Warner Bros released a brand new Suicide Squad trailer during last night’s MTV Movie Awards, and it’s jam-packed with new footage.
The teaser keeps the retro feel of the first, being set to The Sweet’s 1973 song ‘The Ballroom Blitz’.
Harley Quinn is seen wielding a sizeable mallet, there’s better looks at Jared Let’s deranged Joker and Ben Affleck’s Batman cameo is confirmed.
Batman is seen chasing The Joker, who is perhaps the least compliant of the squad. Rumour has it, Batman isn’t best pleased by the White House’s plan to enlist the supervillains’ services and takes it upon himself to chaperone them.
Superman also gets a namecheck in the trailer, though given Batman v Superman’s critical drubbing, DC may come to wish they’d distanced the film from it.
Suicide Squad’s cast includes Will Smith, Leto, Robbie, Joel Kinnanman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Jay Hernandez and Adele Akinnuoye-Agbaje, with direction coming from Fury’s David Ayer.
'It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?'
It will open in cinemas on 5 August.
