    The team interrogates The Thinker in The Suicide Squad TV promo
    It appears that plenty of promotional materials for The Suicide
    Squad are ahead of us. Recently, director James Gunn revealed
    the first TV spot for the upcoming soft reboot of 2016's movie.
    The short video mainly focuses on the close encounter between
    Bloodsport, Rick Flag, Harley Quinn, and Peter Capaldi's
    The Thinker. Unlike in the recently-released trailer, the 
    highly-intelligent supervillain is expressing his concerns
    about the state of the mission. The TV promo also features a
    glimpse at Harley Quinn running out of a falling building and
    some more fresh footage (via SuperHeroHype).

    The official synopsis for The Suicide Squad reads:

    "Welcome to hell - a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with
    the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the
    worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do
    anything to get out - even join the super-secret,
    super-shady Task Force X. Today's do-or-die
    assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including
    Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang,
    Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin
    and everyone's favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then
    arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the
    remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

    Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant
    adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the
    Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only
    Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave...
    and Amanda Waller's government techies in their ears,
    tracking their every movement. And as always, one
    wrong move and they're dead (whether at the hands of
    their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If
    anyone's laying down bets, the smart money is against
    them - all of them."

    The Suicide Squad will debut in theaters and HBO Max on
    August 6.
