Now that you’ve watched it at a 45 degree angle through the lens of a fuzzy cell phone camera in the dark, it’s time to see what you missed. It’s the motley band of DC Comics’ own Dirty Dozen (give or take), the Suicide Squad. The trailer premiered at the DC Entertainment/Warner panel this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, and millions watched it before Warner Bros. & Co. decided to go ahead and release the real thing Monday.
If a little make-up throws you off a bit, here’s the line-up: Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) is Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne (Anna Karenina) is Enchantress, Will Smith (Men in Black, Independence Day) is Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) is Flagg, Margot Robbie (Pan Am) is Harley Quinn, Jay Hernandez (Grindhouse) is El Diablo, Adam Beach (Cowboys & Aliens) is Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara is Katana, and our favorite, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost, G.I. Joe, Thor: The Dark World), is Killer Croc. Oh, right, and Jared Leto (Urban Legend, My So-Called Life) is The Joker.
A pretty diverse group for a superhero universe hive of scum and villainy.
Here’s the trailer for Suicide Squad:
Anyone else think Heroes of Cosplay’s Chloe Dykstra would make a great Harley Quinn?
You have a really long wait if you’re looking forward to this movie. It doesn’t hit theaters until August 5, 2016.
