One of the big reveals at Comic-Con this past weekend was the trailer for Warner Brothers’ Suicide Squad, which leaked out of the event and was bootleged onto YouTube. The shot-on-cellphone video barely did the trailer justice, and thankfully the official version has arrived today.
While Suicide Squad doesn’t quite fall into the horror genre, we thought it worthy of being spotlighted here on iHorror due to the fact that it’s not so much a superhero movie as it is a super villain movie. DC’s most evil villains unite for David Ayer’s film, including none other than The Joker.
First appearing way back in 1959 and going through many iterations in the decades since, the members of the so-called ‘Suicide Squad’ are given a chance to redeem themselves through dangerous missions. Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Rick Flagg, and Captain Boomerang join The Joker in the film.
Check out the official Suicide Squad trailer below, which gives us our first look at Jared Leto as the brand new Joker. Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman and Ben Affleck (as Batman) round out the cast.
