Mama mia, let me go.

The new Suicide Squad trailer is here. The first teaser trailer from San Diego Comic-Con was released last July. All you need to do is watch this first official trailer right now.

The movie arrives in theaters on August 5.

What did you think of the trailer? Did it change your expectations?

It's perfect, just as good as the first BvS trailer. Seriously. I'm sold on everyone, even Jai Courtney. Which is something I'd never thought I'd say.

Robbie's Harley is the ONLY reason I'm excited for this. She's killing it.

Looks pretty cool. Ido love how all the super hero movie trailers either have the ominous bass notes with voice overs while showing serious scenes or use fun songs that make you laugh while watching because of the absurdity.

I would like to see a supercut of all the trailers from Avengers to Jurassic World to Fantastic Four, etc showing that they are all exactly the same format.

That was a great trailer (especially how they worked one of Queen's best songs into the trailer), and now the wait for this potentially-awesome movie has gotten even harder. Still not the biggest fan of Leto's Joker, but perhaps his take on the clown prince of crime in the movie when I see it will change my mind. I am happy that DC seems to be putting great effort into this movie, and hopefully it pays off for them.

EDIT: Margot Robbie is killing it as Harley Quinn. Can't wait to see her in action!

This pretty much confirms that DC is desperately trying to make this their Guardians of the Galaxy. I just never imagined they'd just copy and paste themes directly out of their Guardian's trailer.

  • Both have some law enforcement figure derisively listing off a character and abilities.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy uses "Hook on a Feeling" (1974). Suicide Squad played "Bohemian Rhapsody" (1975)

I actually like Leto for the Joker. I just think Suicide Squad is being rushed out. These aren't villains to the general audience. They're going to be introduced as anit-heroes. I really think they should have been introduced in other hero's movies first.

This looks far better than BvS. Sorry not sorry. I'm just hoping this is BOTH a critical and financial success.

Biting Guardians HARD!!!! And Joker shouldn't be in this movie. But I like the feel, even if they hit the "but we're bad guys who are good guys but we're bad at being good" thing over the head.

@foxxfireart: I can't tell if your being sarcastic or something but........ Someone reading off what people do is an easy and quick way to give you the run down of characters, rather then developing scenes to try and get the audience figuring things out.

And if the song fits then it fits, there's nothing wrong with that.

This is going to be an awsome movie.

So you'd of preferred we not get suicide squad for 15 years? Because that's how long it'd take to get all these villains introduced as villains in other movies. Even more if you take into account more well known villains probably coming first.

@ravenkingxxx: Extremes from both fandoms are going to say this is the best/worst thing and there fandom is superior. Personally the Comicon trailer did nothing for me but this had the right amount of character moments and energy that make me asking for more.

Still iffy on Leto Joker though that comes with any new performance of an old character.

Joker is the best part. He looks great.

DC thinks they've sold me because they put together some footage with an awesome song in the background.

So DC's looking to get in on the Guardiansof the Galaxy game, not surprsiing in the least bit. And that's not a bad thing.

Surprised at “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen actually going over so well, it's an overplayed song. It provides an energetic and thematic spine for the trailer. The SDCC footage wasn’t as spectacular as this but it got across the meloncholy of the Squad, how disregarded these people are and their only seeming “redemption” is being further abused by the Goverment. The slower parts of the trailer get that niceley.

And then it changes tempo and becomes a big oi’ll crazy action movie. Enchantress is indeed possesed by the spirit of an Evil Witch and seemingly the reasoning for the outbreak in the City. The amount of the weird being in this trailer - vine demon, Enchantress, Soultaker sword, Tattooed Man maybe - is a real surprsie.

The best thing though is how different this looks compared to Batman v Superman. That marketing is the no fun times, deadly serious to the point of undoing. The marketing for this seems to get the insanity of everything and how a playful (and perhaps cynical) attitude are good ways to narrate things.

This also looks like the role where Jai Courtney manages some screenpresence, and looks like an utter trash man.

Lookforward to the continual weird cult of Joker, no matter how hard they try there will be people who just lap him up no matter how weird and dispecable they make him.

Looks great. Looking forward to seeing it. This trailer had me at Bohemian Rhapsody, one of my favorite songs.

I have a feeling hard-core extreme DC fans will hate this and be very vocal about it, and everyone else in the world will love it. Will Smith just looks cool again.

@tparks: But DC is great because its serious, no jokes, darkness, no parents, no smiles, serious. Not like Marvel with their quips, well narrated characters, (mostly) emotional fallout, and films that use broad socio political concepts as touchstones for their global blockbusters.

Really hope Eastwood isn't Deathstroke, because that would be a massive mistake.

Other than that it looks fucking amazing! Really embracing the weirdness and fantasy element of the DCU. Hope Joker has some fun interaction with Killer Croc like maybe the shoes joke from AA :p

Was I the only one who thought bohemian rhapsody was out of place here? Way too complex song for shallow action set pieces.

The action scenes look really cool but everything else seems garbage to me

I cant believe people saying they were sold on this just because of Bohemian Rapsody, I have to admit the song almost got me excited too, but try to watch the trailer again but this time muted and see if you get the same excitement

Definitely did it's job of bringing interest back to it. It was pretty much off my radar until now. And though Margot Robbie looks like Harley come to life her voice was pretty underwhelming.

Other than that trailer was good and the music choice was on point. Just hope this is the tone of the film and it's not a bait and switch and go to a super serious note when it comes to actually watching the film.

At this point, I try to ignore most internet comments, as they are bound to hate just to hate. People comparing this to GOTG...come on. Just cause they both have old (awesome) songs and humor doesn't make them the same.
