New Suicide Squad Trailer Rumored to be Cut to Ballroom Blitz, Batman Could Play a Large Role in Film
While Batman v Superman may not have done too great with their marketing strategy, it looks like Suicide Squad may very well fare differently. The Comic-Con first look and the most recent trailer, cut to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, have been huge hits, and they've left fans dying to see more while at the same time keeping the plot of the movie still under wraps.  

Some may remember that a few weeks before the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer dropped, Umberto Gonzalez reported a scoop that accurately predicted just about everything in the trailer, from the song to the content itself. Now, he's been given another scoop about the next trailer, and the rumor is that it'll be cut to another classic and weird rock song, Ballroom Blitz. He brings it up around the 16 minute mark of the latest episode of his Heroic Insider video series:



Gonzalez is often right more than he is wrong, and that's been especially evident after Batman v Superman was released in theaters. Many of the things he predicted (some of which fans called him crazy for) indeed took place in the film. Likewise, the fact that he was spot on with his scoop about the last Suicide Squad trailer definitely makes this seem likely, and it would make sense that the creative teams behind these trailers would try to repeat what made the last trailer so successful by cutting it to another fun song like Ballroom Blitz.

For those who might be unfamiliar with the Sweet tune (but how could you be?), here's a video.  



El Mayimbe, as Gonzalez is called, also talked about another rumor that's saying there's a lot more Batman in Suicide Squad than what the current trailers have let on at around the 15 minute mark of the video. Of course, fans will probably be excited about this if it turns out to be true, and as long as he doesn't end up stealing too much of the show, it's probably good news, seeing as how everyone loved Affleck's take on the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman.  

If Batman plays a larger role in Suicide Squad than originally thought (and it makes sense that he would - the villains featured are essentially all Batman villains save for El Diablo, Captain Boomerang, and Slipknot; Katana was a teammate of his in past comics), then it does lend a bit more weight to the Agent Grayson fan theory that's been floating around, which essentially says that Scott Eastwood's mysterious role in the film is actually Dick Grayson, sent to spy on Task Force X for Batman, just like he did in the comics with the secret organization called Spyral.  

More Suicide Squad footage is set to drop tomorrow during the MTV movie awards, but it's doubtful that's when the new trailer will drop. Most likely it'll come before one of the upcoming superhero films arriving in the next couple months, like Marvel's Civil War or Fox's X-Men Apocalypse.  

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th, 2016.
