Suicide-Squad-movie-roster-minus-SlipknotSo given the history of my feelings about this movie… I became more and more interested to see it, more so than Batman VS Superman (still haven’t seen it). Going to this movie I had ZERO expectations and went into this open minded… Wow.. I was surprised. The movie was sold out and the theater was packed! I found myself really liking the film and the characters, it had me laughing and cheering for the bad guys. I really liked it, more so than some Marvel movies. Personally I don’t why it’s getting a bad rap from movie critics. Oh sure it had some problems, but want movie doesn’t? I thought everything went smoothly and the action was well done. I could see the that David Ayer wanted to do more in some parts and push the boundaries a bt. But wasn’t able to.

*Spoilers**Spoilers**Spoilers**Spoilers**Spoilers**Spoilers*

Now I was rather shocked that they killed off Slipknot rather quickly.. Yet surprised they killed him off, just thought he’d have more to do haha. Diablo on the other was sad to see him go…. But then again you don’t know if he really died or not. I really like how they brought his character life and the backstory.

Deadshot! It’s nice to see him on the big screen and kinda looking forward to conflict between him and Batman. I like want they did and Will Smith was perfect for the roll.

Killer Croc was interesting. I like the make up effects and what CG there was on worked. When he did speak it was kinda meh. Funny at times, but just meh. He was the Tank of the group.

The rest of the cast was great and Katana was awesome. Just wish they gave her a bigger rol in the film rather than just “bodyguard”.

harley_quinn___transparent_background__by_camo_flauge-da56qq6Harley Quinn….. I’ve always liked the character of Harley when she was first made for the Batman: The Animated Series. She pushed the Joker to a whole new level and a team (as crazy as they were) worked. At first I was pissed on that they made her out to be in the movie. This was before I watched the movie tho.. But after the movie I was beyond happy on what they did and how Margot Robbie brought her to life on the big screen. I liked the fact they brought in the red and black costume for a “cameo” type of thing. After reading up a bit I guess they are working on her own movie! Reportedly, the film will not only be a star vehicle for the Harley Quinn character but also introduce a variety of other female anti-heroes, heroes, and villains into the DC Extended Universe. Catwoman, Black Canary, Batgirl, and Poison Ivy are rumored to appear in the film as well. The story line from what they said is to follow the Harley Quinn comic book storylines Gotham Sirens and/or Birds of Prey. But there is no date at this time and who knows what happens..

…… Jared Leto………………… As the Joker………..

suicide-squad-joker-harley-quinn-jared-leto-margot-robbieI’m going to build a Lego and think about this for a sec… I’m having trouble with this one here…….

…………..

…………………………… Building……………………

Still building………..

5dca6787b8d40f8a75cc32e97ad0e8e4And back…. Leto was the only of the movie I’m unsure about… I don’t know if I like him as the Joker… It’s a different take that for sure. But it wasn’t like Heath’s Joker where I just fell in love with the character. Leto is just… I don’t know, I don’t really have any words for it. Maybe I have to watch it again to make a better opinion. But as of right now, sadly I’m not liking what he has done. Also it seems like there was a Lot of scenes cut from the movie with the Joker in it. I don’t know…. It just left you feeling odd.

BUT! At any rate, go see the movie! It was rather good and I enjoyed it. I like it a lot more than Guardians of the Galaxy, I know right! So far the Suicide Squad earned an estimated $20.5 million at the box office on its opening Thursday preview night, smashing the August preview night record previously held by 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. So that’s saying something 😉

Bronze Age Joker

Bronze

Wow, you sure like to come back with a bang.
You’re the Bronze Age Joker, and the beginning of the swell of Joker’s return to popularity.
You don’t take kindly to being duped, and your team-mates lives’ tend to only last as long as their usefulness. While you retain the pranks of the Silver Age, they have grown much more deadly.
As your life heads into darker territory, you do seem to occasionally relapse into your lighter self.
There is one other key difference between you and the latter incarnations: You need no Harley. The idea hasn’t even crossed your mind.Reintroduced in “Joker’s Five Way Revenge”, the Joker combined his deadly efficiency from the Golden Age with his wacky pranks from the Silver Age.

I love variety.  I love switching it up and tackling a new challenge.  If you need an artist that can think on their feet and adapt to nearly any situation, I’m your man.  If on the other hand, you want an art-bot that kicks out preprogrammed homogenized slush, then call Robert Finklebum Art & Linoleum.  They come highly recommended and can treat your rain gutters at the same time.

As a history lesson, I grew up as a product of the 80’s and so the majority of my influences started there.  I grew up watching cartoons, reading comics, collecting toys, playing video games, and drawing, drawing, drawing.  All of that mashes together in my collection of work.  I would fill sketchbooks with all kinds of crazy images since I was able to hold a pencil.  I took all the art classes I could in school and then went on to get a BFA in illustration from BYU in 2003.”

Gotham-TV-Show-batman-3206-2048

So the TV show Gotham executive producer Bruno Heller just announced the Red Hood will be coming into the show. He talked with CBR on what the fans can expect. During this interview Heller was asked a question on whether the rest of the season would be costume free.

“That’s a good question. Especially now that we have a pick up, I always take a long-term view of a show. I’m looking at several years. So we’re in no hurry to [do that] — there’s going to be an episode that involves the Red Hood, which picks up that strand, the costume strand, and sort of gives a kind of philosophical base, if that’s not too pretentious a word. Why costumes? What’s the power of costumes? What’s the power of a mask? All of that groundwork will be laid sort of culturally for that side of the DC Universe before we start rolling into the more spectacular spandex type of deal.”

He also stated sense Gotham picked up for a second season, that they’re always looking forward to the future and there is no big hurry to get into costume. From the details it sounds that the Red Hood or at least the character will appear towards the end of the first season. I know that Gotham as mix reviews, mostly with the fans of the Dark Knight. Personally I rather enjoy the show and like what they are trying to do with it. I would say this.. At first I was like many, “How can you have a Batman show with no Batman?”. But I found myself liking the story lines and over all feel for the show. I really like what they are doing with the Penguin and show his rise to power.

**spoiler alert**

Red_Hood_Batman_'66_001

For those who don’t know who the Red Hood is… He first appeared in detective comics number $168 titled “The Man Behind The Red Hood” written by Bill Finger. Red Hood was a mastermind criminal & claiming to be a lab worker intended to rob 1 million dollars and retire. While attempting to rob the chemical plant his men were dispatched and was cornered by Batman.  Seeing that there was no escape he jumped into a vat of chemicals and swim to freedom when he came out he realized he was deformed. His hair had turned green, skin became super white and his lips were red. Because of this deformity his sanity broke and later change is primary alias from The Red Hood to the Joker.

Alan Moore wrote an alternative origin for the Red Hood; the man who would become the Joker is portrayed as a former chemical engineer & a struggling stand-up comedian with a pregnant wife. He is approached by the Red Hood gang who wanted him to lead them through the chemical plant he once worked so they can rob the factory next door. He accepts this.. But only to make enough money to start a better life for his family. The gang gives him the Red Hood costume, which has been worn by many men before. This way, they can falsely identify the Red Hood as their leader just case something goes wrong. On the day of the robbery, police inform him that his wife died in a accident. He attempts to back out of the robbery, with no luck. During the robbery, the plant’s security men spot the intruders and shoot the other criminals dead. The engineer tries to flee, but Batman appears and corners him. He jumps off the catwalk into the chemical vat to escape. As in the previous origin story, he goes insane after discovering what the chemicals have done to his face and becomes the Joker.
