LUCKY COMIC CON attendees got to get a sneak peek at the trailer for the new Suicide Squad movie at the weekend.

Inevitably though, it leaked online, so now we all get a look.

Warner Bros have officially released the promo film and the internet is all a-chatter about it.

There’s Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
