There's one little bit in the first trailer for The Suicide Squad that's just ... weird. And that's saying something, since there's very little in the trailer that's not bonkers.
There's a shark that we've already seen briefly in the trailer. Sitting quietly in the back of the van. Eating a person. ... Pointing out that he does, in fact, have a hand.
That voice, though. That voice is familiar. And it turns out ...
In case you're wondering who that shark is... @TheSlyStallone King Shark. #TheSuicideSquad https://t.co/ziuCDeU0Wl pic.twitter.com/uB7mnqh7abMarch 26, 2021
Yep. King Shark is voiced by Sylvester Stallone. And once you hear it, you can't unhear it.
It's worth watching the trailer a couple times and making good use of that pause button. At about 2:31 in, you'll see King Shark eating something. And then it looks like a lot of other somethings fall out of some kind of silo.
If that's not enough of a tell that this truly is a sequel with another motley crew of bad people going up against worst people, I don't know what is.
Check out the full trailer below.
The Suicide Squad will be released Aug. 6, 2021, in theaters and on HBO Max.
