A new trailer for James Gunn’s upcoming film The Suicide Squad is here. And this is not an April Fool’s joke. The new trailer slightly recycles shots of the old trailer, but most of it is new footage. Every single thing about this film looks very good.
While the trailer retains the humor, the new trailer also promises honesty in the film. While the characters are still colorful and tone light (despite the R-rating and accidental violence), the film will also have passages. This is appropriate, because Suicide Squad as a superside-super-supero team is ridiculous, but also very tragic.
Gun, known to the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise’s MCU, re-reveals the magic of compelling unwanted and obscure comic book characters. Nobody would have imagined characters like Polka-Dot Man and Ratchacker, it would be part of a big-budget studio production.
Overall, the film looks like a blast, and needs a lot of improvement from the 2016 original. This is a soft reboot of the original.
Viola Davis, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnan and Jay Courtney return to their roles of Amanda Waller, Harley Quinn, Rick Flagg and Captain Boomerang respectively.
New characters include Bloodsport, Peacemaker, The Thinker, Blackguard, Polka-Dot Man, Sawant, Arm-Fall-of-Boy, Ratchacker, King Shark, Weasel, The Javelin and others by Idris Elba, John Cena, Peter Capaldi, David Dustmalchian, Michael Rooker, Nathan Fillion, Daniela Melchior, Steve Aige, Sean Gunn, and Flula Borg.
The official synopsis reads, “Welcome to hell — aka Belle Reeve, the prison with the highest death rate in America.

And as usual, One wrong move and they are dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate or Waller himself). If someone has placed bets, the smart money is against them – all Sh.
