    James Gunn unveils explosive theatrical trailer The Suicide Squad!
    For fans who went and saw Warner Bros.' latest installment of the
    MonsterVerse franchise, Godzilla vs. Kong, they were treated to a
    special new trailer for the highly-anticipated DC Extended
    Universe sequel The Suicide Squad, but in an anti-April Fools Day
    move, writer/director James Gunn took to Twitter to share the
    trailer for fans not looking to head to theaters! The new trailer,
    which takes a more serious and green-band approach to the film,
    offers a bevy of explosive new footage from the film, including a
    first look at the powers of Nathan Fillion's Floyd Belkin, aka
    TDK, and Daniela Melchior's Ratcatcher 2, as well as more of
    helmet-less (and shirtless) Peacemaker and a powerful new weapon
    in the hands of Bloodsport. The trailer can be viewed below!

    Trailer: (2mins 44secs)

    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 ensemble roster for Gunn's standalone sequel includes Margot
    Robbie (Birds of Prey), Idris Elba (Avengers: Infinity War), John
    Cena (Peacemaker), Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad), Jai Courtney
    (Honest Thief), Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), David Dastmalchian
    (Dune), Daniela Melchior (Parque Mayer), Michael Rooker (Guardians
    of the Galaxy), Alice Braga (Elysium), Pete Davidson (The King of
    Staten Island), Joaquín Cosio (Spider-Man: Into the SpiderVerse),
    Juan Diego Botto (The Europeans), Storm Reid (Euphoria), Nathan
    Fillion (The Rookie), Steve Agee (Brightburn), Sean Gunn
    (Guardians of the Galaxy), Mayling Ng (Wonder Woman), Flula Borg
    (Ralph Breaks the Internet), Jennifer Holland (Peacemaker) and
    Tinashe Kajese (Valor) Sylvester Stallone (Rambo) and Viola Davis
    (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom).

    Gunn directs from his own screenplay, based on characters from DC
    with Charles Roven and Peter Safran producing while Zack Snyder,
    Deborah Snyder, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo, Nikolas Korda and
    Richard Suckle executive produce.

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