Suicide Squad Has A Trailer And Yes The New Joker Is In It

San Diego Comic-Con AKA The Big One happened this weekend, and since nobody wants to actually talk about comics there, there were a bunch of movie trailers instead.  One of which actually has to do with comics: Suicide Squad. 

This year's attendees were treated to the first trailer for the upcoming comic film, and in Comic-Con tradition were the first allowed to screen it as long as nobody filmed the thing.  And of course, somebody got away with filming it, so here it is:

(Watch it quick before it gets taken down)

UPDATE: The official trailer has been released in all it's glory

In the tradition of all trailers surreptitiously recorded and leaked during Comic-Con, this teaser for next year’s villain-turned-black-ops-agents movie is tough to watch and tough to hear. However we do finally get a look at Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, and our first taste at DC's foray into linking all of their movie franchises into one universe (Akin to Marvel and comics in general: with the mentions of Superman, and the Batman's appearance no less). But the most important part—our first glimpse of pretty-boy Jared Leto as the Clown Prince of Crime—still manages to be the highlight.

Joker Leto.

Aside from the much maligned design of the new Joker, from what little we see it looks like Leto is going for his own take, a good idea for anyone following the late Heath Ledger's iconic portrayal.

Of course, this isn’t the first time footage of the Suicide Squad film has made its way onto the internet, with sequences showing a tense moment between Harley Quinn and Joker andBatman chasing down Mr. J. preceding this one. At least David Ayer made a joke about it, huh?
