Every now and then I hear something about the
Squadron Supreme* Suicide Squad movie, and go “Oh yeah, they are making that.” I honestly know very little about these characters outside of cartoons like Batman The Animated Series, Justice League Unlimited, and Young Justice.
While there is a part of me that hopes that this DC movie does well, I just can’t see it being as successful as say… Guardians of The Galaxy, which was another unlikely choice for a movie, but Marvel was able to pull it off.
I will say that the concept of bad guys forced to be good guys or else they will be killed by a bomb or something in their head sounds kind of awesome, or at the very least… more awesome than SONY’s
canceled Sinister Six movie… wait, the Sinister Six spin off from the now canceled Amazing Spider-Man movie series is still happening? Crazy.
As far as I’m concerned, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, which features a costume more similar with the Arkham games than her original DC Animated appearance, is the main reason to see this, with Will Smith’s Deadshot being a close second.
I’ve wanted a movie with Harley Quinn since I was a child, although back then I assumed it would be some sort of Tim Burton Batman movie where The Joker came back… some how… but that’s besides the point.
The first picture, btw: was posted today, as well as the one to the right of Deadshot. Deadshot, btw: should not be confused for Teen Titans villain Deathstroke/Slade Wilson or Marvel comic’s Deadpool… who are both more awesome than Deadshot.
*for some reason, every time I try and type Suicide Squad, I type Marvel’s parody of The Justice League, Squadron Supreme. How awesome would a Squadron Supreme movie be though?
