Movie villains unite in the parody trailer for Suicide Squad: B-Team

suicide squad b team trailer the wet bandits
The worst of DC Comics’ super-villains are teaming up in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, but what if some of the cinematic world’s less-than-notorious antagonists united for their own big-screen adventure?

The answer to that question appears to be found in a faux trailer for Suicide Squad: B-Team, a parody of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Suicide Squad that brings together a host of iconic (but somewhat ineffective) villains from a long list of popular movies over the years — along with Mrs. Doubtfire, for some reason.

Created and hosted by the Funny Or Die team, the Suicide Squad: B-Team trailer is set to the tune of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” echoing the official trailer for Suicide Squad. The faux movie preview then cuts together footage from a long list of films featuring some of Hollywood’s most memorable bumbling bad guys (and ladies).

Among the characters featured in the trailer are Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers films, as well as The Wet Bandits from the Home Alone movies, Shooter McGavin from Happy Gilmore, Judge Doom from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Beetlejuice from, Beetlejuice, Winifred from Hocus Pocus, and both Biff and Griff Tannen from Back to the Future and Back to the Future Part II.

Also appearing in the trailer is Gollum from The Lord of the Rings trilogy, King Koopa from the Super Mario Bros. movie, the live-action version of The Grinch from How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Simon Phoenix from Demolition Man, and Tony Perkis from Heavyweights. There are also some brief cameos by Shredder from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, Ivan Ooze from the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers movie, and Teri from Battlefield Earth. Did they leave anyone out?

And surprisingly, the trailer also includes appearances from a few characters who are generally considered heroic — or at the very least, good — characters in their respective films: Sloth from The Goonies and Mrs. Doubtfire from, well … Mrs. Doubtfire.

Basically, the trailer presents a dream team of hard-luck villains, although it could be argued that Wesley Snipes’ Simon Phoenix (from Demolition Man) could actually hold his own on the real Suicide Squad roster. But hey, who wouldn’t want to see Shooter McGavin team up with The Wet Bandits and Biff Tannen, right?

While we won’t ever get to see Suicide Squad: B-Team on the big screen, the real Suicide Squad hits theaters  August 5.
