Watch the First ‘Suicide Squad’ Trailer

San Diego’s Comic-Con has now called it a weekend, with the four-day “nerd” convention ending last night. Among all the cosplay and famous actors roaming the hallways, some of the most anticipated things were the trailers for the lengthy list of upcoming superhero films and television series.

One of the most anticipated trailers ended up being David Ayers’ Suicide Squad. Most of the cast was on hand during their panel with the exception of the Joker himself, Jared Leto, who is probably somewhere across the world performing with 30 Seconds to Mars.

During the panel, the first trailer for the supervillan-centric film was unveiled and of course, not everyone listened to the warnings of not filming what was shown at the convention panels, and that’s how we got a bootlegged version of the trailer.

Instead of letting the bootlegged version of the trailer run free on the internet, Warner Bros. decided to release the complete trailer.

Check out the trailer below.

Suicide Squad will hit theaters on Aug. 5, 2015.

Jared Leto to Become the ‘Suicide Squad’ Joker?

It seems like a lot of people are hoping that one day soon, 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto will portray a superhero or a villain in a big budget film, or at least that’s what it’s beginning to sound like.

Last year, there was talk that he would be taking on the much sought after role of Dr. Strange, but that was squashed recently.

Now, talks have begun that the singer and :”part-time” actor will be taking on the role of the Joker in DC Comic’s upcoming Suicide Squad film due to be released in 2016. The film, which has been described as “a dirty dozen with supervillains” will be directed by David Ayer and is set to begin filming in Toronto in February.

But while Leto seems likely, with The Hollywood Reporter writing that “Jai Courtney, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie [and Jared Leto] are in the final stages of talks for the role.”

But Leto recently told the publication that he’s been “sworn to keep my mouth shut,” which probably jump-started the rumors.

When MTV asked Leto the same question during and interview, he told them, “You know there’s a film called Fight Club, my friends, and you know what the first rule is, don’t you?”

As for the premise of the Suicide Squad movie, it’s something along the lines of “convicted supervillains are given a chance to redeem themselves through dangerous missions.”

Though it may seem a little weird on DC’s side to pick a group of supervillains going on dangerous missions to redeem themselves as the premise of one of their many upcoming films, it’s actually a very smart plan.

During episode 39 of The CW’s Arrow, the Suicide Squad became the central story with everything revolving around them and Oliver Queen’s bodyguard/second in command/ friend, John Diggle. Though we had previously been introduced to Deadshot, Bronze Tiger and Amanda Waller in other episodes (individually) we saw them all have to team up and then again during the season two finale.

Most recently, in the television series, we find Queen handing over his insane, number one fangirl, Cupid, over to the Suicide Squad as well.

DC Comics has officially taken the war against longtime competitor Marvel Comics to the big screen.

Marvel has seen success in recent years thanks to the big screen adaptations of some of their beloved characters like Iron Man, Thor, and of course The Avengers as a whole. But today, Warner Bros. made an announcement that might result in Marvel and their parent company, Walt Disney, watching their back.

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tuijihara announced plans for their DC Entertainment properties this morning which included ten DC movies to be released between 2016 and 2020. Three Harry Potter spin-offs and three Lego movies were also announced.

The on slaughter of DC movies will begin with the much-anticipated and talked about (#Batfleck?) Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice set for a March 2016 release date. Originally, the film was supposed to be released in May 2016, but Warner Bros. decided to move up the date to avoid competition from Marvel’s Captain America 3 reportedly due out around at that time.

In August, Warner Bros. had announced nine untitled releases for those years and now we have the official names for each film.

Aside from the DC Comics, Warner Bros also announced three Harry Potter spin-offs which are set to be released in 2016, 2018, and 2020, respectively. The films will follow the book series/ film franchise’s mythology based on author J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them novella.

The first of three films will act as Rowling’s debut as a screenwriter and will be directed by Harry Potter director, David Yates.

The Lego Movie which saw major success earlier this year, will also be coming back with three movies over the course of four years. Ninjago in 2016, followed by The Lego Batman Movie in 2017, and The Lego Movie 2 in 2018.
