It appears that plenty of promotional materials for The Suicide Squad are ahead of us. Recently, director James Gunn revealed the first TV spot for the upcoming soft reboot of 2016’s movie. The short video mainly focuses on the close encounter between Bloodsport, Rick Flag, Harley Quinn, and Peter Capaldi’s The Thinker. Unlike in the recently-released trailer, the highly-intelligent supervillain is expressing his concerns about the state of the mission. The TV promo also features a glimpse at Harley Quinn running out of a falling building and some more fresh footage.

The official synopsis for The Suicide Squad reads:
“Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.
Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.”
The Suicide Squad will debut in theaters and HBO Max on August 6.
