Let the record show that even though they’re still playing catchup to Marvel in the superhero team-up genre, DC Comics was the first to develop a supervillain team-up movie. That would be Suicide Squad, and the movie’s first trailer was shown to Comic-Con crowds over the weekend before making its way to the internet.
Suicide Squad is about a team made up of the worst scum and villainy in the DC universe, enlisted by the government for missions that are classified top-secret and, uh, suicidal. Will Smith and Margot Robie are Deadshot and Harley Quinn, respectively, but the star of the show would seem to be Jared Leto’s Joker.
You can see the whole gang in action in the first official trailer for Suicide Squad below. The movie is slated for release in August, 2016, a few short months after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In the meantime you can check out the official Suicide Squad site right here.
