I just went and watched bot GOTG trailers with the idea of coming back and saying "Look how shit these looked, but they ended up great!", but they actually looked good and made me want to watch them again.

So yes, this will probably be shit.

Don't wanna be that boring bastard, but it's a slow day. Theres already been a decent Suicide Squad film, and that's the animated Assault On Arkham

I just read that back in George Martin's voice from Big Train

So hang on, is DCs plan just to remake all their shit films with "The" tacked on the front in the hope everyone forgets the shit one.

Looking forward to "The Zack Snyder's Justice League".

All that shows is that the trailers to GOTG were good. It's not even DC or Marvel that makes these trailers, there are dedicated companies that do it. You can't really tell anything about a film from its trailer other than how specific shots look (and even then, they might still be tweaked in post before it screens).

Classic CaB response from most here though. Well done everyone.

It looks exactly the same as GotG. If you liked that, you'll like this; if you hated that, you'll hate this.

That said, I'm surprised by the overwhelmingly negative response here, considering that GotG was well received on this forum, if I recall correctly.

As I mentioned upthread, I dont like GotG 1 & 2 at all - they're emotionally manipulative  rubbish - but they are both visually striking by the standards of the MCU (and modern genre films in general), and led by a likeable central cast.

This SS trailer makes the film look hideous, and its cast, obnoxious. I certainly dont think it helps that it showed so many characters, and they all just seemed like juvenile idiots.

I would put money on the trailer being misdirection and the majority of the cast dying in the first ten minutes. I'm assuming that Idris Elba and John Cena's interplay will be the heart of the film.

As you say, the two GotG films have a lot of schmaltzy emotion (I'm with you on the first film, but the second one worked for me). I don't see that changing here. As Mister Six said, the name Ratcatcher 2 is a bit of a clue that there'll be a tearjerker back story there.

It will be GotG meets Deadpool, and received as well as those (or as badly, if you hated them).

I see what you mean about the visuals as compared to GotG, but that's at least partly intentional, surely - the costumes are clear piss takes of their comic book designs. GotG went for a corny Flash Gordon look but had the benefit of taking place on alien planets, so not looking as garish as this does.

I can't see this happening before this version of Suicide Squad comes out, but David Ayer is still pushing for a release for his version of the first film

THE SUICIDE SQUAD - Rebellion Trailer.

New posters.

I'm with frajer in remaining cautiously optimistic.

I know what I said earlier about not judging this based on its trailer, but based on the one word strapline of "BOOM." on one of those posters, this film can indeed fuck off.

I read that Stallone is voicing the shark man, is that true? And if so why no name on the poster?

Lends it a lot of gravitas. Much better trailer, should have just led with that one

That's how trailers work now, though, isn't it? We've had the comedy trailer, now the gravitas/mood trailer. Next probably the action trailer and then the plot trailer, and then one last combined comedy/action/plot trailer closer to the actual date.

With Arm-Fall-Off Boy being renamed TDK, I can't help but feel that the character was written to be played by Alan TuDyK.[1]

Played by Nathan Fillion as well, who deserves another shot at the big screen

James Gunn hasn't done me wrong so far so I will hold fire on the criticism until I have seen the film
