New Suicide Squad Trailer

And it looks absolutely fantastic.

My commentary on it, reposted from Daddy Warpig’s House of Geekery, another excellent blog:

After this trailer I went from “Huh, this is a clever concept, and I’ll have to remember to check this out” to “WOW THAT TRAILER WAS AMAZING”.

The difference between this and the Superman films is that this is clearly designed to be dark. That’s why Marvel’s “Daredevil” is dark and Captain America isn’t: Because Captain America is about that good ol’ American can do attitude getting things done and Daredevil is about a man from a crappy town who grew up with a crappy life trying to fix his town while battling both inner and outer demons (and getting the stuffing beat out of him in the process).

“Daredevil” can’t be lighthearted. “Captain America” can’t not be (or at least comparatively so).

Superman? He’s a similar sort of clean cut all-American like Captain America is, and turning his movie gritty just doesn’t work. Making Batman vs. Superman a serious film just heightens this further. It sounds like one of those old “Godzilla vs. Predator” movies: It’s impossible for me to take seriously. So why are they taking it seriously?

I have no interest in any of the other DC films, but unless critics trash it I’ll be seeing this in theaters.
