Here’s the official Suicide Squad trailer

Yesterday, we were cheeky. 

We played fast and lose with the world of comic books, bringing you several leaked trailers from the weekend's Comic-Con. Some were blurry, some were badly filmed, but for those of you who just couldn't wait to glimpse the latest flash of cape, it was all you needed.

Today, Warner Bros. has finally released the official, HD version of its debut Suicide Squad trailer - for all of us who couldn't be in San Diego for the weekend. 

Agent Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) amasses a band of some of the most dangerous incarcerated criminals to carry out operations the US government can't be seen to be involved in. We're not going to pretend we know anything about the Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Deadshot (Will Smith), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman) or Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), but Margot Robbie looks superbly sinister as Harley Quinn, and Jared Leto's Joker is ticking all the right unbalanced boxes. 

Unsettling, sinister, Avengers this ain't.
