The latest trailer for the highly anticipated comic book adaptation featuring some of DC Comics’ famous villains, “Suicide Squad,” is here, showcasing the members of the team that will haunt the big screen in eight months.
The clip aired during “DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League” special on The CW. The trailer introduced the cast members while Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” played in the background. The scenes opened with Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang pleading to be freed from containment while Margot Robbie’s psychotic character Harley Quinn sipped tea and reading a book. Meanwhile, Will Smith’s Deadshot looked outside to the falling rain from his prison cell.
“I want a simple task force of the most dangerous people on the planet… worst of the worst” Amanda Waller said, played by actress Viola Davis. A montage of the criminals being lead out of their prisons then followed, with Deadshot stating, “What is this? Cheerleader trials?”
The other members of the unlikely group were also highlighted such as Adele Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc who eats people, Jay Hernandez as human incinerator El Diablo, Cara Delevingne as the power-wielding witch Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flagg who seemingly leads them, and even Batman’s arguably greatest foe, the Clown Prince of Crime himself – The Joker (Jared Leto) – made an appearance.
Harley Quinn is then described as the one who was “just crazy” while she replied, “What was that? I should kill everyone in this gate? Sorry, the voices. Haha I’m kidding! That’s not what they really said.” She ended the video saying, “We’re bad guys, that’s what we do.”
The dispensable team is tasked to complete a mission for the government in exchange of shorter jail sentences. It is said to be the force’s way of doing something illegal without being actually involved.
DC Comics’ Geoff Johns shared that the movie, alongside the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” will re-introduce well-known characters to the fans when they hit theaters on August 5 and March 25, respectively.
