Can August 5th get here already?!
The Suicide Squad marketing blitz continues as Warner Bros. produced character bios of the main cast.
David Ayer’s upcoming ‘bad guys’ film, featuring a gang of villains from DC Comics, has been marketed hard for six months now. This latest last-minute push finally does show some much needed respect to Squad members hardly featured at all in their trailers and advertisements. this certainly helps it not feel like “It’s Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Some Other People.” Characters such as Katana, Slipknot, Enchantress and Rick Flag are seen in action, Killer Croc gets more dialogue, and Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang looks more likely he will be offering a good chunk of the comedy.
The only thing that makes watching these difficult is that each video bio features Sweet’s best-known hit “Ballroom Blitz,” the song played in their most recent, and best, trailer to date. While the track is fun and has some great energy, hearing the same 15+ seconds of the song, ELEVEN times in a row, my change your tune with how you feel about it. Nevertheless, do not turn down, or mute, your volume, because their are some great lines from the members of Task Force X.
