This Joker henchman is dressed like a panda, which instantly makes him the greatest henchmen in any comic book movie ever. You really can’t top that, especially since the Joker is the exact kind of nut job to order one of his men to wear this thing.

I can’t tell you who Scott Eastwood is playing in this movie, but here he is, wearing military garb and exchanging fist bumps with a fellow soldier. Early rumors suggested that he was playing Wonder Woman love interest Steve Trevor, but since Chris Pine is already playing that character in the Wonder Woman movie, so that’s impossible. Unless (and this is just me grasping in the dark) he’s playing a descendant of Steve Trevor, which would give Gal Gadot’s Diana a modern ally that directly connects her to a past lover. Of course, that theory only works if this DC universe is willing to get as complicated and interconnected as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But anyway: there’s Scott Eastwood. Who the hell knows what he’s doing here?

Wait a second…why is Groot in this movie? Jokes aside, that’s obviously another one of those weird fungus zombies (or something like it) we saw earlier. In any case, this one is about to be hit by a subway train.

Joker costume change number four! And look! More henchmen in great costumes!

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 10.06.19 AM

Does this terrific action shot of Will Smith’s Deadshot shooting at something offscreen…

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 10.06.37 AM

…have anything to do with this shot of black fungus magic zombie things running at the camera? It certainly looks like it. It definitely looks like these things are going to be the cannon fodder of the movie. Note the weapon in the hands of the middle creature – could these things be transformed versions of the soldiers originally sent in alongside the Squad?

The camera loves Margot Robbie. Seriously. She’s a star. Anyone who saw The Wolf of Wall Street and Focus can tell you that, but this movie, good or bad, is going to solidify it.

Here’s another shot of not-Groot wreaking havoc in the subway. Just when you think this trailer can’t reveal something else truly bizarre…

Here’s Cara Delevingne before she gets possessed by a witch and becomes the Enchantress. Note the lack of evil magic dust! And the different hair color! And the fact that she doesn’t look ready to murder everyone in the room!

Joker costume change number five! Just in case you’re counting.

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 10.08.05 AM

From the look of things, El Diablo will get at least one big hero moment in the movie. But will he live to see the end credits? He certainly seems a bit more expendable than most the crew.

This shot of Delevingne presumably comes during her transformation into Enchantress. After all, she’s mostly submerged in a black pond and she’s starting to look like she wants to murder everyone else in the room.

Joker costume change number six! More importantly, he’s leaping off a catwalk and into a giant vat of chemicals. Hmm

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 10.08.45 AM

We all know the basics of the Joker’s origin story: a man (maybe an innocent, maybe a criminal) falls into a vat of chemicals and emerges with his physical appearance permanently transformed and his sanity gone. Here, he can be seen pulling Harley out of a vat of bubbling ooze as colors swirl around them. It’s another great shot in a trailer filled with great shots and it suggests that the Joker put his reluctant girlfriend through a similar process to kickstart her transformation into a maniac.

A clearer look at a previous Joker costume change. We’ll say this much: Leto wears the hell out of that jacket.

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 10.09.46 AM

Joker costume change number seven! We know from previous reports that this scene involves the Joker and Harley speeding through the streets of Gotham with Batman in hot pursuit.

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 10.09.56 AM

Oh, yeah: the threat here is totally magical. No doubt about it. Does this cloud create all of those black fungus zombies in the first place? It sure looks like it.

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 10.10.18 AM

And yep, the trailer concludes with Harley pausing the entire mission to engage in a little shoplifting. It’s a fun capper to a very fun trailer.

Aaaand titles. There you go. Suicide Squad opens on August 5, 2016. Feel free to further obsess over this trailer in the comments below.
