Warners dropped a new trailer for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. With each passing trailer we get a better picture of what Gunn’s take will be – it appears he is unabashedly leaning into the beautifully odd and quirky.
From a myriad of colorful characters, donning bright costumes, to crazy action sequences and dark, dirty and quirky humor James Gunn appears to be putting his stamp on this iteration of “The Squad”. The trailer also gives us a better sense of what the story involves in this outing. Specifically, Idris Elba’s character Bloodsport. It shows his motivation for joining the team, as well as hints at some of the past misdeeds that landed him in the clink. Heads up, he had a run in and seemed to get the better of the big blue boy scout from Krypton.
The Suicide Squad opens in theaters and HBOMax on August 6th. Until then check out the latest trailer here.
