SDCC: Leto Joker wins fans over as first Suicide Squad trailer shown


jared leto jokerGood luck finding a fancam grab of it online though…

After giving us the second trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Brothers treated those in attendance at San Diego Comic Con last night to the first sneak peek of DC Comics’ Suicide Squad, though finding a version of it online will prove extremely difficult (Terry Note – they’re in full on takedown mode for this one for all the fancam captures on Youtube/Vimeo etc.).

The trailer introduces us to all the members of the Squad with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Will Smith’s Deadshot being the key focus. As many suspected, it looks as though the group may be trying to get The Joker out of some sort of prison.

Talking of The Joker, the clown prince of crime is arguably the movie’s key talking point and the trailer finished with him, played by Jared Leto, torturing someone telling them “I’m not going to kill you – I’m just going to hurt you a lot.”

Leto’s Joker still has it’s doubters but last night’s trailer seems to have won a lot of people over with the new take on the character looking even more sadistic and menacing than those played by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger.
