First 'Roll Call' Teaser for James Gunn's New 'The Suicide Squad' Movie
"You know the deal…" Warner Bros has revealed a teaser trailer and behind-the-scenes first look at James Gunn's new The Suicide Squad movie, a standalone sequel to the original Suicide Squad from 2017. This ensemble anti-hero DC action comedy boasts one hell of a stellar cast, bringing back Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. With a whole bunch of other talent: Idris Elba, Joel Kinnaman, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Michael Rooker, Flula Borg, Daniela Melchior, Steve Agee, David Dastmalchian, Mayling Ng, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Sean Gunn, Storm Reid, Nathan Fillion, Joaquín Cosío, Juan Diego Botto, and Taika Waititi as King Shark (hell yes!). Each and every one of them gets introduced in this "roll call" teaser, but there's no actual footage yet. Only a few glimpses in the second video (below). As a first look and character reveal, this is awesome! Definitely got my attention with Weasel and Polka Dot Man and Mongal and Bloodsport and all the others.
