And Amanda Waller said, “I want to build a team of some bad people who could do some good”. And then, there was the Suicide Squad.
The 1-minute clip highlights the “squad’s puppet master”, Amanda Blake Waller. Portrayed by Primetime Emmy Award Winner Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder, The Help), Waller is one tough cookie. As the brains behind the Suicide Squad, one might as well be as ruthless and as cold as this government agent. Watch the extended teaser from IMDB below and know why Agent Amanda Waller is “just a mean lady”.
The extended teaser also features tactical expert Rick Flag, played by Joel Kinnaman (The Killing, RoboCop). To get a quick orientation of the characters of Suicide Squad, click here for their character motion posters.
“Everyone has a weakness and a weakness can be leveraged”. That’s Military Tactics 101 for you, as told by the DC’s White Queen. Catch Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad as the movie hits theaters this August.
It feels good to be bad. Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains. Then, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal. Finally, 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 also stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
