Jared Leto’s The Joker is the latest to get the spotlight with a Suicide Squad character-focused promo.
Tidbits of new footage are given up in the new trailer, which expands on Joker snippets you may remember from previous trailers, including a look at Batfleck swinging into frame.
Leto has big shoes to fill, especially seeing as Heath Ledger’s highly acclaimed performance is still in many minds as arguably the best interpretation of the villain we’ve ever seen. No pressure.
Suicide Squad opens in Australia on August 4 and in the U.S. on August 5.
Suicide Squad synopsis:
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?
