The hype continues to build for the upcoming sequel/reboot of Suicide Squad from James Gunn, simply titled The Suicide Squad, as the acclaimed director has finally confirmed when the trailer will drop.
And it’s sooner than you may think.

As you can see from the above tweet, fans will finally be getting the long awaited trailer for The Suicide Squad tomorrow, March 26th, and it looks like it’ll be an R-rated “Red band” trailer, which I’m personally super excited about.
We also got a brand-new, epic-looking poster, which you can see below. It’s definitely got a 60’s/70’s vibe to it, almost like a mix of the original Star Wars poster. Apocalypse Now, and The Magnificent Seven. I love it so much!!
In The Suicide Squad, welcome to hell — a.k.a. Bell Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out — even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone’s favorite pyscho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.
The Suicide Squad will see the return of Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman as Colonel Rick Flag, and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang from 2016’s Suicide Squad. Joining them in the film are David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, Steve Agee as King Shark, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2, Idris Elba as Bloodsport, John Cena as Peacemaker, Nathan Fillion as T.D.K., Pete Davidson as Blackguard, Flula Borg as Javelin, Mayling Ng as Mongal, Peter Capaldi as The Thinker, Michael Rooker as Savant, Alice Braga as Sol Soria, and Sean Gunn as Weasel.
In addition to the film, there’s also a spin-off TV series focusing on John Cena’s Peacemaker character, being done by James Gunn, that will debut on HBO Max in January 2022.
