It’s safe to say that Kevin Smith is a fan of the upcoming Suicide Squad trailer, which was scooped on this site about a week ago. Smith will be hosting the CW television special on January 19th (during which the trailer will debut to the public), and he spoke a bit about it on his podcast, Fatman on Batman. He complimented not only the trailer, but also the vision of Suicide Squad director David Ayer.
“I saw the Suicide Squad trailer and it was f—ing impressive. Like, hats off to the f—ing marketing people and the trailer I saw, the second trailer. I’m not gonna spoil anything about it. Tell you this much, it’s got a lot of footage, song choice is perfect. That’s what they’re building. A moody campaign and like it’s not ‘This is [frick]ing villains fighting villains and shit.’ They’re building something that people don’t really read comics are interested in. I find it very fascinating what they’re doing. So I saw this second trailer, it is f—ing wonderful. It’s got a tone but I would say the second trailer has got a lot of humor and it’s not humor of the simple variety. They’ll play out a joke with dialogue, not just a quip. Some of the shots are goddamn gorgeous. I like this guy, (David Ayer) he’s a great director. Based on those two trailers, give him whatever he wants, let him make more DC movies. He’s got an eye man. Can’t spoil it, but it’s coming soon and that’s the good news.”
Based on his enthusiastic approval of the song choice, it’s safe to say that this is almost definitely the “Bohemian Rhapsody” trailer we told you about the other week. And based on Smith’s approval of the shot choices, knowing the trailer’s contents won’t do too much to ruin it for you. Keep an eye out for it when the CW runs DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League next month.
