We have another great trailer for Suicide Squad, perfectly timed I might add, in light of some recent rumors regarding this movie.
Some of you might have heard that Warner Bros. is doing some reshoots for Suicide Squad and since this is happening right after Batman v Superman‘s release, the rumors going around said the studio was trying to lighten up the tone. Now that might seem strange since the last trailer looked like a lot of fun, so what’s exactly the problem? Well apparently those same rumors suggested that all the jokes in the movie were in the last trailer. So basically this new trailer is putting all those rumors to rest since the tone is just as light as the previous one and they included a ton of new footage. This movie could be the jolt Warner Brothers’ DCEU (short for DC Extended Universe, which is another way of saying cinematic universe) needs if they want to keep the series viable for the future.
A secret government agency known as “Task Force X”, led by Amanda Waller, recruits imprisoned super-villains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency and saving the world from an unknown but powerful threat.
David Ayer wrote and directed Suicide Squad and starring in the movie are Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Ben Affleck (oh yeah, Batfleck is back, not that I’m complaining, quite the opposite), Viola Davis, Jai Courtney (who could end up stealing the show), Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Scott Eastwood, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jay Hernandez and more.
Suicide Squad opens August 5th.
