During last night’s MTV Movie Awards, Warner Bro.s took an opportunity to debut a new trailer for Suicide Squad the next slated movie in the ever-expanding universe of DC Films.
After the increasingly disappointing results that DC is experiencing with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice this trailer might be a good first step in earning back some goodwill from audiences and bringing WB execs down off the ledge a little.
Jared Leto’s joker continues to look incredible, and some have noticed this trailer seems to suggest a much larger Batman presence than we originally thought. It also showcases that this films has a lot of humor to offer, which stands in stark contrast to rumors that the last trailer contained the only humor in the film, and that the three weeks of reshoots Suicide Squad is undergoing is to “funny-up” the film. Seems pretty fun and funny to me. I, for one, cannot wait.
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th, 2016.
