King Shark, Bloodshot and the Iconic Harley Quinn Shine in the R-Rated Trailer
The first trailer for the highly anticipated film, The Suicide Squad, has finally dropped. Will James Gunn‘s follow up to the 2016 movie be enough to save the franchise?
Yes, DC’s Suicide Squad is back and let’s just say this one looks MUCH better than its predecessor.
For one thing … it doesn’t look like Hot Topic threw up on A-list celebs who were told to try to act as edgy as possible.
In addition to Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn, we see some familiar faces such as Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney).
James Gunn’s film will feature new characters like Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena) and King Shark (Sylvester Stallone).
If you remember … 2016’s Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer, was not met with as much enthusiasm. Although it featured a star-studded cast, the film’s plot and style was bloated.
In my opinion, it tried WAY too hard to be DC’s version of Guardians of the Galaxy … ironically directed by James Gunn!
In fact, Gunn joined The Suicide Squad after he was ousted from Disney when some past tweets caused him to be cancelled. He has since been reinstated as director of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
