There’s an unwritten rule in the wake of a DC superhero movie trailer coming out that someone, somewhere, will inevitably make a mash-up using the audio track of the trailer with footage from the beloved DC animated universe, and it will be fantastic. Suicide Squad is certainly no different.
This newest iteration comes from Reuven White, who takes bits of Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League, and Justice League: Unlimited) to make his mash-up. There’s a few swap-outs simply due to the restrictions of what the shows did or didn’t do—Firefly replaces El Diablo, for example, and there’s a random shot of Green Lantern and Hawkgirl smooching in there for some reason—but it’s still a good recreation of the new live-action trailer.
We’re pretty excited for Suicide Squad, but this definitely makes us wonder what the film would have looked like with these more traditional versions of DC’s villains. Classic Harley was, is, and always will be the best.
