Details In The Second Suicide Squad Trailer Only Fans Noticed

The Suicide Squad is coming, with another
trailer teasing all the reckless rebellion in store. A lot goes on in the second trailer
for The Suicide Squad, so let's break down what you may have missed the first time watching. In The Suicide Squad, the former aspiring
Mrs. J will channel her distaste for her ex-boyfriend in various creative ways.

The first official trailer for the film showed
Harley Quinn sporting a "property of no one" tattoo, a clear reference to her break-up
with the Joker and the fact that she's loving the single life. It also featured a scene in which the lovably
kooky criminal tells the Thinker that if he has "personalized license plates" on any vehicle
he owns, he'll die — even though it's not an agreed-upon offense or consequence for
the supervillain in affiliation with Task Force X. That remark is another shot at the
Joker, who was seen in 2016's Suicide Squad driving a car with a "HAHAHA" vanity plate. In the new trailer, Harley kicks things up
a notch by declaring her Joker hatred in the most obvious way yet: a leather jacket that
reads "live fast, die clown." You know what they say: Nothing like having a toxic ex to
motivate you to live your life on your own terms. James Gunn has a penchant for infusing groovy
tunes into his movies, so it's no surprise that this new trailer features an energetic
backing track.

Where the previously released trailer for
The Suicide Squad made use of Steely Dan's "Dirty Work," the new trailer features a cover
of a hit pop song — one that should be a familiar tune to anyone who frequents sporting
events. The song in question is "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss
Him Goodbye," originally by Steam. Here, it's been slowed down and given a little bit of
a Western flair, if those church bells ringing in the distance are any indication. Those
touches definitely indicate how Gunn wants to give off some Magnificent Seven vibes with
his supervillain team-up film, and from what we've seen so far, he's definitely nailed
it on the head. Seeing as how DC basically gave Gunn carte
blanche to do whatever he wanted with the characters, we'll probably have to say goodbye
to quite a few Squad members when the film's released in theaters and on HBO Max in August.

We get our first glimpse of the weirdness
that is Polka-Dot Man in the new trailer for The Suicide Squad, as the notorious Batman
villain gives us a sneak peek of his odd — and colorful — powers. In the movie's red-band trailer released last
week, we saw his signature white uniform, which is covered in — you guessed it — polka
dots, but the footage didn't offer much more insight into the character. Now we know what
he's capable of — and although it looks like Polka-Dot Man's skills start and stop
at releasing floating polka dots into the air, it's not that simple. "I thought you were the crazy one." "I am." Also known as Abner Krill, Polka-Dot Man controls
each small dot on his costume through his utility belt. Once the dots are released from
his uniform, they are able to transform into a plethora of deadly devices like buzzsaws,
flares, or even human fists.

These dots can also be used for teleportation,
but it doesn't look like that's what Polka-Dot Man is using them for in the new Suicide Squad
trailer. When he crouches down, he slowly releases the creepy, colorful dots into the
air, and we can only assume they're about to do some serious harm to the pair of oblivious
guards in front of him. King Shark, voiced by Sylvester Stallone,
made a big splash in the first The Suicide Squad trailer thanks to his love of gobbling
people up, tearing them in half, and his ability to recognize his own hand. The squad's resident
aquatic predator/human hybrid gets plenty of attention in the second trailer, and this
time fans get a bit of insight into his peculiar reading habits.

While scenes of various Suicide Squad members
getting up to time-killing activities in prison flash by, there's a quick shot of King Shark
standing in a room full of guards and reading a book. This moment reveals to the audiences something
surprising: King Shark's fluency in epistemological philosophy. A pause at just the right moment in the trailer
reveals that the book ol' Sharky is studying up on is The Varieties of Religious Experience:
A Study in Human Nature by William James, an American philosopher and psychologist who
rose to prominence in the late 19th century.

The Varieties of Religious Experience is a
collection of essays compiled and published in 1902, leading up to James' development
of philosophical pragmatism, and was groundbreaking for its approach to the study of how personal
religious belief and practice has shaped society. A few of its entries might be pertinent to
a prisoner forced to come to terms with their own mortality. There's a chance that King
Shark might be reading the 14th and 15th lectures, which explore the inherent values of saintliness.
Lecture number eight discusses the inability of a sick soul to find happiness simply by
outnumbering their negative experiences with positive ones. The very first section of the
book attempts to separate an object's value from its origin, echoing the old antihero
tradition of becoming more than the sum of your broken, tortured parts. Any one of these
concepts could prove life-changing to a creature, unique and alone, in the custody of a society
that he doesn't understand. However, this would all be dependent on King
Shark actually reading the book the right way and not upside down.

Gotta love him. Another interesting takeaway from the trailer
includes two members of Task Force X wielding the same weapon. At first, we see Javelin holding his javelin
during the slow-motion antihero walk as the group appears to be departing for the fictional
island of Corto Maltese. Once an Olympic athlete, Javelin is highly
skilled at throwing his weapon, of which he has several variations, most including explosives
of some kind. However, it's Harley Quinn we see with the
intricately engraved javelin the most in the new trailer for The Suicide Squad. This doesn't exactly bode well for Javelin
himself, who appears in the trailers significantly less than everyone else. If Harley is the
one wielding his weapon, it's likely that Javelin doesn't make it very far in the movie
— a close parallel to that of Slipknot, who was the first to die in 2016's Suicide
Squad.

How Harley comes to acquire Javelin's javelin
remains to be seen, but how she handles the new weapon will definitely be a blast to watch. "I don't think that you know what to expect." "Don't get too attached." Ratcatcher 2's gonna… catch rats In the new trailer for The Suicide Squad,
we also get a much better indication of what's to come with Ratcatcher 2. Daniela Melchior will be playing the second
incarnation of the character — who, in the pages of DC Comics, was the protégé of the
first Ratcatcher, Otis Flannegan. At the 29-second mark of the trailer, when
Amanda Waller bursts into Ratcatcher 2's jail cell, a photo taped to the wall seems to be
one of Ratcatcher 2 with an older gentleman, likely Otis. Much like Marvel's Ant-Man does with his six-legged
buddies, Ratcatcher — whose real name isn't known as of yet — has the ability to tame
and control rats.

She seems to control or call them with the
help of some kind of light — even on the battlefield, where she's seen to call hundreds,
if not thousands, of rats to swarm to her side and do her devilish bidding. One of the strangest new additions to the
roster for The Suicide Squad is Floyd Belkin, aka T.D.K. In the comics, he's known as Arm-Fall-Off
Boy, Splitter, or the Detachable Kid. As his descriptive nicknames suggest, T.D.K.'s
power is simply the fact that, well, his arms fall off. He appeared in the world of DC Comics
when he tried and failed to try out for the Legion of Super Heroes.

Surprisingly, when
he demonstrated his power — which, again, is simply that his arm comes off like that
of a plastic-doll — his petition for membership was respectfully declined. Exactly how this obscure character will factor
into The Suicide Squad remains to be seen. Did getting rejected from the Legion of Super
Heroes drive him to a life of crime? Is the fact that he's being played by Nathan
Fillion a sign that he'll have a bigger role in the movie than first meets the eye? It's
too soon to say. However, one thing the new trailer does give
fans is a look at T.D.K.'s gloriously goofy power in action. Toward the end of the trailer,
there's a quick shot of both of T.D.K.'s arms popping right out of their sockets, complete
with a comically grotesque squish sound. They also appear to hover in the air for a moment
after they come out, suggesting slight complexity to T.D.K.'s odd power. Harley took the "What
the…?" right out of our mouths. Start counting down the days for The Suicide
Squad to arrive in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6.
