"The Suicide Squad" director James Gunn has released his DCEU debut trailer, which was leaked ahead of schedule on Tuesday, June 22.
Warner Bros. publicly took the responsibility not too seriously and quickly released the official preview on their official YouTube channel after hours of leak.
According to Variety, with the title of "The Suicide Squad - Early Access Trailer Do Not Share," the unlisted YouTube video circulated online.
Even director Gunn called out his casts in a tweet about the release as he joked about the trailer being out "earlier than expected."

Warner Bros, later on, posted the trailer on their official pages writing on YouTube: 'Our only hope to save the world is a bunch of supervillains -- what could go wrong?'

The said film has been in development ever since 2016, which is the same year the original "Suicide Squad" feature was released.
Although David Ayer is the original feature's director, Warner Bros. began searching for a new director to lead the second movie.
The production reportedly considered Ruben Fleischer, David S. Gordon, and Mel Gibson.
Gunn, 54, was eventually chosen in 2018.
Although he was hired to develop a new "Superman" film, he could switch projects and focus on "The Suicide Squad."
