Dave and I saw Suicide Squad and it was not painless!
Quite the opposite.
We laughed a lot, though. Not at the jokes. At other parts. And we fell in love with Slipknot, the lovable scamp who can climb ANYTHING! With a grappling gun. Um...and he actually can't even do that.
To wash the taste of that movie out of our mouths (tastes like one of the weird extreme Mountain Dew flavours), we read Michel Fiffe's Copra: Round One for the latest instalment of our summer book club. It was a much better "Suicide Squad" story.
I have been looking but I could not verify what Diablo spells with fire, so Dave and I will have to agree to disagree until we get a gif. Or until we forget all about it.
So, to recap, here is the line-up that I think the Suicide Squad movie should have had:
Harley Quinn (but NO JOKER. POST JOKER!)
Better, right? And much smaller, which is important.
Also, I forgot to mention this, but the whole point of the Suicide Squad is to do jobs that super heroes can't/won't do. This particular "mission" was something that normal super heroes totally could have done. A Suicide Squad movie should be like Ocean's 11 with comic book villains. It should have been a heist, like having to break into the Batcave to steal something for Waller. Or something. This movie made no goddamn sense.
And it needed way more Slipknot. WAY MORE.
We hardly knew ye, rope guy.
Some photos have hit the internet since we recorded of Sebastian Stan filming his mystery movie in Ireland. Still nothing on his IMDB page, but the working title at least seems to be We Have Always Lived in the Castle. Which is clearly code for 1960s-era Star Wars Sequel:
Nah. It's actually a thriller based on a Shirley Jackson story. I hope it's not too scary for meeeeeee!!!!
This is my favourite image from the set so far:
What's he going to do with that hammer?! What's in that bag?! A head??!! A GHOST??!! Eeeeeek!!!!
Here's that Super Hero Beat Down: Nightwing vs Winter Soldier video. It's...something else.
