If there’s one thing that the MTV Movie Awards are good for, is a few new trailers from some high profile releases. One of these was the new trailer for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad (the third for those keeping count).
It gives us a quick recap of what we knew from the other trailers, while also giving us plenty of the comedy/fun that was lacking in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Find Chris’ review here), to the point where there were rumors of reshoots happening in order to add a more lighthearted tone. Now that Dawn of Justice is in theaters, the studio felt comfortable releasing footage of Ben Affleck as Batman, which is certainly intriguing.
This trailer makes great use of “The Ballroom Blitz” for its montage of action sequences, featuring some great footage of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and of course, Jared Leto as The Joker.
Based on everything that we’ve seen so far, I don’t know if we need to be worried about the tone at all. Suicide Squad looks like a great time at the theater.
Enjoy the trailer below.
Suicide Squad will be released by Warner Bros on August 5.
