A first look at the upcoming Suicide Squad adaptation made its debut at Comic-Con on Saturday, and now a decidedly higher quality version (see: not filmed from someone’s camera) makes its debut on YouTube for the masses.
Oh, and Jared Leto as The Joker will scare the crap out of you.
The trailer shows the back room minds that create the Suicide Squad from a team of villains, thinking they can control them. It gives us a prolonged look at Margot Robbie’s unhinged Harley Quinn, some solid gravelly voiceover from Will Smith as Deadshot and a new look at Jared Leto’s ultraviolet take on The Joker.
“I’m not going to kill you. I’m just going to hurt you, really, really bad,” Leto growls.
The majority of the trailer is set against a haunting female vocal of the Bee Gees classic “I Started a Joke.”
Suicide Squad is in theaters August 2016.
