Watch Viola Davis Lay Down the Law in the New Suicide Squad Trailer

1 minute read

As part of the lead-up to Suicide Squad‘s Aug. 5 debut, Warner Bros. released an extended promo Monday spotlighting cutthroat government agent Amanda Waller — played by Viola Davis — the squad’s puppet master.

The minute-long clip shows Waller talking to her right-hand man — tactical expert Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) — as she explains the mission to him. “Flag, it’s a need to know. And all you need to know is that you work for me,” she says. “Everyone has a weakness, and a weakness can be leveraged.”

Viewers can also catch a glimpse of a few of the villainous squad members — including the Joker (Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Deadshot (Will Smith).

Watch the trailer below.
