Fans Think Henry Cavill's Superman Was Murdered In Latest 'Suicide Squad' Trailer

The final trailer for The Suicide Squad was released last night, and fans are freaking out over one key detail - specifically that Henry Cavill's Superman is in intensive care and fighting for his life. That's... pretty dark.

The new trailer, which you can see below, opens with the shocking revelation that Bloodsport (Idris Elba) is in prison for putting Superman in the ICU after shooting him with a Kryptonite bullet. Fans will know that The Suicide Squad is set in the same universe as Man Of Steel and Justice League, meaning it's definitely the Henry Cavill version of the character who fell victim to this attempted murder.

Understandably, DC fans everywhere immediately wanted to know if Superman was okay. You can't just tell us he's in intensive care and expect us not to worry, after all, especially if he's got a Kryptonite bullet lodged in his chest. The fans were not happy.

Fortunately, The Suicide Squad director James Gunn was on hand to let fans know that Superman was probably going to be okay. Responding to a Twitter user who asked if the big blue boy scout survived his run-in with Bloodsport, Gunn wrote: "Perhaps with one less spleen than he had before but yes I think so." Phew.

While this line was clearly intended to be a throwaway joke that establishes Bloodsport as a genuine threat, fans are upset at the idea that the all-powerful Superman could be beaten like this. Of course it is worth noting that the Man Of Steel has ended up in hospital in past comics and films plenty of times, usually because of some nonsense involving Kryponite. But it's not about how many times our hero gets beat down, is it? It's all about whether he can get back up - and Superman always gets back up. it just make take him a little bit longer this time, is all.
