In this premise, we can say that the Suicide Squad is within the same timeline as that of the Batman vs. Superman film. And I believe this would be the better one [B vs. S was just so depressing to watch]. Though I doubt if these hardened criminals – psychotics and metahumans – could take steel boy down unless they’re the personification of the kryptonite.
This scene’s followed by individual shots of the suicide misfits minus Katana, Captain Boomerang and Slipknot which made me think if these guys are the expendable ones. I would hate to see Katana die, though. Her character looks amazing in this trailer. But with the many shots exposing her, I doubt if that’s going to happen.
And let me just slip in a picture of Killer Croc [Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje] because he looks amazingly badass in this one.
Moving on, this blitz trailer squeezes in the answer to this question: how does the government control a motley gang of killers and psychos? By injecting them with something — most likely nanite explosives that would make them burst to bits if they go out of the line.
