[Trailer] “Suicide Squad” (2016): 13 Gruesome Characters – Blitz Trailer

Warner Brothers and DC Comics are betting on their next effort, SUICIDE SQUAD, to take the theaters by storm much like Marvel’s Deadpool did this past Winter. Building upon the cinematic universe that Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice began, Suicide Squad introduces a ragtag team of supervillains and vigilantes teaming up to take on a threat too dangerous for their more colorful counterparts. Why? Because they are expendable. Think The Dirty Dozen mixed with Guardians of the Galaxy. This past weekend, DC revealed a new trailer known as the Blitz trailer due to the included song, Ballroom Blitz. Within this trailer, we are treated to 13 characters. Let’s take a look at the trailer and 13 screen caps below.
