Sharing the trailer on Twitter, Gunn wrote, “Our first trailer. Warning: gore & adult language & supervillains & adventure & heart. Can’t wait to see it in a ttheatrewith all of you on August 6. #TheSuicideSquad.” It, indeed, is everything that the director stated. The Suicide Squad 2 looks intriguing, has a mix of hilarious dialogues, and a great plot. Here are the 5 things we liked about the trailer the most:

James Gunn as Director

Gunn, who is known for his films like Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, is delving into the world of DC for the first time, and we are excited to see what magic he paints with this film. Seeing the trailer, we are excited to know that it is nothing that we have seen Gunn doing before, and it makes the wait for the film even more difficult.

A Possible Box Office Hit

The trailer often helps you determine if the film will work on the screen or not, and The Suicide Squad 2 is everything that will make it a blockbuster film. The villains of the Suicide Squad have already impressed the audience before, and it almost never happens in films that you get to see the bad guys do good things in a story. It has all the elements you need for a hit film. From promising performances by all the actors to engaging dialogues, drama, and loads of action.

Harley Quinn’s New Look

The lunatic Harley Quinn from the suicide squad gained mass popularity. Margot Robbie was appreciated for pulling off the character so effortlessly in the first part of the film, and now she is taking it up a notch. We get to see her in a red-and-black leather look in the trailer, which is refreshing, and is adding newness to her crazy character. 

The Plot

While Gunn has made sure he does not give the story right away, the trailer gives you just the insight into what is about to come. The plot is engaging enough for you to not get bored while watching the trailer. The action is going to be epic because from what we could make out from the trailer, it has Gunn written all over it, and we all very well know how good he is with it. 

The New Squad Members

With The Suicide Squad 2, we will get to see new members joining the team. Saturday Night Live fame Pete Davidson is among the new cast members. He will be seen playing the role of Blackguard in the sequel. Idris Elba has also joined the team as Bloodsport. John Cena will be seen essaying the role of Peace-Maker in The Suicide Squad 2.
