Director David Ayer’s supervillain spectacular Suicide Squad took over Hall H today at Comic-Con, usurping the stage normally reserved for heroes. Audiences didn’t seem to mind; in fact, they warmly welcomed Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Will Smith’s Deadshot and most of the film’s cast. Unfortunately they couldn’t hang around long – Batman v Superman almost chased them off the stage – but they did share the first look at a trailer with us after a few comments from Ayer himself.
Ayer took the stage to tell the audience that, even though they were just shooting in Toronto last night, they had to come to Hall H because this audience “runs this shit.” He said, “Good vs Evil is played out. It’s time for Bad vs Evil.” He made a claim for DC Comics having the best villains ever, but wanted to avoid an “East Coast vs West Coast feud with Marvel.
At this point, Katana (Karen Fukahara), Slipknot (Adam Beach), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Col. Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), Harley Quinn (Robbie), and Deadshot (Smith) took the stage with Ayer. Smith shares a quick word of praise for Ayer before the cast has to exit.
