Welcome to Matinee Monday, Dear Reader! In this week's edition of criminality, murderous intent, and psychotic supervillans splashed all over the silver screen, we look at yesterday's launch of an especially Harley Quinn-centric preview for DC's next superhero flick, Suicide Squad.
The latest trailer touches on the questions DC tried to ask about Superman in Dawn of Justice – if Superman went rogue, what could the world do about it? Well, who better to take down a superhero than a team of supervillains? There's Harley with a baseball bat, ready to Negan viewers into forgetting all about Batman v Superman's existence. There's Jared Leto's questionable Joker, to whom we will extend much benefit of the doubt. And then there's Killer Croc, Deadshot, El Diablo, and many more.
Most promisingly, this trailer just looks like pure, unadulterated fun – a concept that the DC universe has gotten away from in recent movies.
Watch Harley and the gang bring the pain below.
