Margot Robbie, John Cena, Idris Elba, Sylvester Stallone, and others appear in the Suicide Squad, led by James Gunn, who also directed Guardians of the Galaxy.
The trailer for Suicide Squad has been released. It reintroduces several of the old cast and adds some new ones, as well as a sneak peek at the plot.
The film is a sequel to David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, which was released in 2016. Starro, a giant starfish who first appeared in The Brave and the Bold comic #28 from the 1960s, is also revealed as the villain in the first trailer for the upcoming film, simply titled The Suicide Squad. In case you missed it, Sylvester Stallone is playing King Shark in the film.
The trailer begins with the squad putting together a scheme to save Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), only to discover that she has already disappeared before the plan can be put into action. It reintroduces the Suicide Squad — a group of supervillains expected to work together to save the planet — which is completely unnecessary.
There are a few high-octane action moments, some amusing quips from some of the characters, and a few scenes with ample guts and glory to please DC fans. When Harley Quinn informs Peter Capaldi’s Thinker that if he coughs without covering his mouth, he will die, there seems to be a COVID connection in there as well.
Joel Kinnaman reprises his role as Rick Flag, Margot Robbie reprises her role as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis reprises her role as Amanda Waller, and Jai Courtney reprises his role as Captain Boomerang. It introduces new characters such as Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Savant (Michael Rooker of Guardians of the Galaxy), SolSoria (Alice Braga), Blackguard (Pete Davidson), Peacemaker (John Cena), Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian), and King Shark (Stallone), among others.
James Gunn, who also directed the Guardians of the Galaxy films, directed The Suicide Squad. Gunn also co-wrote the film with John Ostrander, who also wrote the comic book on which the film is based. The Suicide Squad was produced by DC Films, Atlas Entertainment, and The Safran Company, and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
On August 6, the film will be released in theaters and on HBO Max around the world. It will be available in four different languages in India: English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
