Comic-Con 2015: First SUICIDE SQUAD Trailer Released by Warner Bros. [81 Screenshots]

Thanks to a select few who decided to leak the exclusive Comic-Con Suicide Squad trailer to the Internet, Warner Bros. has let the pirates win and uploaded the official HD version of the footage online. After much hype around its premiere, there’s no surprise to why someone would want to share the trailer with everyone. The entire Suicide Squad can be seen in action, along with Jared Leto as the Joker and Ben Affleck as Batman.

Much to the chagrin of Warner Bros. with this leak, the studio should be happy that the Suicide Squad trailer is harboring so much love as the first looks at Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Leto’s Joker were met with polarizing responses. Seeing the two in action, as well as the rest of the squad, I have to say that I am definitely looking forward to what director David Ayer has in store.

A statement was made by Sue Kroll, Warner Bros. Pictures’ President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, on the decision to release the Comic-Con Suicide Squad trailer:

“Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”

It is a shame that fans who waited in line over 24 hours in the brutal San Diego sun to be the first to see the footage could not be the only ones privy to this exclusive content. Thanks to social media and the virality of online culture, the age of Comic-Con footage exclusives has definitely come to an end. The folks at Warner Bros. were smart to upload the Batman v Superman trailer immediately after the panel, but apparently an oversight of how well received the Suicide Squad trailer was made and they should have seen this coming.

Studios are going to have to step up their game like Lucasfilm to give Comic-Con fans a once in a lifetime experience like the private concert after the panel to avoid major mishaps like leaked footage. Otherwise there’s not point in even attending and wasting the money to show up if leaks like this continue to happen. There’s definitely a turd in the punchbowl and we can no longer hold ourselves to the honor system any longer.

First Look at Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn with ‘Suicide Squad’ in Costume

After many teases and controversy over the reveal of Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker in Suicide Squad, director David Ayer has now unveiled the villainous group in full costume. The first official image is sure to spark as many polarizing thoughts over Harley Quinn’s non jester-like appearance as there were for the Joker and his Juggalo tattoos. Fortunately for the costume department, this will take the focus for how muted everyone else looks.

Now that we have our Suicide Squad, or Task Force X if you want to refer to them by their official designation, it’s clear that DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. want to continue down the path of a more grounded world like Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Why change what worked, right? I’m fine with that, but the costumes look so bland and lifeless. There’s very little color compared to their comic book counterparts. At least give them a little more personality to them.

The ladies of the group stand out to me the most. Enchantress (Delevigne) looks like she came from a swamp, Katana (Fukuhara) has this mysterious ninja assassin thing going for her, and then we have punk rock Harley Quinn (Robbie) who looks like she’s trying to mirror the Joker’s look with the tattoos and the bling. The only thing that resembles the iconic Harley is the blonde pigtails, pail skin, and big, red-lipstick smile. There are definitely going to be some naysayers who disapprove, but I don’t think it’s worst get up the character has ever worn.

Pictured above (from left to right) is Adam Beach as Christopher Weiss aka Slipknot; Jai Courtney as George “Digger” Harkness aka Boomerang; Karen Fukuhara who is rumored to play Plastique, but clearly looks to be in costume as Tatsu Yamashiro aka Katana; Cara Delevingne as June Moone aka Enchantress; Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinn; Will Smith as Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot; Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Waylon Jones aka Killer Croc; and Jay Hernandez as Chato Santana aka El Diablo.

Behind the group photo on the backdrop reads, “Welcome to Belle Reve,” which is the prison facility that houses the Suicide Squad. The question I’d like to put out to the floor is, why is the Joker not present in this photo? Is he not an official member of the group? Will Task Force X be sent out to hunt down the Joker? Filming has just began, so we’ll hopefully get a teaser at Comic-Con as filming will wrap in August. One could assume at least that it will be the prime location to reveal footage and a plot synopsis.

For those worried about Deadshot not having his infamous mask, Will Smith’s Facebook page graciously answered that question with a new photo too:

Will Smith Deadshot in Mask Suicide Squad Official ImageAnd as if we had enough to worry about with whatever is going on with Leto’s “damaged” Joker, Ayer had to go and throw out the name Task Force X. Suicide Squad is a great, catchy nickname, but I think by throwing “Task Force X” into the mix it may confuse mainstream audiences who are not comic book readers or are not familiar with this ragtag group of villains.

But I digress.S What do you think of the costume choices for our anti-heroes?

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad also stars Jared Leto as The Joker and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. This movie is set to be released in theaters on August 5, 2016.

Last time we saw the god of thunder in his own standalone picture was back in 2011.

And Marvel hopes to see the character continue to grow in Thor: The Dark World. Far removed from our other favorite Avengers, The Dark World brings the best of science fiction and fantasy together to give Marvel fans one grand adventure.  Continue reading
