Audiences were wowed by the first Suicide Squad teaser trailer at Comic-Con this past weekend, where fans learned more about director David Ayer's DC super villain action-epic. But that wasn't the only thing to make waves. The movie got a brand new logo, after showing off a much more familiar one earlier this year at CinemaCon. The original movie logo was an exact copy from the New 52 Comics. This latest title treatment offers a more movie-friendly take, along with what is sure to become an iconic smiley face immediately associated with the soon-to-be franchise.
Warner Bros. made Suicide Squad the big surprise at their Hall H panel at Comic-Con, which also included Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Pan and The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. Production is still under way in Toronto, but that didn't stop the filmmaker and his crew from swinging by for a little show and tell. David Ayer had this to say to his audience.
"We were shooting last night in Toronto but we had to come down to report in to Hall H because you guys run this s-t! We're making this movie for you, right here. It's all about canon, it's all about being faithful to the source material. You guys know who you are, and know what you want, and you're going to get it with this show. All this good vs. evil s--t is kind of played out. It's time for bad vs. evil. It's time for a movie about bad guys! Who's got the best bad guys out there? DC Comics, the best villains. Now, I'm not trying to start a East Coast-West Coast feud with Marvel Comics, but someone has to say the truth."
The filmmaker then showed the enthusiastic crowd the first footage from this superhero movie. It ended with the new logo you see below. Joining the director at this monumental occasion were cast members, Karen Fukuhara (Katana), Adam Beach (Slipknot), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Viola Davis, Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Will Smith (Deadshot), with Jared Leto the only main cast member not present. Before leaving, Will Smith addressed the Hall H crowd.
"We are banging out something that is absolutely fantastic. We'll see y'all next year!"
You can take a look at the new Suicide Squad logo below. It isn't know when the teaser trailer will be made to the public. But it is known that the first 'official' trailer will be an alternate version of the one seen at Comic-Con, which was meant for 'fans only'. If you look hard enough, you can still find it on the Internet, somewhere. In the meantime, enjoy the new logo.
