Over 7 Minutes of Footage and a 9 Minute B-roll Have Been Released For Suicide Squad
Yesterday was a huge day for DC at San Diego Comic-Con. The very first Wonder Woman trailer, the first teaser for Justice League, and the final trailer for Suicide Squad were all shown in Hall H and then subsequently released online. As if that wasn't enough to whet a comic fan's appetite for the next three upcoming DCEU films, Warner Bros. has went ahead and released over 7 minutes of footage, most of which connects to the scenes that have been showcased thus far in the film's trailers.


















Thankfully, as these clips are pretty much all connected to shots that've been included in previous trailers, they don't give too much away about the film. Sure, there are some pieces about the plot that are definitely beginning to fit together at this point, but the marketing team still hasn't given as much away as the team for BatmanSuperman did, which is certainly a good thing.

It was incredibly exciting to see the clip of Harley and Joker when Batman hops on the roof of their car. The interplay between the two characters is extremely reminiscent of their relationship from Batman: The Animated Series, which ought to make a whole lot of fans happy. Likewise, seeing Katana arrive and asking "should I kill them?" in regards to Harley and the squad was a lot of fun as well.

In addition to these clips, over 9 minutes of B-Roll footage was released as well. Most of the audio is cut, so it's not necessary to worry about too many spoilers emerging from the clip. However, it is certainly worth note that this B-Roll shows Harley's classic jester outfit, which she takes a moment to reminisce about before throwing it over her shoulder and picking her new costume.



Regardless of the fact that most of these scenes were already included in the previous trailers, this was still a lot of footage to drop less than two weeks before the movie. Hopefully the marketing team doesn't overdo it from here on out, because who doesn't like to go to the movies and actually be surprised by the plot? If they don't release any new footage after this, however, then of course that clearly means these videos will be the last taste of the film before it's premiere. That's more than fine by me.

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th, 2016.
