While the footage doesn’t reveal much in terms of plot, it does feature a new look at Elba on set. The actor will portray the character Vigilante in the film alongside fellow stars Margot Robbie, Viola Davis and John Cena, who is also in the set video.

In the video, it appears as though armed guards are ushering Elba and Cena’s characters into an armored truck. Perhaps this is the government arresting the characters and forcing them to join Task Force X. Additionally, Elba can be seen wearing a large cloak that could be hiding his character’s super suit. This is the second leak from the set of The Suicide Squad in as many days.
The plot of Gunn’s The Suicide Squad has remained mostly under wraps with much of the film still a mystery. A number of the stars’ roles still remain undisclosed.
