Earlier this week, a description of the second trailer for Suicide Squad revealed that new footage would be arriving in early 2016, but an official date was not given. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long for that info, with The CW Network announcing today that the Suicide Squad trailer will debut during a new DC Comics special entitled DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, airing next month. The half-hour special will also feature new footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Wonder Woman.
It's a full night of action from DC Comics on Tuesday, January 19, 2016, as The CW presents two all-new half-hour specials, DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now (9:00-9:30pm ET/PT), and DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League (9:30-10:00pm ET/PT). The second special features the world premiere of the new trailer for the upcoming feature film Suicide Squad. The specials will premiere following an original episode of The Flash (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT).
DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now is an in-depth look at the origin stories of the heroes and villains of the highly-anticipated new series, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, premiering Thursday, January 21, 2016 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT). The special features show clips and interviews from Legends, Arrow and The Flash executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer and Wendy Mericle. Their Time Is Now introduces viewers to the immortal madman Vandal Savage, the time master Rip Hunter, and the motley band of heroes and rogues he assembles to try to save the future of humanity: Hawkman, Hawkgirl, White Canary, The Atom, Firestorm, Captain Cold, and Heat Wave.
DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League invites viewers behind the scenes of the exciting new movies coming out of the DC Films universe. The special culminates with the thrilling world premiere of the all-new trailer for Suicide Squad, DC's misfit crew of antiheroes forced into saving the world this summer, with director David Ayer. Hosted by filmmaker/writer/lifelong comics fan Kevin Smith, with special guest DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns, the special showcases the explosive landscape of DC's greatest heroes, kicking off with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in theaters this March, and with a sneak peek from the upcoming Wonder Woman feature film.
Get a look at never-before-seen footage, and see interviews with such stars as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, and directors Zack Snyder and Patty Jenkins - just a few of the creative forces behind the much-anticipated film franchise that will bring together the greatest collective of Super Heroes in the upcoming Justice League feature film. And because no Super Hero could make his or her mark without a truly formidable foe, the special also provides glimpses of DC's most famous Super Villains. Stay tuned for more on this special, and be sure to check back next month for the new Suicide Squad trailer.
