Batman v. Superman pretty well sucked, and in doing so it flushed away a lot of the enthusiasm that I had for Suicide Squad. At this point, DC’s attempts to do their own spin on the Marvel Cinematic Universe are so transparent that it’s easy to see that they want this to be their own version of Guardians of the Galaxy, and if Batman v. Superman was supposed to be DC’s Avengers, then I can’t say as I think this will be very good. At least it seems to have a sense of humour about itself, but between the trailer trash Joker and the terrible DC movie we just sat through, red flags are going up quickly. It’s too bad, too. This was an okay trailer.
Suicide Squad comes out August 5, 2016.
