There are 2 types of people in the world, good people and bad people.
Without villains, there is simply no heroes. If you find villains a little more exciting than heroes, then you’re going to love “Suicide Squad“, the upcoming antihero-centric film directed by David Ayer.
Hosted by filmmaker/writer/lifelong comics fan Kevin Smith, the clip featured a special guest from DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns. It offered viewers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the upcoming DC movies, including “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad”, as well as glimpses of DC’s most famous Super Villains as well.
The half-hour special also included interviews with some of the creative forces behind the much-anticipated film franchise including Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Zack Snyder, and Patty Jenkins.
It wasn’t the first time that an exclusive footage of Warner Bros’ upcoming DC Comics film made its way onto the Internet before its official release. In April 2015, the studio was also forced to debut the teaser trailer for Zack Snyder‘s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” earlier than scheduled after it was leaked online.

Based on the original DC Comic of the same name, “Suicide Squad” centres on a group of supervillains who find themselves going on a most unlikely mission for a shot at redemption. However, the mission will probably kill them all.
The movie stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. The new “Suicide Squad” trailer will be different from the one thatdebuted during San Diego Comic-Con 2015 as the latter was only intended to be a sizzle reel.
Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are producing the film while Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson, Geoff Johns, and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” director Zack Snyder serve as executive producers. Ayer is directing it based on Justin Marks’ screenplay.
UPDATE (11th April, 3pm):
The latest trailer for DC Comics’ band of misfits premiered at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards earlier today.
The new clip shows the squad getting along fairly well (save for some Deadshot vs El Diablo squabbling), some drinking, some fighting, and a glimpse at Batman (or rather, his Batmobile). It doesn’t reveal much but it does contain some never before seen footage. Just enough to get you excited about the movie ;)
“Suicide Squad” is slated for release on 4th August 2016.
