Following the disappointing reaction and numbers coming in for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC has a lot riding on Suicide Squad this year – the only other film in 2016 that could give a majority of fans and critics hope in the future of the DC Cinematic Universe. Luckily for them and us, the film looks really good, despite reports of some recent reshoots underway to give the film a lighter and more comedic tone.
Tonight at the MTV Movie Awards, a new trailer for Suicide Squad was released as well and if there was any doubt or worry surrounding the film’s possibly dark tone, the trailer makes it look like the kind of dark that a lot of fans are wanting to see, one that still allows for comedy throughout, that is.
Check out the newest trailer below:
I think that more than anything else, this trailer is the best one for Robbie’s Harley Quinn yet, and her banter with the rest of the team and Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag in particular, looks kind of perfect. There were brief shots of Leto’s Joker as well, though these might be my least favorite looks at the character yet, surprisingly enough, but the one shot of Ben Affleck’s Batman possibly jumping after a falling Harley Quinn should be enough to make all of you fans out there happy as well, especially since Affleck’s Dark Knight was the most well-received aspect of Dawn of Justice.
If DC is trying to recuperate from the critical panning of Batman v Superman though, then it’s looking more and more like Suicide Squad might just be the best thing they could have asked for this year.
Suicide Squad is set to hit theatres on August 5th.
