WATCH: New 'Suicide Squad' trailer gives glimpse of Batman

MANILA, Philippines – A new trailer for Suicide Squad has just dropped at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, and it is looking delightfully "vexing," as Harley Quinn says in it.

The trailer poses a conundrum: "What if Superman had decided to fly down and grab the president right out of the Oval Office? Who would have stopped him?"

Based on DC Comics characters, Suicide Squad brings together a motley crew of supervillains who are recruited for a deadly covert mission. They're bad people who "can do some good," as Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) says in the trailer.

There's a whole lot of gunfire and knife as Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Slipknot (Adam Beach), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), and El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) exchange the sassiest remarks – set to music by Lesley Gore ("You Don't Own Me") and Sweet ("Ballroom Blitz").

Amidst the high-octane action, Jared Leto's Joker and (what looks like) Batman – along with the Batmobile – also make an appearance.
