Harley Quinn manikin. It will be very interesting to see if we get a true Joker origin story and if this is his first time jumping into some acid. There are so many things intriguing me at this point but this has me very interested!
"We're bad guys, It's what we do!"
The ending of this trailer is absolutely perfect. It summed up exactly what we should expect out of the Suicide Squad. While their actions may be heroic at times, they are still villains with a villainous mentality. This trailer is exactly what DC needed and they really upped the ante with this one. It was probably the best trailer I have seen in a while and I can not wait for August!
