Out of all of them the major buzz has been around Jared Leto whose look as Joker has impressed many and increased curiosity over the movie
Suicide Squad held a panel at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con, with stars Smith, Robbie, Courtney, Davis and Kinnaman amongst those who appeared. During which, they premiered a trailer intended to be exclusive to the event. The trailer was leaked online, prompting Warner Bros. to release it officially online, albeit begrudgingly, stating: “Warner Bros. 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. We have been unable to achieve that goal. 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.”
So here you go with the first look of the Suicide Squad
