A Special Movie News!
Tonight Warner Brothers/DC pulled out all the stops with their “Dawn of the Justice League” special (with geek icon Kevin Smith hosting) on the CW channel. There was a plethora of things revealed and talked about during this special. However, the big headliner was the reveal of the first official trailer for “Suicide Squad” (remember the original comic-con one wasn’t supposed to be released until it had a massive leak online).
Clocking in at 2:31, we aren’t given too much of what the story is about (much like the comic-con one) . The trailer does a good job of highlighting all the colorful characters including more footage of Margot Robbie as fan favorite Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as the Joker.
A much improved trailer from DC’s last big one (“Batman V Superman” I’m looking at you), this looks to be chaotic, fun, have a strong dose of dark humor, and a more adult tone (did I mention there was Queen in the trailer?). Although to put it simply this is DC’s wildcard. Not many people outside of the comic book fan community knows who they are. Much like “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Ant-Man” for Marvel, DC is looking to sell the general public on a group of unknown characters (with nearly all of them being villains).
Suicide Squad will be released August 5th of this year and is directed by David Ayer, and starring, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Karen Fukuhara and Adewal Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
