The new Suicide Squad trailer released Tuesday gave a closer look at the “worst heroes ever” in the DC Comic universe.
‘Suicide Squad’ Trailer
In the latest trailer for David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad, Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) is shown assembling her squad of villains to fight an unknown enemy. Before they can get to work, they have to be released from Belle Reve Penitentiary, where the majority of them are being kept in tortuous conditions they’ll do anything to be free from.
“I want to assemble a task force of the most dangerous people on the planet,” she tells her team, which includes Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman). With June Moon/Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) over his shoulder, Rick goes through the files of the soon-to-be squad members.
Per the files, Deadshot (Will Smith) shoots people, Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) is a crocodile who eats people, El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) burns people, Boomerang (Jai Courtney) kills with boomerangs and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) is just plain crazy. Rick also says to June Moon of her Enchantress alter-ego, “You’re possessed by a witch.”
On their mission “that will get you killed,” according to Flagg, the squad encounters a goo-like matter, and creatures that seem to be made up of the same swampy substance. Suspiciously missing from the battle scenes is Enchantress, who does appear in a meeting with government officials, telling them, “Let’s do something fun.” Is she the biggest big bad?
The Joker (Jared Leto) also appears to be missing from the squad, but is up to his menacing ways elsewhere, hissing, “I can’t wait to show you my toys” to one unfortunate man.
Suicide Squad hits theaters Aug. 5.
