Suicide Squad

The new Suicide Squad trailer is here, showing the villains in more action.

The new look at the upcoming comicbook film dropped during DC Films Presents: Dawn Of The Justice League on the CW. It notably shows a better look at Will Smith's Deadshot, who was only just teased in the first trailer, and even gives another sneak peek at Jared Leto's Joker.

Also predominantly featured again is Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, who, after smashing a window display to steal a handbag, proclaims, "We're bad guys. It's what we do."

The trailer, which includes Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody as its soundtrack, concludes with the tagline “Worst. Heroes. Ever”, which, given the new footage, seems pretty fitting.

The trailer comes one day after Warner Bros debuted new posters of the Suicide Squad, whetting fans' appetites. The team got both a live action poster and cartoon drawing of each character.

The trailer is the latest look at the film since the first trailer dropped in July, following its Comic-Con debut. The movie follows a group of DC super-villains hired for a government mission, with an opportunity to wipe their criminal records clean.

The catch? The mission will likely kill them.

The cast also includes Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag and Jay Hernandez as Diablo. David Ayer is directing.

Suicide Squad will hit theatre on Aug 5, 2016. – Reuters
