Remember how amazing the first Suicide Squad trailer was? Of course you do. It made every fan eagerly anticipate the second teaser for David Ayer’s adaptation of DC’s notorious group of anti-heroes and recently, Heroic Hollywood, via Squareeyed, published leaked details of it. Apparently, the second trailer will be cut to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and has portrayed some genuinely terrifying moments.

One such moment centres on a pivotal juncture in the twisted relationship between Jared Leto’s Joker and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn which closely resembles a memorable sequence from the New 52 comics.

So, from the looks of it, we’re not going to actually see The Joker throwing his girlfriend into the chemical tank, but we will certainly witness the sequence from the second image.

This will serve as a very important scene in Suicide Squad because it will portray exactly how Dr. Quinzel became Harley Quinn for the DC Extended Universe.


Maybe the electro shock therapy we see happening in the trailer alongside the now immortal line ‘I’m not gonna kill ya, I’m just gonna hurt ya really really bad,’ happens before The Joker throws Harley into the tank.

However, there is a possibility that The Joker is actually electrocuting June Moore, the character who will soon evolve into Enchantress. Could Joker simply be trying to release the Enchantress through torture so he can escape Arkham? Hmmm, we’re not so sure. It is reassuring however, that director Ayer is staying true to the comics and could give us a thrilling, faithful adaptation.

Synopsis: It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
