This past weekend, at San Diego Comic-Con, WB/DC treated fans with the first official trailer for the upcoming comic book film, Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer. And not long after, a very low quality, leaked video of the trailer hit the web. Following this leak, Sue Kroll, the President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution for Warner Bros. issued this statement:
We have no plans currently to release the ‘Suicide Squad’ footage that leaked from Hall H on Saturday. It’s unfortunate and ultimately damaging that one individual broke a long-standing trust we have enjoyed with our fans at the convention by posting early material, which, at this point, was not intended for a wider audience. We are still in production on ‘Suicide Squad’, and will have a big campaign launch in the future. Our presentation yesterday was designed to be experienced in that room, on those big screens!
However, earlier today, the world was given a special surprise — the official HD trailer for Suicide Squad! Check it out below, and enjoy!
Suicide Squad will star Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Hernandez as El Diablo, and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress. Viola Davis will play Amanda Waller.
The film will be released in movie theaters on August 5, 2016.
