Just days after releasing the first trailer for the upcoming DCEU film The Suicide Squad, director James Gunn has now dropped an all new 2nd teaser for he August 6th release which showcases all new and crazy footage for the soft reboot/dequel to the original film which was helmed by david Ayer. This promo is green band in nature so no F-bombs and gratuitous violence this time but we do get to see a bloodthorsty Peacemaker played by John Cena as well as asome boomerang action and more zingy one liners between the cast. Check out the cool as hell new tease below!
The film’s official synopsis reads: Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
The newest entry for The Suicide Squad sees Viola Davis, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, and Joel Kinnaman all returning as Amanda Waller, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, and Rick Flag respectively with new cast members including Michael Rooker as Savant, Flula Borg as Javelin, David Dastmalchian as Polka Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2, Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Mayling NG as Mongal, Peter Capaldi as Thinker, Alice Braga as Solsoria, Pete Davidson as Blackguard, Natha Fillion as TDK, Sean Gunn as Weasel, John Cena as Peace Maker and just recently it was announced that Hollywood action icon Sylvester Stallone is voicing King Shark.
Footage from last year’s DC Fandome looked incredible and this one looks like it’s going to surpass the original by far in terms of craziness and off the chains action set pieces. The Suicide Squad is set to unleash in theaters and HBOMax simultaneously on August 6th!
