It’s the start of June, summer feels like it’ really getting started. We’ve booked the holiday, department stores are starting to put swimsuits on sale and grocery stores are selling beers pre-mixed with lime. I’m thinking to myself what do I really need? Another Suicide Squad trailer? No, not really.
And yet here is the new trailer.
So, this one has all the parts we’ve already seen in the other trailer, except Batman makes a cameo . And really, doesn’t that make all the difference? While the Batman footage doesn’t look completely different from the fan film shot during production, there is yet more on this mysterious enemy they are fighting.
The Joker is clearly on the guest list, but might not be the big bad enemy. The Joker is too valuable to waste on the first film. Jared might be looking like a good bit of franchise work.
Instead, the villain for the Suicide Squad movie looks to be legion in numbers and probably supernatural. In an interview, David Ayer hinted at the villain saying the Squad faced a dangerous and unknown force. Clips suggest supernatural, which is convenient if you want an opportunity for a bunch of bad guys to cause destruction.
The Suicide Squad might not be as good as Deadpool, but we are looking forward its arrival on August 5. That should give enough time for another trailer, right?
