“I’m a hitman; I don’t save people,” states Deadshot, proving that he has earned his catchy moniker in the latest violence-filled clip from Suicide Squad. Deadshot does sound a lot better than what his friends (if he has any) call him: Floyd.
Most of Deadshot’s previous footage emphasized Will Smith’s comedic abilities and hilarious one-liners, but the new promo clip wants to make sure audiences know Deadshot is indeed one of “the worst of the worst.” Most of his lines are reminiscent of a middle school fight where bullies intimidate and taunt each other, although these fights get a little more deadly.
Will Smith is joined by Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jared Leto, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and more in the DC Comics’ antithesis to the Avengers, where a group of villains are assembled to save the world (though they may commit some crimes along the way). Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5.
