Gisteren werd niet enkel de trailer van Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice vrijgegeven tijdens Comic-Con, maar Warner Bros. vertoonde tevens de trailer van David Ayers Suicide Squad. Deze is helaas nog niet online te bekijken, maar er zijn wel verschillende beschrijvingen online te vinden.
UPDATE: Inmiddels is er een gelekte versie van de trailer online te vinden.
The footage opens with Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) discussing her plan to assemble Task Force X over dinner with a U.S. general, sounding just as calculating and manipulative as you’d expect. Their dialogue plays over Waller entering a top secret, high security underground facility.
Waller: It’s taken some work but I finally have what we need. The worst of the worst.
Waller: Let’s just say I put them in a hole and threw away the hole.
Genereal: There’s rumors, Amanda, that some of them have… abilities.
Waller: Oh yeah. I have seen things. Maybe Superman was some kind of beacon for them to creep back from the shadows. I want to assemble a task force of the most dangerous people on the planet who I think can do some good.
General: They’re bad guys.
Waller: Exactly. And if anything goes wrong we blame them, we have plausible deniability.
General: What makes you think you can control them?
Waller: Because getting people to act against their own self interest is what I do for a living.
Once inside, the camera closes in a few containment cells. Inside them are Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Deadshot (Will Smith), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) and Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Deadshot’s boxing, getting some hits in on a punching bag; El Diablo lighting up; Croc is restrained, strapped to a gurney; Harley swings from the ceiling on gymnastic ribbons. When Waller approaches, Harley asks softly and innocently, like a young child would, “Are you the devil?”
From there the footage brings the action with some quick cuts of Deadshot in full costume scaling down the side of a building during the day, a fire fight inside of a hospital, Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) submerged in a bathtub.
At one point while the whole team is gathering in the street, Deadshot says, “So that’s it, huh? We’re the patsies. We’re some kind of Suicide Squad,” dryly adding, “Let’s go save the world.” After this there are brief scenes of what appears to be Deadshot hugging his daughter, Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley getting cozy, a close-up shot of Croc, Harley cocking her baseball bat like a shotgun, Katana (Karen Fukuhara) drawing her sword. There’s then a voiceover of Harley saying, “You’re in so much trouble,” followed by another quick succession of shots. We hear bits of dialogue from Harley as she’s riding with The Joker (with Batman on the roof), laughingly shouting, “I hope you have insurance,” during the chase.
Later on, Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang quips, “Y’know what they say about the crazy ones?” followed by an eerie, staccato laugh. In the next sequence the Joker enters into a dimly lit room sporting electrodes, informing an unseen victim that, “I’m not gonna kill ya. I’m just gonna hurt ya, really, really bad, ” while looking absolutely deranged.
Rollen in Suicide Squad zijn er o.a. voor Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (The Joker), Jai Courtney (Boomerang) en Cara Delevigne (Enchantress). Suicide Squad gaat in augustus 2016 in première.
