For a movie studio who keeps saying they’re doing their own comic book movies and not trying to copy Marvel, WB with their Suicide Squad movie seems to be pulling every page out of the James Gunn playbook in order to hype this film up.
After the lukewarm reaction to the first trailer the second trailer used the a classic rock song (Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody) and showed a more lighthearted affair and that tread seems to have carried over to the third trailer where it features “You don’t Own Me” by Lesley Gore and then finishes with “Ballroom Blitz”by Sweet. I’d like to take a moment to point out that Suicide Squad has already used two featured songs from Wayne’s World in two of their trailers.
Here is trailer number 3, this one seems even more lighthearted than the last, maybe by the forth one if this trend continues we’ll see flat out slapstick. Also, Jai Courtney continues to be the stand out in these trailers, which worries me because Jai Courtney is… well he’s not very good, but maybe playing a beer swilling Aussie is his calling. Anyways, enjoy the trailer and let us know what you think in the comments below.
