Did you guys get a chance to see the new Suicide Squad trailer?! I’ll be honest I haven’t been very impressed with DC’s movie push. I thought the Man of Steel was “meh” at best (that ending sucked, not to mention the fight scenes… I digress) and my excitement for Batman v. Superman dropped quite a bit with the newest trailer. One, I thought it revealed way too much, and Two, it seems like DC is trying to cram everything into one movie, unlike Marvel who took years of patience and universe building.
But here in the Suicide Squad I think DC might be on to something. I thought the first trailer brought the right level of darkness to introduce the concept to those not in the know (like people who don’t watch Arrow). With the second trailer I think the blend of darkness and humor is well balanced, and unlike Batman v Superman, it didn’t diminish my excitement levels any. Plus great use of Queen!
Check it out.
So what do you guys think? Excited? Where does Suicide Squad rank in upcoming comic book movies? I think for me it goes
- Captain America: Civil War
- Suicide Squad
- X-Men Apocalypse
- Batman v Superman
- Dr. Strange (no trailer keeps it at the bottom)
