Suicide Squad - The Joker, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and Boomerang walk into a bar


#402

We have a sequel director.

Gavin O’Conner directed The Accountant and Warrior


#403

Now that’s a buddy movie!


#404

Also sounds like my favorite light metal band.


#405

I don’t actually even know where to put this. WTF is happening at Warner Bros


#406

I am so confused right now.


#407

I kind of get it. People hated Leto’s Joker, and I can picture Phoenix doing nutty just fine. I’m more worried about Todd Phillips directing.


#408

But Leto may reprise in Squad 2. So … this will … it won’t … it doesn’t …

@BrianRubin is right: I am so confused right now.


#409

Love or hate his portrayal, Joker was not the reason why this movie wasn’t great.


#410

WB said this is the plan. They’ll have the main Justice League story and characters, but everything else will be one-offs and may or may not be part of that movie canon. Basically, they’re going to throw whatever they’ve got at the wall and see what sticks.


#411

I’m guessing the cloning of Heath Ledger was a complete failure.


#412

A god damned shame, that is.


#413

One of the (few) decent things that DC has done in the last decade or so was to obliterate the Joker’s origin story – he was a madman with no past or an ever-shifting one (c.f., Ledger’s multiple stories about his “dad” in Dark Knight). An official origin story sound like a terrible idea.


#414

I think I said this earlier. The Joker origin story should be a Tales from the Crypt/Creepshow style movie. 4 different stories, narrated by Joker with a meta plot stitching them together. It’s a perfect fit for the character.


#415

Cathy Yan wrote and directed Dead Pigs.


#416

I have never heard of Dead Pigs, but Margot Robbie was the main reason to watch Suicide Squad so I am tentatively pleased.


#417

When was Harley Quinn ever in the Birds of Prey?


#418

Same here, tentatively optimistic.


#419

She was in the short-lived TV show. Played by Mia Sara, no less!


#420

just a link to the recent direct to video animated suicide squad movie and thread i made for it: New direct to video Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay

looks like i should have created the thread here, in movies, instead of tenuously relating it to the comic book source.


#421

Dunno, maybe she came along for the ride once or twice when they got Catwoman to cross sides and help out? Not that I really care what comic background there may be, if we get a fun movie with both Harley and the Birds in it.
