Check Out… Suicide Squad

Wow, this is a hell of a trailer in fairness. I never heard about the Suicide Squad comics before but it sounds like a great concept, and something well worth introducing into the new DC Cinema Universe. The first installment of this new universe was Zac Snyder’s Superman outing Man of Steel. The forthcoming installments in this world include Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.

The Squad entails a group of villains who are charged with ‘suicide missions’ – essentially bad guys made to do good things. These bad guys include Will Smith as Deadshot, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang (originally cast with Tom Hardy), Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and, last but not least, Jared Leto as the Joker. Although initial online photos of Leto as the Joker were a little under-whelming, he seems much more promising in this trailer. All round, it looks weird and wonderful and something that will really stand by itself.
