Suicide Squad Trailer 1

When the impossible needs to be done, sometimes you need the best of the worst. Task Force X, otherwise known as the Suicide Squad, is an ensemble of some of the worst super villains in DC history.¬†Having gone through several incarnations, this squad is comprised of Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Dead Shot, Captain Boomerang, Slipknot, El Diablo, and the Enchantress. With plot details being scarce, from what we’ve seen in the trailer, whatever is going down looks ridiculous and awesome!

Wow. This was a pretty cool¬†trailer. It actually felt like a DC Comic book movie. Which was odd and yet at the same time rejoicing. I think this is the DC movie I’m most excited for. My reasoning is that this trailer clearly doesn’t take itself too seriously, but at the same time conveys a great comic-book/pulpy tone. That’s what I think was lacking in the other Batman v Superman trailers so far. They all felt so serious, too serious. But back to Suicide Squad.

Something else that intrigues me about this trailer is who is the big bad? Of course you know Jared Leto’s Joker is involved in some way, but what about all those weird spike covered guards, and that tendril monster attacking the subway? From what I’ve seen, this thing has an entire city on lockdown, and if Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller is involved that means she’s probably in on it too.

Either way, I’m pretty interested in this movie. The marketing has been great; not giving away too much. And so far the ensemble seems to be working great. Here’s hoping the movie can hold up August 6, 2016.
