Last week Warner Brothers Pictures and DC Comics turned heads at San Diego Comic Con when the highly anticipated “Suicide Squad” trailer was revealed to the public.
We are invited to the journey over filet mignon as Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) vaguely discusses her secret government agency A.R.G.U.S’s plans while giving us a brief history of what the Suicide Squad typically is; a random collection of super villains serving as pawns for a covert mission.
Upon Waller’s words we are slowly introduced to the criminals compromising the team with the focus being on Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Deadshot (Will Smith).
While there’s not much dialogue going on after the first third, we see enough action and twists that give us plenty inclination of what to expect next summer.
Throughout the trailer, there are snippets of singer Becky Hanson’s remixed cover version of the Bee Gees 1968 top-10 hit “I Started A Joke” playing in the background – an obvious foreshadowing of what we’ve all been waiting for.
Enter Jared Leto’s Joker, who’s seems to bring his own unique brand of sinister to the character on the big screen.
All we need to hear is that giant, menacing belly-laugh of his and we’re convinced.
