The exact release time for The Suicide Squad trailer is not available, but it should be around Warner’s usual slot (9:30 p.m. IST / 9 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. GMT). For DC fans in India, there will also be three local language versions of The Suicide Squad trailer – Hindi, Tamil and Telugu – in addition to the English original. From Guardians of the Galaxy writer-director James Gunn, The Suicide Squad is a smooth reboot that involves a large set of new cast members alongside those returning from the 2016 original. It will be available on HBO Max and in US theaters the same day, and only in theaters everywhere else, including India.
Gunn unveiled a new poster for The Suicide Squad on Thursday and wrote in a caption alongside, “I’m just going to drop this here. Did I mention that a trailer is coming tomorrow? The new Suicide Squad poster carries the slogan “They’re dying to save the world,” which is an ironic reference to their fate. Gunn has previously hinted that most of the new members of the Suicide Squad lineup might not survive until the end of the new DC movie, adding, “No character was protected by DC. They gave me carte blanche to do whatever I wanted. It was one of the things we agreed to before I came to work for them. I wasn’t looking for shock value, but wanted the audience to know anything could happen.
