After an online leak (duh), Warner Brothers has released the first footage from Suicide Squad, which made quite an impression at Comic-Con.
After the footage leaked online over the weekend, WB’s marketing chief Sue Kroll said in a statement: “It’s unfortunate and ultimately damaging that one individual broke a long-standing trust we have enjoyed with our fans at the convention by posting early material, which, at this point, was not intended for a wider audience.”
Again, duh. Did the beans counters actually stop to notice how many people also watched their Batman v Superman trailer? A few.
Revolving around DC super villains hired for a dangerous mission by the government. If they succeed, their criminal records will be wiped clean. Suicide Squad opens August 5, 2016 and is directed by David Ayer.
Other villains include Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. The trailer finishes with the first official footage of Jared Leto’s Joker.
