Ready to meet the “worst heroes ever”? You’re in luck because the newly released trailer for Suicide Squad shows them all in their full bad guy glory. There’s Deadshot (Will Smith), a Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) who eats people, a guy named Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) who tends to light everything on fire, and Cara Delevingne playing the witchy Enchantress. Of course, there’s also Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) who is just plain crazy.
They have all been assembled, well incarcerated, by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis, who knows a thing or two about the criminal justice system) to carry out the missions no one else would dare go on. “You’re going somewhere very bad to do something that will get you killed,” says the man in charge (Rick Flagg). Oh, and at some point they get tangled up with The Joker (Jared Leto) who stays true to form by gunning down people in a tuxedo, laying around surrounded by every type of knife imaginable and getting in as many maniacal laughs as possible.
The new trailer is a decidedly more comedic one than the clip released after last year’s Comic Con with the squad having so much fun being bad. And it’s set to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” which makes everything that much better.
This movie looks so good that if anyone mentions “squad” in my presence, they better mean Suicide Squad, not the one involving a certain pop star, unless you strangely happen to be in both. Looking at you, Cara Delevingne.
