Jared Leto Joker performance

Method acting is nothing new among the stars of Hollywood movies. Names such as Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Daniel Day-Lewis and more are known for taking a role and staying in that role through the entirety of production, whether they’re shooting a scene or not. And when it comes to his comic book role in Suicide Squad, actor Jared Leto decided to throw himself into the Joker the same way.

In a recent interview, Will Smith revealed that during the six-month production of the DC Comics movie, he never actually met Jared Leto, and only interacted with the actor in character as the Batman villain. Learn more about Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad. Read More »

Suicide Squad Dirty Dozen

The “men on a mission” movie is a concept that goes back decades, and which was honored most prominently in recent years by Quentin Tarantino in Inglourious Basterds. One of the most famous films in that zone is The Dirty Dozen, in which Lee Marvin played an OSS officer tasked with recruiting a bunch of criminals and ne’er-do-wells to undertake a D-Day prep mission that was almost certainly a suicide run.

The comic book team Suicide Squad takes inspiration from that cinematic idea, and David Ayer‘s upcoming film of the same name is certainly indebted to the concept as Amanda Waller (played by Viola Davis) recruits a crew of super-powered bad guys (and bad women) to undertake its own mission. At this point we don’t even know what that mission is, but that hasn’t stopped an editor from cutting officially-released footage together with old trailer audio to make a Suicide Squad Dirty Dozen mashup.  Read More »

Suicide Squad trailer

This past weekend was a big one for superhero movies. Not in the sense that any of them actually opened in theaters (alas, we’re still stuck with Fantastic Four), but in the sense that a whole bunch of next year’s superhero movies have just wrapped shooting.

But while the cast of Captain America: Civil War celebrated at a bar in Leipzig and the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse relieved Montreal of its entire supply of Red Bull, the Toronto-based cast of Suicide Squad indulged in a sweeter treat. Stars Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney stopped by a little girl’s lemonade stand to help her raise money for charity.  Read More »
