SUICIDE SQUAD: Here's That Comic-Con Footage Everyone Got Excited About
Even if you weren't paying attention to the goings on in San Diego this weekend you probably know someone who, over the past 36 hours, was making a big deal about the Suicide Squad footage shown at Comic-Con. And they would have been in two camps. 

The larger camp will have been excited that someone shot the footage with their shitty camera phone and shared it with the rest of World. The other, much smaller camp, would have been excited about the fact that someone shot the footage with their shitty camera phone and share it with the rest of the World. But not excited in a good way. 

And while that debate rages on online whether footage should be shown at CC, or exclusive to CC, or whatever to CC, Warner Bros has released a crystal clear version of that trailer for us to look at. 

Whether or not you admit that you want to see this movie after watching this you must admit it certainly creates a mood with the crescendo of the music and choral voice. Punctuated by the ghost of Johnny Rotten at the end there.

I know we are all getting superhero fatigue but I've been on board with this since day 1. Really like David Ayer's work and this footage looks great. Hate the idea of prejudging films before they've even been finished, and as someone who has always preferred DC's canon over Marvel's, I can't deny that I'm genuinely excited for this. Even with Jai Courtney in it.

It looks interesting, certainly a little off the mark from the traditional comic movie formula. I like Jared Leto as an actor and musician, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he will make his Joker memorable.

That looks like it can be a mediocre action film but that take on Harley Quinn makes me yawn at best. Change her from quirky and funny to community collage theater crazy and "sexy"? Boring.

It looks dark and gritty. But also playful. I mean, that goat-mask and panda really stands out for me.

It's looking good to me, 2016 is going to be a great year for movies.

"Even with Jai Courtney in it."

I hate that I have to agree with this. I actually LIKE Jai but, at this point, his casting is a red flag to me in anything that the ceiling is set at average because the role -- whatever it is -- couldn't be filled with someone "better".

Looks interesting, but it stands on a pretty wobbly conceit: The worst, most evil-est people in the world have been kept locked up in some top-secret hole for an indeterminent time and now they are going to become sorta' do-gooders because Alfre Woodard has m4d reverse psychology skrillz? LOL! Anyway, if these guys are so evil and worst-of-the-worse, why are we spending my tax moniez keeping them alive and healthy?

Yeah, yeah, best not to ask simple logical questions. And no, I haven't read the comics. Still, seems like this movie will have to be rated R (or a very hard PG-13) if they are going to sustain the atmosphere suggested by the trailer. Also, Leto looks like he'll do a good job with The Joker.

Looks like they are quite faithful to recent run of the comic, the New 52 Suicide Squad written by Adam Glass, Ales Kot and Matt Kindt.
Not just imagewise but the whole Harley as damaged sex-kitten issue. Hopefully Ayer can deliver, seems promising

I hope (and assume) they´re going with the "Toe the line or your explosive collars will detonate" thing from the comics; it definitely makes at least comic-sense.
