Just a few more weeks and Suicide Squad, the third film in the DC Universe will be released! The marketing for the film so far has been very different from what we saw from Batman v Superman, and has been more in line with say Deadpool.
Moving away from the dark and gritty tone the Universe adopted post the Nolan era, this DC film has been rather marketed in a totally opposite way. The posters have been colourful,,the trailers were overall fun, and the characters seen till now had some quips. Just like Deadpool, a virtually unknown character since last year to the general audience, the film has now become the talk of the town. And one can say that the marketing has yielded as the film is now has an early tracking of as high as $125 million.
Warner Bros. have released new character videos for Suicide Squad. We see each character walking forward as a dialogue plays with a colourful backdrop as they strike a pose. We also see some new footage of each member in action. Each clip is tailored to suit their respective character. My favourite one would be Captain Boomerang’s clip which gives him a pink pony fetish (Digger is a brony now?).
Check out all of these clips below:
Directed by David Ayer, the film stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as Joker, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 5, 2016.
