The latest trailer for Suicide Squad has been revealed early this morning. Set to the sound of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, the trailer introduces the DC comics super villains. If you’ve been living in the city over the past year, you’ve probably heard that the film was shot in part in Toronto. Check out the official trailer below and let us know if you can spot any Toronto landmarks.
According to director David Ayer, the world may not be ready for Leto’s portrayal of The Joker. Discussing Leto’s intensity, Ayer told USA Today:
“The commitment to the role, you’re going to see that really shine through in a way that you’re not used to seeing actors in movies really go all the way with every little moment and every little breath. You’re going to get taken on a journey with Jared that I don’t know that everyone’s ready for, but I think it will be amazing…It really made an event when he would show up on set,” Ayer also said of Leto. “There was almost a pageantry to him, which did translate into the character and the power on screen he has.”
Margot Robie plays Harley Quinn and Will Smith stars as Deadshot with Jai Courtney as Boomerang. Jay Hernandez plays El Diablo, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Adam Beach as Slipknot.
This killer cast is one worth waiting for, the official Warner Bros. release date is August 5th. Need more convincing that Leto is worthy of portraying The Joker? Check out his colourful photo shoot with esquire.
