Just ahead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros is ramping up a ton of promotion, including a new Suicide Squad trailer.

The new trailer comes hot on the heels of stylish new posters, which transforms the film’s rogue gallery of villains into a collection of stylized skulls.

Set against Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” fans get their first look at a ton of footage and a basic premise for the film.

The Squad has an all-star cast: Leading this team of freaks is Joel Kinnaman‘s Rick Flagg and leading him is Viola Davis‘ Amanda Waller with Will Smith is playing Deadshot, a master assassin who never misses. Margot Robbie is Harley Quinn, the deranged former flame of the Joker.

Cara Delevingne is the troubled mage known as Enchantress. Bored under all of that make-up is Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, one of Batman’s coolest villains and Jai Courtney is Captain Boomerang, a baddie who throws boomerangs.

Jared Leto is in the mix as the Clown Prince of Crime himself, the Joker and Ben Affleck is certain to make an appearance as Batman/Bruce Wayne.

Also appearing is Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo and Karen Fukuhara as Katana.

The new Suicide Squad trailer for what director David Ayer calls “the worst heroes ever” arrived during The CW’s two-hour DC Comics extravaganza which included a new episode of The Flash and the half-hour specials DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now at 9 PM and DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League at 9:30pm.

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Suicide Squad is in theaters August 5th.
