Suicide Squad


Suicide Squad looks Batman batshit insane.

But will it be any good?

Judging by the trailer, the film really is aiming to be the opposite of the other major DC movie this year, Batman v Superman. Where the other is dark and brooding, Suicide Squad is light and frothy and … psychotic?

The Suicide Squad are a team of supervillains released from prison to do dirty work for the government.

Will Smith plays Deadshot. Tom Hardy … no, wait, that’s not Tom Hardy. That’s Discount Tom Hardy, Jai Courtney as somebody called Captain Boomerang. Margot Robbie plays psychotic Harley Quinn in an iteration of the character that has divided virgins geeks comic-book enthusiasts.

Classic Harley Quinn

There’s also a crocodile man, somebody who makes fire, and someone possessed by a witch.

And then there’s Jared Leto as the Joker, looking like he’s going for the mania of Cesar Romero and the solemnity of Heath Ledger, with just a smattering of Jack Nicholson.

If this all works, it should be a fun, goofy way to end the summer.

  1. Absolutely cannot wait to see this film, looks like a whole bunch of psychotic fun. And I’ve mistaken Jai Courtney for Tom Hardy all this time! I seriously thought Tom Hardy was in this and was wondering why his name wasn’t on the poster. What an almost-disappointment.
