With all quiet on the superhero front for a month and a half before the release of Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. just gifted us with two new TV spots that show only a tiny bit more in terms of new footage. But the spots also double down on the humorous tone of the film that WB has been positioning from the start.

The first of the two (which is actually the third TV spot), is a sort of streamlined mini-trailer, and it really plays up the unhinged, crazy aspect of the Squad.

The second is Will Smith-centric, with the actor's comedic timing front and center as the dry-humored Deadshot.

There's not much else to add here in lieu of new footage, but from everything we've seen so far, it looks like it will be Focus stars Smith and Margot Robbie carrying the weight of the film between them. While that could just be a byproduct of them being the two biggest stars, aside from Jared Leto as Joker, if it turns out that they're the faces of what Warner Bros. hopes will be a new franchise (and one launched on more solid footing than what's come before), it would also make sense.

Suicide Squad is in theaters on August 5.


Which character are you most looking forward to seeing in 'Suicide Squad'?
