‘The Suicide Squad’ Trailer and New Posters Have Dropped
James Gunn has unveiled the trailer for The Suicide Squad, a follow-up to the 2016 film. In addition to the exciting trailer, a multitude of promotional posters has appeared, exciting fans what is to come. In a series of tweets, James Gunn has revealed the posters of some familiar faces from the 2016 film.
Some returning favorites include Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang.
New actors who had not been featured in the previous installment would include Sylvester Stallone as King Shark, Peter Capaldi as The Thinker, David Dastmalchian as Polka Dot Man, and John Cena as The Peacemaker.
Fans are anxiously awaiting the latest installment of The Suicide Squad. James Gunn shared in a tweet teasing the trailer with the caption, “Our first trailer. Warning: gore & adult language & supervillains & adventure & heart. Can’t wait to see it in a theater with all of you on August 6.”
Not only do fans get a trailer and exciting posters, but also a release date for the film. The three-minute-long trailer promises to take fans on a journey with the characters we all have come to know and love, while also being introduced to newer faces.
In a series of new posters, fans have fallen in love with the aesthetic James Gunn has created. Harley Quinn, one of the most beloved characters to date, shows Robbie wearing half-black, half-red, donning dark makeup, and bright red eyeshadow.

The background is all red and features Robbie with a flowery background. Another standout is Viola Davis, giving a serious side-eye amidst a red background surrounded by bombs.
Each poster has the saying, “Don’t get too attached,” a saying that becomes increasingly difficult for fans to follow as they find themselves back in the world of The Suicide Squad.
Fans have taken to social media to share their excitement of the latest installment.
