Bad guys? Check. Explosions? Check. Excellent use of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody? Check.
It’s all here in the new Suicide Squad trailer, which promises — and delivers — the “worst heroes ever.” Check it, nerds:
So right about now you’re thinking, “What the !@#$ did I just witness?” Well, here’s what you need to know: The assassin Deadshot (Will Smith), insane bat-loving (but not Batman-loving) villainess Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Aussie nutjob Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) are convicts who are called into service by a government agent (Viola Davis) for a mission so dangerous that it’ll likely end in their deaths. Succeed, however, and they get their criminal records wiped clean. Which would be hella good for someone like Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), a demonic-looking figure who you probably don’t want to bring home to Mom.
And then there’s the Joker (Jared Leto). He’s not part of the squad but being that he and Harley go way back and he’s certifiable, the Bat-baddie is probably going to get in the way.
Lots of stuff is going on in that trailer, so let’s look at the highlights in GIF form:
Some of them are classy.
Some of them aren’t.
Bad guys just get no respect.
Deadshot gets a little roughed up by some guards. Hope he doesn’t get a concussion. #Sorrynotsorry
And here’s your starting lineup:
Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) is the military guy who has to deal with all these weirdos.
When the going gets tough…
The Captain takes the time to open a cold frosty one. Seriously, folks, this is the role Jai Courtney was born to play.
A WHOLE LOT OF ACTION!
No idea at all what’s going on here but it looks hella cool.
‘We’re bad guys. It’s what we do.”
You said it, Harley.
And now … the Joker, ladies and gentlemen.
