Trailer of the much-awaited anti-hero film, "Suicide Squad," made noise as it was dropped on Tuesday and surfaced on social media. The teaser showed off all the characters but focused more on Harley Quinn.

It was evidently seen that the cliffhanger highlighted the role of Margot Robbie, according to Forbes. The antihero movie might be the "first female-centric superhero comic book flick" after the dominance of "Iron Man" as the lady super villain is known as the most popular lady in the comic book world.

To recall, the psychiatric intern was created by Paul Dini, Bruce Timm, Eric Radomski and was first voiced by Arleen Sorkin for "Batman: The Animated Series" in 1992. Later, she has been part of mainstream American comic book, particularly in DC Comics, since 1999.

In fact, she's now a sought after character making her comic books one of the biggest sellers of the publishing house. Also, as a major player, her signature outfit became the most in-demand costume for the Halloween and the most used in cosplays, making it the biggest moneymaker.

Hence, a possible stand-alone film for Harley Quinn might be a profitable risk if ever the movie goers buy the 25-year-old Australian actress' take of the character. Meanwhile, set to the Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," the trailer sent goose bumps to many as it is way better than the first leaked teaser that came out after the Comic-Con in July, Celebuzz reported.

Furthermore, the upcoming David Ayer's third installment in the DC Extended Universe also gave a glimpse of Dead Shot [Will Smith], The Joker [Jared Leto] and Enchantress [Cara Delevingne]. Also, fans saw Captain Boomerang [Jai Courtney and Killer Croc [Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje].

Other stars who will be seen are Viola Davis, Ben Affleck -- as Batman -- Scott Eastwood, Common -- as Tattooed Man -- and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. "Suicide Squad" is set to the theaters on Aug. 5, 2016.
