A new trailer for Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics’ “Suicide Squad” film aired during the MTV Movie Awards ceremony last night to a rave reaction from the studio audience. Said trailer, dubbed the “Blitz Trailer”, is set to go online tonight right after the ceremony’s edited broadcast version goes to air.
The trailer comes just as Heroic Hollywood reported this weekend that Ben Affleck’s Batman will be more involved in the film than many expect.
Glimpsed briefly in the trailers so far, we know the Caped Crusader would be appearing in the film but it was thought to only be in a cameo. The site now says: “The film tested recently, they had test screenings, and according to sources, check this out, there is a lot more Batman in the movie than they are letting on.”
In related news, acclaimed actor Gary Oldman was recently asked by Yahoo if there’s any advice he could give to actor J.K. Simmons who is taking over the role of Commissioner Gordon in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” films. It was a role Oldman played in all three of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films.
Oldman says: “The thing you’ve just got to get used to with Gordon is he’s a really sound detective, first of all. And he’s really incorruptible, which is a kind of wonderful quality to play and sort of, like, true blue. He’s like a Watson, oddly. He’s sort of like Watson to Sherlock, is Gordon to Batman.”
“Suicide Squad” opens in August.
