The Suicide Squad assembly has been introduced by James Gunn at the DC Fandome this weekend. Although fans were hoping that the filmmaker would drop a trailer and give fans a look at the cast members' villain roles in action, the director chose to release a montage of the behind-the-scenes footage to tease not just the characters but also the plot of the movie. In the clip, Warner Bros and Gunn confirmed that John Cena plays the Pacemaker while Idris Elba essays the role of Bloodsport. 

Describing his role in the movie, the actor-wrestler compared him with the Avengers' Captain America. "He's like a douchey Captain America," Cena said, with Gunn taking over to add that Peacemaker would go to any length for peace. The video also gave fans a look at Cena in the superhero costume. Describing the movie, Idris deems The Suicide Squad as a "twisted fantasy of characters" before he says, "It's like a massive, graphic novel brought to life." 

In the "roll call" video, producer Peter Safran teased the plot of the movie. He said, “This one is completely unique. This is a gritty, 1970s war movie combined with the brilliance of James Gunn’s characters and comedy." Well, he wasn't wrong! The BTS video montage sees the cast having a ball while the sets' exploding, Harley Quinn having the time of her life as she holds up a missile-launcher and the squad loving the experience of being bad. Gunn said that The Suicide Squad was "by far the most fun I've ever had making a movie."
