The as-yet-untitled song is yet to be released but a snippet of an early version is available on SoundCloud:
References to the upcoming DC Comics supervillain movie abound, with Rick Ross mentioning “Suicide Squad”, “Gotham City”, “Killer Croc” and the “purple Lamborghini” Jokermobile (actually a Vaydor 35, to get picky about it) .
Skrillex premiered the track at WAV Nightclub in New Jersey’s Atlantic City earlier this year. It is expected to feature on the film’s official soundtrack, although this is yet to be confirmed, with the video set for release on 1 July.
Suicide Squad has been much-hyped as this summer’s big blockbuster, with mostly positive test screening reviews ranking fans’ expectations up even higher. Margot Robbie stars alongside Leto as his unhinged on-off lover and accomplice Harley Quinn, while Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis and Jai Courtney also star.
The story follows Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Ben Affleck making a brief cameo as Batman, and focuses on a group of villains recruited by a secret government agency to carry out black op missions in exchange for reduced jail sentences.
Suicide Squad hits UK cinemas on 5 August.
