Screen Rant writes that the clip shows Harley Quinn's new red and black costume inspired by the character's comic book outfits. Cena's Peacemaker also features heavily in the video, hinting that the character will have a major role in the film's plot.
Producer Peter Safran had previously said that The Suicide Squad will be a "total reboot" and not a direct sequel. "It's everything you would hope from a James Gunn script and I think that says a lot and that promises a lot and I know that we will deliver a lot," Safran had said.
Nicolas Cage said he is excited for The Old Way, adding "to find new ground to play at 57 is indeed galvanising"
"And whilst there is deep sadness, I'm filled with gratitude and love," Hugh Jackman said while breaking the news of his father's death.
