The First Trailer and Screenshots for Suicide Squad aka Your New Favorite Movie
In San Diego Comic Con's Hall H on Saturday, David Ayer stepped up to the stage to throw a few shades at Marvel before introducing the world premiere of the first footage from his upcoming Suicide Squad movie. What unfolded on the room's big screens had the 6,500-strong audience absolutely captivated as they picked over the footage, which was jam-packed with hauntingly beautiful shots of some of DC Comics' darker characters. Now, that footage is being made available to rest of the world, and Jared Leto's Joker can finally be unleashed upon the masses.



"Oh, I'm not going to kill you. I'm just going to hurt you. Real bad!" The Joker's words may just be the quote that encapsulates everything that David Ayer is trying to do with this movie. It's dark, it's twisted and it feels genuinely different to anything we've seen before. 

While it will be Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and Leto's Joker that will steal all the headlines, one of the most exciting aspects of the trailer is actually Viola Davis's Amanda Waller. Last month, Davis had teased that Suicide Squad's Amanda Waller may be one of the scariest characters in the whole movie, saying "She is a bad ass. Superman would quake in his- tights. Absolutely.", and we kind of have to agree.

See below for screenshots from the trailer. Study them, love them, and study them again because we're sure there are easter eggs hiding in there somewhere.
