So far the main cast for this supervillain team-up includes Jared Leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Tom Hardy, and supermodel Cara Delevingne, possibly joined by Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Oh, and they want Oprah to play the Suicide Squad’s boss, Amanda Waller. No big deal.
With a list of actors like that, it’s totally possible to take clips from existing movies and knit together a plausible Suicide Squad trailer. And that’s exactly what YouTuber Alex Luthor decided to do.
Hardy, Smith and Jai Courtney (Spartacus, Divergent) have all had action movie roles already, which gives us plenty of scenes where they’re doing potentially supervillainous stuff. And while Delevingne and Robbie are both are at the start of their film careers, you can still turn them into a vaguely convincing Enchantress and Harley Quinn, respectively, with a bit of clever editing.
Alex Luthor (yes, we’re guessing that isn’t his or her real name) also made this awesome trailer for the upcoming Aquaman movie, using clips from various DC adaptations combined with Atlantis-looking fantasy movies. It helps that Jason Momoa has spent the past few years playing the kind of roles that could conceivably translate to the king of Atlantis.
