On Saturday afternoon, courtesy of Suicide Squad director David Ayer, the highly-anticipated film featuring the infamous villains of DC Comics debuted its first teaser at Comic-Con. It’s 2015, so of course someone recorded it on their cell phone.
We held back publishing it yesterday not knowing the recourse that Warner Bros. would take with the film’s “leaked” footage. However, it appears to be making the rounds now swimmingly, so who are we to not bring it to your eyes!? And, man oh man, does the first glimpse at Jared Leto playing The Joker look like it’s going to be epic in the most maniacal, sinister way possible.
Suicide Squad features a STAR-STUDDED cast including Will Smith as Deadshot, Ben Affleck as Batman, Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
