Suicide Squad Trailer: 6 Things We Just Learned
It’s been months since we got our first glimpse at Suicide Squad from San Diego Comic-Con, but tonight that was remedied with a new trailer. As Queen’s "Bohemian Rhapsody" played, we were treated to closer looks at the prominent players, from Harley Quinn and the voices in her head to Captain Boomerang being his usual idiotic self (don’t crack a can in the middle of a mission, dude). Compared to the somber tone of the last preview, this upbeat and frenzied trailer painted the August blockbuster in a brand new light.
While much of what Suicide Squad has in store is still being kept on the down low, we were treated to a lot of the movie’s action in tonight’s trailer. More importantly, there were a few important snippets concerning the plot and main characters. Some were minor things that only hardcore comic fans will appreciate, while others clued us in on what the band of criminal operatives will encounter. Give the trailer another watch, and then take a look at the key things we learned!
Deadshot Has His Wrist GunsLet’s start this off with something simple: firearms. Floyd Lawton, a.k.a. Deadshot, is one of the world’s most talented assassins, and to that end, he loves his guns, from pistols to rifles to the heavy duty stuff. We already knew Deadshot would be wearing his white mask in Suicide Squad (covering star Will Smith’s face), but this trailer confirmed he’ll also be using his trademark wrist guns. When you don’t have a gun in your holster handy, just start shooting bullets out of the ones on your arm. It’s not like this reveal will have any big importance to the plot, but it’s the little things like this that matter to the comic book fans who have been hoping for an adaptation of the villainous assassin they know and love from the comics. It’s a special device used by the character, and it’s nice to see that it’s made the transition into live-action.
