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 »

Does Superman Appear in ‘Suicide Squad’?

Superman in Suicide Squad

Even before the Comic-Con trailer for Suicide Squad officially made it online, spy photos from the Warner Bros. set had confirmed that Ben Affleck will appear in the DC Comics cinematic universe film as Batman. It only makes sense, as his arch nemesis, The Joker (Jared Leto) is a primary character in the movie.

However, what about his future opponent, The Man of Steel? Since Superman and Batman will soon come to blows in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, it stands to reason that Superman could get involved with what happens in Suicide Squad. Well, someone finally asked Henry Cavill about whether or not we’ll see Superman in Suicide Squad. So what did he say? Read More »

Suicide Squad Trailer

Forget the Avengers, the Justice League, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. Cinema’s most tight-knit superpowered crew is the cast of Suicide Squad, as evidenced by the fact that the actors have elected to give each other matching “SKWAD” tattoos. Not get matching tattoos, like from a tattoo parlor — actually give them to each other.
