Well, with the NBA finals underway, it was only a matter of time before ‘Suicide Squad‘ started advertising during the big games, as Warner Brothers has been keen on promoting their new film in every possible venue, wanting to make sure it is the kind of hit they were hoping ‘Batman V Superman‘ would be. The newest promo (below) is not necessarily all that different from what we have seen before (a lot of the same footage and focused mainly on Harley Quinn and Deadshot) but it does have a few snippets of new footage, and definitely helps sell the basic plot to anyone not already familiar with the infamous team.
In other ‘Suicide Squad’ news, Jared Leto also spoke recently about the exciting project in a conversation with Total Film, claiming that the Joker is:
“…the only villain who may be more infamous is the devil. The Joker is an icon, a legend, the baddest of the bad and seems to be having the most fun. Hard not to be a fan of that. I knew I was going to have to dive deep and go to a place I had never gone before.”
Of course, we will have to take his word for it as the Joker has appeared very little in the trailers and promos for the film (rightfully so as they should save him for the main event), but I am definitely looking forward to Leto’s interpretation of the character. For now, check out the new promo for yourself and then hit the comments section below to let us know your thoughts!
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
