The trailer for the highly anticipated movie is finally here

Warner Bros

 Leto's 'Suicide Squad'  director, David Ayer, explained with a tweet that it's for his role as 'The Joker' in the 2016 film, 'Should we?'

Suicide Squad, written and directed by David Ayer, doesn’t hit theaters until August 5, 2016 and the trailer was supposed to be exclusively for Comic-Con. But a pirated version of the footage spread like wildfire and the studio wisely released the official version. Which looks awesome. A true highlight of the entire convention.

Ayer’s aesthetic here feels perfectly suited to this film. It’s super dark, super gritty, and very R-rated. If anything, Leto’s Joker - who doesn’t come in until the end - feels almost too colorful for this world. But he’s still very creepy and will surely play a big role not only here, but in the rest of the DC Movie Universe too.

Suicide Squad stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Viola Davis. Even though the movies don't hit cinemas till next, we can already tell its going to be awesome.

The bad news is, speaking with Deadline, the president of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution at Warner Bros., Sue Kroll, explained her disappointment this happened at all.

A statement said:

"Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday.

We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed.

We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation."
