The first trailer for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad has dropped, which is great! Really! I’m just a little bit disappointed. Not because of the movie itself, no, no. But when I heard people on Twitter last night talking about a new Suicide Squad trailer today, I thought it was about the upcoming Rocksteady game. That’s kind of on me.
The trailer, which for some reason can’t be embedded by choice, is a lot more lighthearted than the usual DC fare, which I personally find pretty appealing. It definitely has a Guardian of the Galaxy vibe, which makes sense, considering it’s from director James Gunn. It’s also a soft reboot, so they’re throwing a “The” in front of the title rather than a “2” at the end.
The Suicide Squad will, in theory, hit theaters and HBO Max on August 6.
