A New Suicide Squad Trailer Makes Us Root for the Villains

Late last night, Warner Bros. released the brand new trailer for Suicide Squad from, director David Ayer.

This is really interesting, because this universe (The DC Cinematic Universe) has often been chided by fans for being dour and depressing. Yet this film, about a bunch of murderous psychopaths, seems (at least for now) like it’s the most fun we’ll be having at the movies this year. Is it that, in a universe so dark and gloomy where everything is in shades of grey, we are getting a sort of “Stockholm Syndrome” and the villains are starting to look like our friends rather than our enemies? I guess we’ll have to wait until August 5th to find out.

Also, for what it’s worth, Jared Leto’s Joker looks better all the time.
