Warner Bros. has been very strategic in the promotion of their upcoming release ‘Suicide Squad.’ From them showing teaser photos from the set, to debuting the movie poster, and the releasing trailers and TV spots, they have done an excellent job at increasing the amount of footage fans get to see as we draw nearer to the summer premiere. Yesterday, the studio released two new TV spots showing a fair amount of new footage. The last video below is by far the most extensive and revealing trailer to date. All three videos feature heavy on Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jared Leto’s Joker, and of course Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. Those three characters look to be the main characters in the film, with characters such as Enchantress, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, Katana playing in supporting roles. Rick Flag does get a bit more footage and El Diablo has been shown some more love. Surprisingly absent from these latest TV spots, and seen for about a second in the Blitz trailer, is Adam Beach’s Slipknot. From early reviews, however, it’s been said that Beach’s portrayal is fantastic.
Suicide Squad will feature Jared Leto (Joker), Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Cara Delevingne (Julie Moon / Enchantress) and Karen Fukuhara (Tatsu Yamashiro / Katana).
Here’s the newly released TV spots, followed by the 2-1/2 minute ‘Blitz’ trailer. Suicide Squad arrives in theaters on August 5th.
