The Suicide Squad Comic-Con trailer leak was probably one of the most exciting things for DC and superhero fans in general, worldwide. The studio had no intention to release the trailer officially but the untimely leak led to some change in plans.
But now, a new theatrical trailer of the film is ready for release and we may get to see it in January 2016. Is there a lot of Joker footage in the upcoming trailer you ask? Well, based on its alleged description, it's pretty big on laughs!
Here's how the said new trailer reportedly plays out: (via
We Got This Covered)
Opening to the inimitable Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, Heroic Hollywood claims that Suicide Squad's second full-length trailer takes cues from the Comic-Con reel, showcasing more of Belle Reve Penitentiary and its deranged inmates, whether it's Harley Quinn drinking tea in fuzzy pink slippers or Diablo doing push-ups in his cell.
From there, it jumps to a shot of Amanda Waller proposing the Task Force X protocol at dinner much like the scene glimpsed in the Comic-Con teaser, followed by a staged breakout by Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) that also involved Deadshot (Will Smith) and Diablo (Jay Hernandez). Cue a quick cut to Rick Flagg going through Deadshot's file, with a dressed down Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) in tow, as they go through the leading members of Suicide Squad and their idiosyncratic abilities.
Flagg then pitches the deal of executing dangerous black ops missions to Task Force X, which is quickly followed by a hero shot of Deadshot, Katana, Diablo, Captain Boomerang, Rick Flagg, and Harley Quinn stalking the streets. Later in the description, there's also mention of the skeleton group – along with the help of Killer Croc – battling the monsters that Enchantress has conjured, with Deadshot living up to his title and mowing down waves of enemies.
As Bohemian Rhapsody begins to reach its famous crescendo, there's a bevy of fast cuts introducing the Joker, a battle on the streets, Enchantress on the hunt for a Macguffin, and Leto's Clown Prince of Crime diving into some form of chemical tank to retrieve Harley. All of this culminates with Rick Flagg surveying the behaviour of the film's ragtag group, to which Harley Quinn replies: 'We're bad guys. It's what we do."
Seems pretty cool, right? However, it's important to note that no official word regarding the new trailer release is out yet so it's best to take this description with a pinch of salt!
Suicide Squad is slated to be released on 5 August 2016. Check out the first Comic-Con trailer of the film below:
