Well, how wrong we've been proven; with the panel dropping one final remixed trailer that marked not only a masterpiece in editing, but finally offered some major hints as to the film's storyline.
Though an intriguing early clip of Cara Delvingne's Enchantress being introduced by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) to a room of government officials seemed to hint at her somehow being involved in the early formation of the Squad; the new trailer seems to confirm that, whatever may happen in-between, it's her character who forms the big bad of the film's climax.
The new trailer reveals what Deadshot (Will Smith) describes as, "the swirling ring of trash in the sky"; an energy beam which a later shot seems to quite clearly show is coming from the Enchantress herself. Perhaps there's duplicity involved in her relationship with Waller, perhaps she's a good-guy-turned-bad when her powers spiral out of control; either way, she's a force to be reckoned with.
We're also getting a pretty solid preview of the film's soundtrack with featured tracks "Heathens" by Twenty One Pilots; "Sucker For Pain" by Imagine Dragons ft. Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, Logic, X Ambassadors, and Wiz Khalifa; and "Purple Lamborghini" by Skrillex and Rick Ross.
