Suicide-Squad

In case you somehow haven’t noticed, there are a lot of superheroes hitting our screen. So many in fact, that most of them just end up fighting each other (see: Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: They’re Really Sticking To This Dumb Title). Thankfully, we’re also getting something to balance out all that smug, square-jawed goodness with DC and Warner Bros’ supervillain team flick Suicide Squad.

And during a special that aired on CW last night called “DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League” – which was basically a primer for this new shared DC Comics cinematic universe – a brand new Suicide Squad poster and trailer was also unveiled. And if you thought the leaked, then officially released, Comic-Con first look trailer from last year was good, then wait till you get a load of this!

Well, damn! How cool is that?! With the idiosyncratic music (and if you didn’t sing along, we can’t be friends!) oddball characters (or in case, eyeball character) and dry witty humour, you have to get the feeling that DC is setting this up as their answer to Marvel’s offbeat Guardians of the Galaxy. Only more terrestrial – but not too much based on that weird goo and monstrous tentacles we can just barely glimpse in the trailer. And you know what? I f#$king love them for it!

If there’s one thing the DC Comics cinematic universe desperately needed, it was some lightening up. Well, to be fair, this is still pretty dark, as its not often that one of our “heroes” has a predilection for eating people, but it just seems so freaking fun!

And then there’s Jared Leto’s Joker… Phwoar! I know the forehead tattoos and grill all seemed like they were trying way, way too hard to be grungy and edgy, but I’ll be damned if the more I see of him, the more I’m loving his version of the character. Couple all of that with how spectacularly this trailer has been cut together (action timings are perfect!), and my excitement level for this is through the roof.

Oh and while CW hasn’t made the Special itself available to the public yet, you can can check out the trailer for it below.

Suicide Squad also stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Cara Delivingne as Enchantress, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Adam Beach as Slipknot, and Jim Parrack as Deathstroke. Suicide Squad was written and directed by David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch, Training Day) is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.

        Only difference in Assault on Arkham is that the Joker actually looks like the Joker. I mean, like, how dare they! the Joker is supposed to look like a pimped out version of Marilyn Manson………….Right?

    Quick question: Do I need to hard reset my Chrome browser everytime I need to view a video on the site? I hard reset twice yesterday and now I cant view the videos again. By the way I dont know why but it feels like this movie is going to do pretty bad. Just a feeling.

          I am not married to any browser because all browsers have their “cycles” where they have issues. I migrate. Used IE, switched to FireFox, then to IE, then to Chrome. Right now IE and Chrome are both giving me issues at work (could just be our IT policies) but Chrome working nice at home.

            Thats true. I usually stuck to Chrome cause it never ever gave me issues at work or at home, but now for the past few months its become a bit of a pain at work. I work in Everlytic for my mailers and when ever I send a test out to check if the mailer displays properly then it constantly displays the previous mailer with the current latest information I had put in. Every single time I need to reset browser history, clear cache, clear everything really and only then it tends to work, but yesterday even that didnt work anymore so I switched to Safari and bam it works perfectly then I needed to do another mailer and now even Safari gives the same issue. When i cleared both browsers then they decided to work normally again. Pure annoyance.

      I think your browser has cached our old css which had some issues; it should resolve soon.

      Yeah it’s going to happen, but right now they’re still growing in popularity globally & it’ll be years before we see any kind of decline, especially if the movies themselves remain pretty good overall.

          He’s quite a good actor, usually dramatic roles like in Dallas Buyer’s Club or Requiem for a Dream. And he just happens to be the lead singer from 30 Seconds to Mars too.
