‘I’m going to hurt you really bad’: Jared Leto portrays a menacing Joker as Margot Robbie wields a bat in ominous first trailer for Suicide Squad.

All of the squad are present and accounted for here, including Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and Will Smith’s Deadshot. The three-minute preview gave a little more insight into the mysterious project which stars Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Cara Delevingne among several others.The film, which follows a group of DC Comic supervillians, stars Jared Leto as the Joker, as well as Will Smith, Viola Davis, Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney. But the icing on the cake – and, let’s be honest, the one we’re all here to see – is Jared Leto’s Joker, complete with green hair and manic evil laugh.

The 43-year-old Oscar winner looked almost unrecognisable with pasty white make-up and neon green hair as he looked like he was administer electric shock torture on a victim. Coming from Jared Leto‘s take on classic DC Comics villain the Joker in “Suicide Squad,” you might as well curl up in a fetal position under your desk.

The preview, which made its way online after debuting at Comic-Con, shows the green-haired goon holding a dastardly-looking tool and saying, “I’m not going to kill you. The clip begins with government agents talking over dinner including Amanda Waller, played by Viola Davis, who makes an interesting suggestion: ‘I want to assemble a task force of the most dangerous people on the planet who I think could so some good.’ ‘And if anything goes wrong we blame them, we have built them deniability. Two days after Warner Bros. and director David Ayer unveiled a sizzle reel for the supervillain-teamup movie at San Diego Comic-Con, the studio finally permitted the footage to drop. I’m just gonna hurt you really, really bad.” The rest of the trailer sets up the plot for the highly anticipated flick, which is due out August 5th, 2016 and finds a band of baddies from the D.C.

Getting people to act against their own self interest is what I do for a living.’ It quickly transitions to inside of a high-security prison, giving the first look of 25-year-old Robbie in her role as fan-favourite baddie Harley Quinn. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. Thousands had already seen a blurry version of the footage, courtesy of cellphone videos taken during the Warner Bros. presentation Saturday, but now fans can see clean glimpses of what’s going on — and it doesn’t look like your usual big studio comic-book adaptation. The cast’s notable antiheroes include Batman staples Harley Quinn (played by actress Margot Robbie), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Deadshot (Will Smith) and Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), among others.

Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. “We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.” Ben Affleck, who’s set to portray Batman in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (see that movie’s trailer here), will also portray the Dark Knight in Suicide Squad. The Oscar winner has some big clown shoes to fill, between the late Heath Ledger’s Academy Award-winning turn in “The Dark Knight,” Jack Nicholson’s take in Tim Burton’s 1989 “Batman,” Cesar Romero’s classically campy turn in the 1960s “Batman” TV series, and Mark Hamill’s definitive voice work in several animated and videogame versions.

The clip then shows the villains coming together as Harley Quinn sings the Bee Gees’ “I Started a Joke,” making for a fitting lead-up to Leto’s character. Let’s go save the world!’ Seen for a short period of time was Batman, portrayed by Ben Affleck, who is shown momentarily while clutching onto the top of Joker’s shiny pink Ferrari.

Warner Bro.’s marketing chief Sue Kroll addressed the leak in a statement: ‘It’s unfortunate and ultimately damaging that one individual broke a long-standing trust we have enjoyed with our fans at the convention by posting early material, which, at this point, was not intended for a wider audience.’ The blockbuster movie derived from DC Comics is centred around a secret government agency who recruits imprisoned supervillains to perform missions swapped for clemency. J,” he wrote, referencing the 75th anniversary of the Joker’s first appearance in a comic book. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.
