James Gunn Teases Red Band Trailer For Suicide Squad Later Today

The DC hype is set to continue later today as James Gunn has revealed a red band trailer for The Suicide Squad is incoming.

Superheroes are like buses. You wait a whole year for one and then three come along at once. Okay, the analogy isn’t perfect, but after more than a year of projects getting pushed back and delayed, Marvel and DC are finally getting to let the world see some of their latest projects. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is performing well on HBO Max, and the MCU’s TV shows have begun.

If there has ever been a time to capitalize on DC’s popularity, it’s now. James Gunn will do that later today when a red band trailer for The Suicide Squad drops. The director revealed the news late yesterday along with the official poster for the r-rated movie. It features the movie’s anti-heroes in a motif that is clearly inspired by The Dirty Dozen.

Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, and Jai Courtney will all reprise their roles from the first movie as Harley Quinn, Rick Flag, and Captain Boomerang. Although Will Smith will not return as Deadshot, The Suicide Squad will not be lacking stars. Idriss Elba, John Cena, and Sylvester Stallone have all joined the cast.

The first Suicide Squad movie, released in 2016, didn’t sit well with a lot of DC fans. In fact, following the release and success of Justice League’s Snyder Cut, fans are calling for Suicide Squad director David Ayer’s original cut of the movie to get its own release. Since The Suicide Squad is sort of a reboot of that movie anyway, chances are Ayer won’t be getting the Snyder treatment anytime soon.

On top of a trailer tease and a new poster, Gunn also revealed anti-hero fans don’t have long to wait for The Suicide Squad’s release, providing it isn’t subject to any delays of course. The movie will be released on August 6, 2021, in theaters and on HBO Max. All releases under the Warner Bros. banner will be receiving that treatment this year. Disney will also do the same with Black Widow which had its release date pushed back for the final time this week.
