The second trailer for the highly anticipated DC/Warner Brothers movie titled Suicide Squad dropped recently and has the internet all in a buzz. From what this trailer has shown us, this movie looks to not only be very faithful with how the Suicide Squad comic and characters are now in the New 52 universe, but to also have a good amount of humor and some very intense action scenes along with a lot of the squad’s characters’ origins being told throughout. This trailer utilizes Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” throughout with quick cuts of action, characters interacting with one another, humor, and with Harley Quinn having the last line in the trailer which is, “We’re bad guys, it’s what we do.” as she smashes a window that she passes to take a purse she wanted. This trailer gave us a even closer look to some of the fan favorite characters like Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Enchantress and of course The Joker. What was nice about this trailer is that we still don’t know 100% what the story for this movie even is.
We know that Amanda Waller assembles the team to stop a powerful force from rising up and taking over the world. This makes me believe, along with a lot of people on the internet that it will be the Suicide Squad vs. The Enchantress and her demon minions. That alone should make a very cool and fun story to watch, but add in The Joker and who knows where this movie will lead. DC was taking a gamble with this movie and how the tone of it is but I can see it paying off big time. This movie will not only introduce us to a new portrayal of The Joker, (which we haven’t seen on screen since The Dark Knight) but a lot of characters’ first time in a DC movie all together, which is most, if not all the squad members. If this movie does well, then we can for sure see a second one in the mix or even solo outings for certain characters. This trailer for sure pumped me up for this movie; the first teaser shown at SDCC last year got me curious, but this got me full blown interested to see how DC will pull off bringing the infamous Suicide Squad to the big screen this year.
