Just when we’d sat down in a comfy chair to digest the epic showdown that was Batman v Superman, Warner Bros have unleashed another high-kicking, gun-toting, ballroom-blitzing blast of the Suicide Squad.  Details on the plot have been a bit scarce since the last teaser back in January, but the new trailer gives us a bit more insight into the new band of bad guys on the block, namely the following:

1. How do these crazy kids get together?

Just remember, they’re the bad guys

Just remember, they’re the bad guys

Led by sharpshooter Deadshot (Will Smith) and the wonderfully unhinged Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), the crew of disparate and despicable individuals is put together by U.S intelligence officer Amanda Waller (Viola Davies).  The initial threat is still unknown, but if the Suicide Squad fail in their mission, will they die trying or will it be every man for himself?

2. Don’t tell then what to do

Sometimes it’s better left unsaid, actually

The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman has a few choice words for the new group of Super Villains, but they’re not exactly known for following orders.  The chances of them going insane on missions are fairly high, we would say.

3. Harley Quinn is known to be “vexing”   

f she had a hammer, she’d hammer in the morning…

We don’t want to pick favourites too early, but we’re going to.  The new trailer shows Harley is definitely a troublemaker, and knows how to wield a big mallet.  We like her.

4. Batman’s in it!

Wheee

Wheee

Does Batfleck ever rest?  Judging by the new footage, probably not.  There’s also a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glimpse of Ben Affleck’s caped crusader winging it on the back of the Joker’s (Jared Leto) shiny purple Vaydor.

5. The Joker * might * be the bad guy

Who’s laughing now?

Who’s laughing now?

After hearing his maniacal giggle, it looks like the squad are the only people who AREN’T looking forward to meeting Jared Leto’s pesky prankster this August.
