These villains are Deadshot (Will Smith), an expert assassin; Joker (Jared Leto), a psychopathic wild card; Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), a crazed, former psychiatrist; Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), the team’s field leader and the government’s man on the inside; Boomerang (Jai Courtney), a boomerang-obsessed assassin; El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), an L.A. gang member who can summon flames, Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), a supervillain with a skin condition that causes reptilian features, and more. The film also features Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, the government official who “runs” the Squad; Cara Delevinge as Enchantress, an ancient evil force; and Ben Affleck as Batman. Watch the international trailer below, which plays up the wacky fun of the film, complete with witty quips and a gun-toting panda, and scored to Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz.”
