How excited was the audience at the MTV Movie Awards for the newest Suicide Squad trailer? So excited, they almost toppled the barricades when stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and Cara Delevingne came out to introduce the clip. Leto said, “Sweat, blood, and semen…this sick and twisted movie has it all,” which is totally gross, but probably to be expected from the man who gifted his costars a live rat and a dead hog during filming. Watch the full trailer above or over at MTV.

The new spot for the movie about a band of bad guys was notable for the good guy who made an appearance: a fully-suited Batman (presumably Ben Affleck), who we see in several quick glimpses. Those include a flash of him carrying a lifeless woman to the armored Batmobile and a particularly wild chase scene that culminates with the Dark Knight clinging to the top of the Joker’s hot purple Vaydor. (This appears to be the same sequence that was captured in paparazzi footage from the movie’s Toronto set almost a full year ago.)

In other Squad news, the trailer also makes great use of the Sweet song “The Ballroom Blitz” to score some explosive, fast-cut action, along with jokier moments with the wry Deadshot (Will Smith), the unhinged Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and the fire-spewing El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) who really should just stick to nonalcoholic beverages.

Suicide Squad — including the Caped Crusader — hits theaters on Aug. 5.
