The new Suicide Squad trailer hit the internet last night, and it’s safe to say it caused a buzz. Set to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” this new offering gives a better look at the Squad in action.
Below we have five awesome moments from the trailer which stood out.
1. The baptism of Harley.
You only briefly get a glimpse at it, but it definitely looks as though The Joker is emerging from a pool of some kind with Harley in his arms. There are lots of different colours in the pool, which would explain Harley’s hair and possibly the pallor of her skin. Just before this, you see The Joker jumping from a ledge to join Harley in the pool. It would seem this is after The Joker has broken down Harleen F. Quinzel, and Harley Quinn is born.
2. Joker and his toys.
As the camera pans away and upwards, we see the Joker lying on the floor, surrounded by an arsenal of weapons, laughing gleefully in a way only The Joker can. Jared Leto looks as though he has done a fantastic job in creating a new version of the psycho, which was no small feat when you look at who has come before him.
3. Harley’s humour.
This is a bit of a cheat as it’s more than one moment in the trailer, but it was hard to choose the best one. From Harley talking to the voices in her head, to taking time out from the mission to steal a handbag because, as she so finely puts it “We’re bad guys. It’s what we do.” Margot Robbie is clearly going to get more than a fair share of the screen time. If you didn’t love Harley Quinn before, you’re going to love her after this.
4. Deadshot’s target practice.
It’s fair to say Will Smith didn’t get the reaction he wanted when announced he’d be playing Deadshot. Fans worried he would get more screen time than anyone else and hog the film. After watching this part of the trailer, where he is picking off people left, right and centre, I hope we see a lot more of this. It’s exciting to see him playing such a bad guy, and to see how he fits in with the rest of the Squad.
5. Captain Boomerang’s sneaky drink.
There were moments in the trailer with this character that stood out. Hiding behind a car so he can have a cold beer was absolutely one of them. It gave a nice break in the section, and it’s pretty funny. Another one worth mentioning was when he is let loose from the bag and just starts to attack the guards around him. It looked like some drunk fighting and hopefully there will plenty of this for Jai Courtney. Maybe this is his breakout role, or, at least, a role that changes perception on the actor.
Starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as The Enchantress, Jared Leto as The Joker, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Adam Beach as Slipknot and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.
Its worth mentioning that Scott Eastwood’s character is still not named on IMDB, as they are keeping it as much of a secret as they can.
