The final ‘Suicide Squad’ trailer is all about the puppet masters

Suicide Squad Final Trailer

Suicide Squad hits theaters in just two weeks, on August 5th. We’ve seen plenty of trailers that introduced some of the bad guys that are going to do some good for humanity in this strange anti-superhero movie, and the final trailer for the film shows us who the “puppet masters” are.

DON’T MISS: Is this proof that the iPhone 7’s biggest problem is real?

There would not be a suicide squad to begin with without the puppet masters who work for the US government on this unusual mission. And we need to know more details about those puppet masters, given that previous trailers focused solely on the incredibly deranged anti-heroes the government will hire to work for the greater good.

Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) is a “cutthroat government agent” who’s the squad’s top puppet master. She calls the shots while Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) executes the mission, and makes sure everyone is kept in check. He’s a “natural born leader” and a “tactical expert.” He’s also sort of afraid of Waller.

Oh, and Queen is back to supply the music for this new trailer.

Suicide Squad has an amazing cast, and we can only hope it’ll be the great DC Comics movie we’ve been waiting for all year long. Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th.
