Suicide Squad Trailer is Slow and Sad and Has the Joker

Screen shot 2015-07-13 at 1.47.55 PM

The moment you’re all looking for – hearing Jared Leto’s laugh as the Joker for the first time, comes at the very end of this trailer. The rest is an introduction to the concept of the Squad, and follows the very slow, very sad style of the DC Cinematic Universe we’ve come to expect. Which is unfortunate, because it looks like the movie itself is trying to be a fun romp, not a depressing character study. Lots of long takes of shots with little, tiny inserted attempts at humor abound here. What do you think? Is this the direction you wanted from the Squad?

For me, the coolest part was hearing Superman casually name dropped – I haven’t yet been prepared for Marvel style worldbuilding in a DC film.
