The latest "Suicide Squad" teaser focuses on the titular team's magical powerhouse, the Enchantress (Cara Delevingne). The clip -- an uninterrupted scene from the film -- sees Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) introduce the first member of Task Force X to a group of unsuspecting government officials.
"She's walked this earth for a very long time," Waller tells her shocked and somewhat frightened audience," and will likely be here when we're long gone." Not the most reassuring words, to be sure, but effective in getting across just how powerful the lesser known villain is to those unfamiliar with her comic book origins.
It feels good to be bad...Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?
"Suicide Squad," based on the DC Comics team and starring Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo and Adam Beach as Slipknot, is scheduled for release on Aug. 5, 2016.
