Ben Affleck’s Batman Makes a Splash in New Suicide Squad Trailer
Stars Jared Leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Cara Delevinge helped unveil the highly-anticipated new trailer for Suicide Squad at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night.
While Ben Affleck didn’t join his co-stars on stage, the Boston-bred actor’s version of Batman made quite the splash in the latest preview for the superhero—or should we say supervillian—team-up flick. Suicide Squad involves a group of bad guys who are enlisted by the government to go on a dangerous black-ops mission in order to secure their freedom.
Judging by the trailer, it looks like the Dark Knight will come to the rescue for Robbie’s Harley Quinn, an accomplice to Leto’s Joker, at some point in the film. Meanwhile, Smith is set to play the sharp-shooting Deadshot while Delevingne has been cast as the wicked witch Enchantress.
While Batfleck’s debut was one of the few highlights in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, don’t expect to see much more than a cameo from the Caped Crusader when the latest installment in the DC Comics cinematic universe flies into theaters this summer.
Rounding out the cast are Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Tatsu Yamashiro as Katana, Adam Beach as Slipknot, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc.

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5.
