We’ll say this much for the burgeoning DC movie universe – it’s already looking a bit unpredictable. We still have no idea what to make of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a movie that appears to have the plots and characters of a dozen separate film jammed into one package, but we’re certainly intrigued by Suicide Squad. Here is a comic book movie that, conceptually, feels like a gigantic left turn. How do you follow up a movie featuring Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman? How about an adaptation of a mostly unknown comic series about B-tier villains teaming up to take down a bigger threat? That’s bold.
But enough of that. You’re here because the first proper Suicide Squad trailer has arrived. You can watch that below.
The new trailer comes hot on the heels of that stylish new poster, which transforms the film’s impressive ensemble into a collection of stylized skulls. Both that one-sheet and the new footage makes one thing clear: this isn’t your typical comic book movie.[via]
