New Suicide Squad trailer looks amazing. Never underestimate the power of Will Smith in a commercial movie. PLUS The Joker & Margot Robbie!

Suicide Squad’s first trailer, which was released in January, was nothing short of amazing, even more so with Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” playing in the background. As the Verge reports, the first Suicide Squad trailer showed a bunch of bad guys, known as the Suicide Squad, being released from prison to do a black ops mission for the government in exchange for clemency. To date, the first Suicide Squad trailer has been viewed 44.7 million times on YouTube. If you haven’t seen it yet or want to see it again, see the video below.
On Sunday, a few Suicide Squad cast members attended the MTV Movie Awards to debut a new clip from the movie. Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, and Cara Delevingne teased the audience with the new footage, and the response was overwhelming. As the Los Angeles Times reports, Leto shared a few words before the clip was played.
“Sweat, blood and semen… it’s all in this movie. It was the experience of a lifetime and I can’t wait to share it with you crazy…”
This time, the trailer was set to the music of Grace feat. G-Eazy’s “You Don’t Own Me” and Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz.” The Blitz Trailer, as Warner Bros. calls it, begins with a government agent saying, “What if Superman had decided to fly down, rip off the roof of the White House, and grab the President right out of the Oval Office? Who would have stopped him?” Enter the Suicide Squad.
The Suicide Squad consists of several comic book baddies, including The Joker (Jared Leto), Deadshot (Will Smith), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Slipknot (Adam Beach), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Katana, (Karen Fukuhara, and El Diablo (Jay Hernandez).

The new trailer shows some of the characters in action. Aside from some action-packed sequences from the squad, the new trailer also gives a sneak peek of Batman in action. As the Independent reports, there are rumors about Batman’s role in Suicide Squad, saying that he takes it upon himself to be an unofficial chaperone of the baddies, as he is not too pleased with the government’s decision to utilize the squad. Still, other rumors suggest that the Batman scene could be a flashback. No one knows for sure. See the new Suicide Squad trailer below.
“We knew this was such a big moment for ‘Suicide Squad’ fans that we wanted to literally bring the movie to life in front of the screaming crowd. Fire and explosions were the only kind of chaos worthy of megastars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Cara Delevingne.”
The event was a chaos indeed, as reports say that fans of the movie almost pushed over the barricades that held them back when the Suicide Squad actors appeared.
Below is the official synopsis of the film.
“It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?”
Suicide Squad will be released in theaters on August 5.
