Damn you kids and your cell phones. Pretty much right after Suicide Squad director David Ayer went and expressed his disappointment that someone had leaked the Comic-Con footage online in crappy-quality, Warner Bros. decided to step in and save the day, by officially releasing the sneak peek – as well as the movie’s official logo in glorious high-definition.
“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.” – Sue Kroll of WB
