Alright a new Suicide Squad trailer called 'Blitz' was just released the other day, and we now have tons of new footage. Wait...hold on... I'm still trying to get over Jared Leto's haunting new Joker laugh. Speaking of the 'Clown Prince of Crime', we finally have a first good idea of what the Joker's role in Suicide Squad might actually be. Based strictly off the footage of the trailers, I am willing to go out on a limb and say that the villainous squad will go after none other than the Joker himself. Let's break this down real quick.

Harley Will Go Rogue

This shot one more time.

Fans can basically state confidently at this point in the film that the Joker and Harley Quinn have for sure met (I mean she is already Harley Quinn and check out that jacket). That said, this in particular shot was taken out of pretty well shown fight throughout the trailers. Most importantly, let's remember that the Suicide Squad appeared to be taking on some sort of mix of armed men. One might say, that these men were sent after the Suicide Squad after they went rogue. But what if they didn't go rogue yet? What if these men were actually the Joker's and maybe the gang of villains didn't even know they were his.

Take a look at this shot from the 'Blitz' trailer. Study the background and compare to that of the background of the picture above. It's safe to say that there are so similarities between the two. Not to mention the very similar looking goons behind the Joker, that appear to be the same ones the Suicide Squad had been fighting off in the trailers (minus the dude with mask on the right).

Also take a look at this shot where you can see what looks like the two pictures backgrounds almost running together. You can see the lighting from the background of the first picture, and what appears to be the glass from background of the second picture. It's also worth noting that at this scene in the 'Blitz' trailer, you can hear the Joker's laugh in the background as Harley mutters the words, "Oh no". So more than likely this will be the scene where the Joker and Harley Quinn have a little reunion and Harley will join him.

Joker Will Betray Harley Once Again

Also seen in the 'Blitz' trailer is what appears to be the Joker betraying Harley Quinn one more time. Making this a some what of a repeat incident of him throwing her into a vat of acid earlier in the film. Or perhaps Harley may have a flashback of her original fall during the time of her second fall. How's that for a twist? Now for the big theory on the Joker.

The Joker is Hunting The Suicide Squad

Here we have another shot of the Joker from the 'Blitz' trailer that shows Leto's Joker in almost of crime boss type of portrayal. Also, in the mirror you can see what appears to be Common's character in the film. This promotes the idea that perhaps Common's character may be informing the Joker about the new so called 'Suicide Squad', and that they might start showing him up. Then being the Joker, he naturally would want to get rid of them in order to take his city back. After all, the Joker is very egocentric. Not to mention, he probably gets information that his old fling Harley is apart of the gang.

So what do you think will we see the Joker be hunted or the hunter? Let me know in the comments down below.
