Suicide Squad has released its first official trailer, and it is a sight to behold. This is the first trailer since Warners and David Ayer were forced to released the sizzle reel footage that was strictly meant for Comic-Con. The film is written and directed by David Ayer, and set for an August release, and after seeing this trailer, August cannot come soon enough. This will be the first film that follows up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it centers on a group of villains with special abilities, that have been locked away, until Amanda Waller brings them together to create a group to take on an even bigger threat than them in exchange for commuted sentences.
It’s understandable that David Ayer and Warner Brothers were furious following the leaked Comic-Con footage. They simply weren’t ready to release footage as of yet and them some yokel takes a grainy cell phone video and ruins the party. That being said it has been a long time coming for a second trailer, which comes on the heels of the new set of posters that Ayer and Warners dropped. Dropping during the DC television event that gave us all some insight into the new DCEU.

Sufficed to say, this trailer is just plain fantastic. When Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody chimes in to start the trailer, We were a little nervous as to how that would fit. It would take another 2 second to realize just how perfect that track flows with the tone and the footage. Every character gets a little time to shine in the new trailer. Some clearly more than others, but what stands out is as predicted Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is going to steal the show and be the focal point of the whole film. She has this bubbly madness that just works perfectly, and it seems like we are getting the Harley Quinn we all want. Will Smith’s Deadshot looks to have quite the pivotal role himself and looks badass. The Joker gets some Solid screen time and Jared Leto does not disappoint. The jury might still be out on just how good his portrayal of the mad clown will be, but all the early limited footage we have so far is very promising and he seems to have a new iteration of the character that won’t disappoint. The film has this frantic disco like atmosphere with lots of bright colors and epic shots. This trailer is just fun to watch plain and simple. If the Suicide Squad was not one of your most anticipated films of 2016 after seeing this, then you have no pulse.
