Watch Suicide Squad teaser trailer released at comic-con (+Video)

One of the biggest surprises of Comic-Con has been the unveiling of the teaser trailer for Suicide Squad, the latest movie from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment. Director David Ayer led the unveiling of the trailer alongside several members of the cast in front of excited fans in Hall H.

Suicide Squad is still filming in Toronto, but Ayer told the audience, “we had to come down to report in to Hall H because you guys run this s**t.” He also assured the audience that the film would stay faithful to the source material, saying, “You guys know who you are, and know what you want, and you’re going to get it with this show.”

Ayer also tried to excite the fans present by telling them the movie would be about bad vs. evil, proclaiming that DC Comics has the best villains. The plot of the film involves a group of super-villains being hired by the government to carry out a dangerous mission in hopes of getting their criminal records erased.

After getting the crowd in Hall H riled up, Ayer shared the first teaser trailer of the film, which has already gotten rave reviews from fans. Ayer then introduced the main cast, with the exception of Jared Leto, who was absent. Among the cast members in attendance were Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach, Common, Jai Courtney, and Viola Davis.

Before leaving, Smith also chose to address the audience, saying, “We are banging out something that is absolutely fantastic. We’ll see ya’ll next year!”

Of course, as excited as fans may be for Suicide Squad, they still have a little more than a year of waiting left. The movie is set to hit theaters August 5, 2016.
