The first trailer for Suicide Squad hit the internet like an atomic bomb after it was leaked and subsequently officially released by Warner Bros. back in July at San Diego Comic-Con. The clip introduced us to DC’s group of anti-heroes perfectly and was cut to a haunting rendition of The Bee Gees’s ‘I Started A Joke.’ Yes, it was pretty much trailer perfection.
Now however, as we lay in wait for the second trailer – which is rumoured to be slated in for the Superbowl half-time show – Heroic Hollywood via Squareeyed – claims to have a huge exclusive scoop from “trusted sources” that the upcoming trailer will be cut to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
Recently, Gonzalez was forced to apologise after another one of his scoops claiming that Star-Lord’s father in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was, in fact, Captain Marvel, was categorically denied by director James Gunn. So when he says “trusted sources,” we’re definitely taking that with a pinch of salt. However, he does have a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the trailer – which seems to elaborate to just make up.
Here are some of the most interesting pieces from HH’s breakdown:
No no no no no
Harley blows hair from her face, in that sexy way girls do. Joker is wearing a gold jacket and slaps some guy in the face, and says “I can’t wait to show you my toys.”
Mamma Mia, Mamma Mia
(There are a bunch of quick cuts here) Deadshot attacking, Joker laughing with what looks like a gun in his hand, Joker pulling on a light, Joker driving in his car (like comic con footage), Joker laying on the ground around HUNDREDS of knives and guns and other sorts of weapons. A big explosion, Deadshot loading clips and takes aim, Diablo yelling, the pace slows down as we see Captain Boomerang open a can of beer and take a drink, Katana’s eyes turn completely black, Harley dancing sexy in a club, helicopters shooting
(Then the screen goes black with the following words, in Suicide Squad font)
(Queen) So you think you can stop me and spit in my eye
(more quick cuts) Joker pulls a gun on a guy, which a henchman behind him. Croc grabs Katana. Normal looking Harley (before transformation) slams arms down on a table. Big fight in the street at night. Enchantress before her change. More quick cuts of all the characters. A topless Joker diving into a chemical tank. Joker pulling Harley out of chemical tank.
