Warner Bros. has released the first full trailer for director James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
We finally have a trailer for The Suicide Squad. The much-anticipated DC Comics adaptation is set to arrive both in theaters and on HBO Max later this year. This time, it is James Gunn, known for his work on the Guardians of the Galaxy movies over in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, putting Task Force X through the ringer. And yes, as the trailer teases, we are getting a whole lot of R-rated action this time around.
Disney and Marvel Studios eventually circled back to James Gunn, who will direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 once his commitments in the DC universe are over with. Gunn is also working on spin-off series set within the same world as The Suicide Squad titled Peacemaker. It will center on the character John Cena is playing in the upcoming movie. The fact that a spin-off series is already being filmed signifies the studio’s confidence in what Gunn has cooked up.
The Suicide Squad centers on Task Force X, who have been handed a new assignment.
The team, this time around, includes Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and Harley Quinn.
They are armed heavily and dropped on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Amanda Waller’s government techies are in their ears, tracking their every movement. One wrong move and they’re dead.
James Gunn also wrote the screenplay. Charles Roven and Peter Safran are producing, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo, Nikolas Korda and Richard Suckle executive producing. The Suicide Squad arrives in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6 from Warner Bros. Be sure to check out the new trailer for yourself.
