This ‘Suicide Squad’ Fake Trailer Is Pretty Sick, Bro
After a few months of seeing images from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, we’re all pretty much on the same page with our expectations: street thug Joker, Hot Topic Harley Quinn, various dudes with ‘tudes and an aesthetic that’s like “what if there was a goth gang on the east side?” Nerdist has put together a fake trailer that’s basically exactly what you think the first trailer for Suicide Squad is going to be. It is, as the Squad says, sick.
We still have no idea what Jared Leto’s Joker is going to sound like, but the video above does a good job of imagining his weaselly voice while capitalizing on the humor of all those silly tattoos — a tattoo of Calvin peeing on Batman is definitely something this version of the Joker would view as the height of hilarity.
Harley Quinn does some Juggalo graffiti, which is fitting for a character who looks like a Hot Topic-loving Juggalette, while Enchantress is a Nu Metal goth into safety pins and Korn. (Although I would have pegged her more for a New Age goth or a Forever 21 goth who likes Lorde.)
Oh, and they all use e-cigs because what is more douche-tastic than e-cigs? Oh, right, the Entourage theme song. Oh YEAH.
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016. We’ll see how well this trailer matches up with Ayer’s version later this year, I imagine.
