While this year has already given us a slew of superhero movies, the villains will take over later this summer when Suicide Squad hits theaters. While we don't know when the next full trailer will debut, Warner Bros. has released three TV spots which feature new footage. We get never-before-seen moments featuring The Joker (Jared Leto) and even a brief glimpse of Batman (Ben Affleck). With less than three months left until Suicide Squad hits theaters, we'll have to wait and see how much more footage is released.
From director David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch) comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness), Oscar winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix's House of Cards) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Doubt). It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, 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?
The all-star ensemble cast for Suicide Squad includes Will Smith (Deadshot), |Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), and Jay Hernandez (El Diablo). Scott Eastwood and Ray Olubowale also appear in the movie, but their characters have not been revealed. We'll have to wait and see if their characters are confirmed between now and the release date.
Suicide Squad will be going up against The Weinstein Company's drama The Founder and EuropaCorp's comedy Nine Lives on August 5. This superhero adventure should have no trouble taking down The Founder and Nine Lives at the box office, but we'll have to wait and see. While we'll have to wait and see how this movie fares in theaters, Warner Bros. is already making plans for sequels and spinoffs.
Warner Bros. recently announced a Harley Quinn spinoff that may also feature characters like Batgirl and the Brids of Prey. Another report revealed that the studio is considering spinoffs for both The Joker and Boomerang as well, but it isn't known how far along in development any of these projects are. Another report claimed the studio wants director David Ayer to come back for Suicide Squad 2, with the studio eyeing an early 2017 shoot, although that hasn't been confirmed. Take a look at these new TV spots for Suicide Squad below.
