The star of The CW’s superhero television series Arrow, Stephen Amell, is a a great guy who is constantly doing lovely things for his fan. Even when he spent several months feuding with – and eventually wrestling with –  WWE superstar Stardust did he manage to do something to make him a real life hero.

Comic book super hero The Vision made his cinematic debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Being thrown into the mix among characters already established across multiple films had made his introduction a challenging sell. Director Joss Whedon gave him a particularly “worthy” moment that instantly pushed the character over, cementing his place among the rest of The Avengers. What made him worthy?

Hearing cast members praise the performances of their co-stars is trivial and biased. An actor is not gonna throw another actor under the bus and say “yeah… he/she sucks”.

We know this, yet, when it comes to comic book movies we can’t help but buy into hype on how our favorites superheroes are being portrayed. Particularly, if that up talk has anything to do with the latest cinematic incarnation of The Joker.

So here we are, gleaming over the good word of Suicide Squad‘s Margot Robbie as she praises the performance of her co-star Jared Leto; who’s playing a dramatically different take on the crown prince of crime. (more…)
