Director David Ayer electrified fans in Hall H with the first trailer for “Suicide Squad,” Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s super villain movie that opens next year.
And then he brought out the entire cast. Well, everyone minus Jared Leto.
“We are banging out something that is absolutely fantastic,” Will Smith promised, saying Ayer’s vision is “the real deal.”
The first trailer, which opens with Viola Davis (who plays Amanda Waller) talking about “the most dangerous people in the world,” included a first look at Smith’s Deadshot character as well as Leto’s The Joker: “I’m going to really, really hurt you,” he says at trailer’s end.
Ayer added: “We were shooting last night in Toronto but we had to come down b/c you guys run this s–t!” Ayer told the enthusiastic crowd.
“Suicide Squad” also stars Margot Robbie, Scott Eastwood, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Common, Jai Courtney, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
The film follows a band of supervillains hired for a dangerous mission by the government. If they succeed, their criminal records will be wiped clean. The pic is currently in production in Toronto.
The pic debuts in theaters August 5, 2016.
