A second Suicide Squad movie trailer is reportedly on its way next month, according to Heroic Hollywood. It’s rumored to arrive around the time of the Superbowl or NFL Playoffs. Revealed is a footage breakdown of the trailer done to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and gives fans a visual as the footage is described.
There looks to be some newer footage in addition to whatever was shown at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con. The previous trailer showed a lot of the Suicide Squad crew under containment in some kind of secure facility, and other footage shows them out and about and seeing some action.
Reportedly, the second Suicide Squad movie trailer tells a story of how they were released from their incarceration, which is not unlike some prison break movies where inmates are unexpectedly released in secret. For instance, in one scene, it shows Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) busting through a body bag. Interestingly enough, this is quite similar to prison breaks in other movies, be it when a prisoner escapes hiding in a laundry bin or even a body bag.
Rick Flagg, played by Robocop and The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman, is seen going through files of each of the significant Suicide Squad members. Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) is present in the room with Flagg.
Perhaps he’s researching the prospects before gathering them up for the team? Flagg is naming off members with some short footage and dialogue giving a brief description of their disturbing abilities.
“Deadshot. Uhh… shoots people. Crocodile. He eats people.”
Footage of Diablo, Enchantress, and Harley Quinn also follow, along with Flagg naming their situation, too.
“He burns people. You’re possessed by a witch. And she’s just crazy.”
As the Suicide Squad trailer continues, we fast forward to Jared Leto’s joker character. If anyone recalls the first trailer, he doesn’t seem incarcerated like the others.
Now, he’s shown slapping someone’s face as he says, “I can’t wait to show you my toys.”
This is rather funny, as could this be a nod to the original Tim Burton Batman. It’s rather reminsecent to Jack Nicholson’s “Where did he get those wonderful toys?” comment when outwitted by the Dark Knight. Perhaps the Suicide Squad Joker has smartened up?
Near the end of the Suicide Squad trailer, it shows Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn doing a smash-and-grab at a department store, snatching a purse.
Rick Flagg says, “Seriously, the he** is wrong with you people?”
Harley replies, “We’re bad guys. It’s what we do.”
This one-liner gives more of a Firefly feel to it, a sci-fi western show created by Avengers’ director Joss Whedon that only lasted one season. If anyone recalls Jayne Cobb, played by Adam Baldwin, before they commit their crime he says, “Let’s be bad guys.”
A Suicide Squad synopsis was revealed some time ago via a write-up of a collectibles product. It seemed to give a hint of what they would be opposing. Some kind of “enigmatic, insuperable entity.” That said, some of the movie’s promotional photos don’t show him in a group shot and because of this, the Joker could be thought of as this “enigmatic entity.” Also, Enchantress may be thought of as an option considering she had acquired some bio-weaponry, according to the Inquisitr.
Keep in mind, Rick Flagg has noted in her file in the Suicide Squad movie trailer claiming she is “possessed by a witch.” Later in the trailer, Boomerang is attacking monsters that could be possibly of Enchantress’ doing.
Incubus is also mentioned as being a part of the upcoming trailer. This entity is said to be a creation of Enchantress, according to comic book lore. Movie Pilot speculated that she could possibly be the movie’s antagonist. There was a time where she went by the name of June Moone, who was once a kind-hearted person, but came under the influence of evil. Perhaps this evil has any connection with Incubus?
The Suicide Squad movie, directed by David Ayer, is said to be released on August 5, 2016.
