TRAILER: ‘Suicide Squad’ Promises Even More Batman Than We Thought
Suicide Squad has been given yet another amazing trailer thanks to the people over at Warner Bros.
It features a lot of new footage including more Joker and shockingly more Batman as well, playing-up the action and humor of Suicide Squad.
Warner Bros. are seemingly very confident in the film as word from Jai Courtney their reshoots are to add more action scenes, and it’s even been reported by the trades a sequel could begin production as early as next year. The possible DC film slated for that October 2018 release spot might just be Suicide Squad 2.
A rumor coming from Heroic Hollywood states that test screenings of the film have revealed there’s more Batman in the film than we previously expected. Not surprising, as he does feature a lot in the trailers and Ben Affleck was spotted as Bruce Wayne on the set last year during the Toronto shoot.
This new trailer seemingly does allude to Batman playing a bigger role in the film, a majority of the characters in the film are apart of his rogues gallery. Adding more Batman could also help gathering new audiences to support both Suicide Squad and Affleck’s solo Batman film.
We and others have pointed out The Batman could be that DC movie releasing in November 2019.
Umberto also nailed that Ballroom Blitz would be the song chosen for this trailer.
Here are some interesting screengrabs from the new footage.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
