DC Entertainment tasked itself to brand a comic book storied force like none other into a cinematic exhibition that would interworkably span its unfolding debut superhero franchise. Over the march through production development followed by filming there were those observing fans giving the online coliseum a thumbs-down consternation (such as how the new Joker would look in the film) or hypable thumbs-up (making the case for Will Smith fully geared in Deadshot personification). Nothing has lit upon the sweat and sands with entertainment teasers with one seat upheaving roar for “Suicide Squad” like the released first look trailer.
While every casted super-villain is seen as much as in the previous on-set characters’ portrait not every one is chanced with a given first impressions vanguard the way Deadshot (Will Smith) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) shine forwarding their personas.
Trailer scene-setting though is given to Viola Davis whose commanded display exemplifies her Oscar-won capability right in tandem with taking our expectations up a notch. Waller merely from the clips sets the stage for us “I finally have them, the worst of the worst” then “Let’s just say I put them in a hole and I threw away the hole.”
Now to be clear Waller hasn’t been an inactive agent on the small screen or big screen for DC Entertainment. She has been a live action fixture played by hard-hitting performers out of their own stock of notability: Cynthia Addai-Robinson (“Spartacus: Vengeance”), Angela Bassett (“Akeelah and the Bee”), as well as Pam Grier (“The L Word”).
Each has exemplified the comic book’s characterized depth in one varied aspect or other. There has been the “wield them with expendability” Waller. Waller’s “I have an agency and I’m not afraid to push its full directorate solely on you right now” attitude has been viewed. Even chess mastery deployment towed by innate antipathy against enemies of the state has wowed audiences.
This “Suicide Squad” Waller has the teaser-trailer first look paving the way ascribing the Suicide Squad members, their reason for existence then both the same can be said for her in the role of unstoppable force of Beltway player.
One view of the trailer and Amanda Waller’s prefacing narration in the deliverance that awes a highly ranked general is where realization impacts full recognition for DC Entertainment’s sober Universe and where “Suicide Squad” is looking to fit. Then awe comes the viewers way in the bookending preface deliverance by the Joker (Jared Leto).
