We are steady on this DCEU train. Now, 'Suicide Squad' has dropped an amazing trailer at the MTV Movie Awards. It has the humor, the action, the Joker and even the Batman. Let's dive right into it.
We can see the trailer opening with a man speaking of theoretical threats made by Superman. How he could rip the roof off of the White House. Notice his referral of Superman in "past tense". Though the movie was said to be taking place before 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', could the reshoots mean they are having some events take place afterwards? Possibly. Or did the movie already have time jumps, all together? Either way, things could still play out well, having it placed after Dawn of Justice's events.
In the trailer, we see a lot of hints towards them going after Enchantress. To stop her or to obtain her as an ally. Here are the examples.
First, we see June Moone become possessed.
Here, she is sought after. Look at the markings on the wall. They appear the same as those in the bathtub scene, where she seems to not be in control of her powers.
Finally, the capture or surrendering. Either she joins or is somehow subdued. The symbol on the wall indicates that she's in the room of a U.S. official.
These are the mysterious creature(s) they are fighting. Could they be created by Enchantress? Or will she be aiding in them being stopped?
Enchantress has possession of Nightwitch's 'Herne-Ramsgate Cauldron', which allows her to find almost every single magical creature. She could be used to locate Superman. Or even Aquaman.
We saw Batman saving Quinn's life. Either a play from Joker, or the Suicide Squad could be going after Batman too. This could be their play. We also saw Batman hanging onto a speeding car driven by the Joker, with the passenger being Harley Quinn.
This could indicate events happening after what the Squad had taken care of. Batman saves Quinn while she's with the group and now she's with the Joker. There has to be a time jump somewhere. Besides, we know the movie will include Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel's transition into Harley Quinn from earlier images of her and the Joker's session. That's another time jump from then, to now.
We saw Joker speaking with who seems to be Common's character.
In the mirror behind him, it looks to be Common, who many say is Tattooed-Man.
There's a lot of action going on in 'Suicide Squad'. There's a lot of humor along with it, which 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' was criticized for not "having". We all have seen the movie's portrayal of Alfred and Perry White, by Irons and Fishburne. It had its humor. Let us see how Suicide Squad will be treated.
It enters on August 5, 2016.
