The most pressing question: Is it Aug. 5 yet?
A new trailer for Suicide Squad hit the web this week and it is everything we wanted from a movie about the "Worst. Heroes. Ever." And it looks completely different from the moody, broody Batman v Superman. It actually looks...fun?! We're more excited than ever, but have a few questions -- eight, specifically.
1. Who is the villain? Is it the Enchantress?
We know who the bad guys are -- they're the Suicide Squad! Harley (Margot Robbie) tells us as much in the trailer! -- but who will they take on? Rumors claim it could be Cara Delevingne's witch-possessed sorceress, and she does not appear in any of the group shots in the trailer, which we think is curious. However, we do see her alternate personality, June Moon, with Task Force X leader Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman).
2. If she’s not the villain, what is she doing at the WHITE HOUSE?
Nothing good, we presume.
3. Who is going to die first?
It’s called the Suicide Squad for a reason. Someone on the roster is not going to make it to the end of the movie. Either that person will be killed on one of the high-risk, black ops missions -- or they'll be taken out by Task Force X. (In the comics, each member is implanted with a micro-bomb, as an added safety measure.)
Our money is on Slipknot (Adam Beach), who seems to go MIA mid-trailer.
4. Who is Scott Eastwood playing?
The actor's role has been shrouded in secrecy, but fanboy speculation has him playing Slade Wilson, the Army soldier who eventually becomes DC's deadliest assassin, Deathstroke. The trailer does confirm Jim Parrack plays Jonny Frost, who goes on to become Pseudo Joker.
5. Where is Harley Quinn's accent?
We love absolutely everything about Robbie's take on the psychiatrist-turned-psychopath. She's already our favorite movie character of the year, and we've only seen her in trailers. That said, we couldn't help but notice she ditched the Brooklyn accent of cartoon Harleys past. Whatever, as long as she calls the Joker "puddin'" at some point.
6. Speaking of the Joker, how much is he actually in the movie?
Jared Leto's Joker appeared in both of the trailers we've seen, but now, more than ever, we're not sure exactly how he's connected to the plot of the movie. Does he only appear in flashbacks? The shot of him pulling Harley out of a vat of chemicals is clearly part of her origin story.
7. And are we going to love Leto's Joker, after all?
We were...skeptical when the first photos of Leto in costume came out. But seeing what he's doing in action, it works. He's not Heath Ledger, of course, but he is basically an exact replica of the Joker from the comics. Which is to say, it’s going to be bonkers.
8. Oh, and what is Captain Boomerang drinking?
Soda? Beer? Either way, Jai Courtney is our SKWAD spirit animal.
