If you didn’t tune into DC’s big Dawn of the Justice League special tonight on The CW, then you missed the official debut of the new trailer for Suicide Squad. Lucky for you, the trailer has arrived online and the Worst Heroes Ever have assembled, joining their villainous forces to take down something much worse than their badness combined.
The new trailer is set to Queen’s iconic “Bohemian Rhapsody” and is packed with footage we see Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag assembling the Squad and trying to whip them into shape, plus glimpses of the entire crew losing their minds in lock-up before they come together to…collectively lose their minds. We still don’t know exactly who they’re fighting yet, but we do get one piece of very interesting footage: the “creation” of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, with Jared Leto’s Joker diving into a vat of chemicals to fish her out:
Honestly, the more we see of Leto’s Joker amid the wacky and wild chaos of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, the less he seems like the most bonkers thing in it — and that’s good, right?
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5.
