They might be the self-proclaimed worst heroes ever, but the first official trailer for David Ayer's Suicide Squad demonstrates that they appear to make some compelling protagonists nonetheless.
The trailer debuted during the CW's DC Films Present The Dawn of the Justice League special, which also featured advance looks at next year's Justice League Part 1 and Wonder Woman. It is technically the second chance fans have had to see what lies ahead in the big screen adaptation of DC Entertainment's supervillain black ops team concept, following last summer's surprise release of footage at San Diego Comic-Con.
Suicide Squad centers around a group of villains and ne'er-do-wells -- headed up by Will Smith's Deadshot and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn -- forced to work for the government under the supervision of Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman). With such morally dubious characters as the "good" guys, it falls to one of DC's most infamous villains — the Joker, as played by Jared Leto — to take up the position of bad guy in the movie.
