Batman V Superman is soon going to hit theaters, heralding the greatest DC Movie Universe crossover ever. While superhero nerds across the world wait for the Brave And the Bold to make their very first cinematic debut, it’s important to remember about the JLA movie that never was, the brain-child of Mad Max‘s daddy, George Miller…

Or perhaps a Moonie, maybe even a preacher on TV! Whatever your opinion might be on Suicide Squad‘s new Joker (portrayed by Jared Leto), the supervillain has made an impression on everyone who’s watched the trailers or even slightly kept up with the hype surrounding DC‘s upcoming all-supervillain movie.

Last week was the premiere of the newest CW show, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and a lot was packed into the one hour time slot.  We met the titular “legends”, their leader, and their foe.  All were familiar faces to those who have been watching The Flash and Arrow, except for Captain Rip Hunter, the leader of the motley crew.  The premise of the show was introduced as well, that of a band of time jumping maybe-heroes out to save the world from certain destruction at the hands of the nefarious Vandal Savage.

Dads, am I right? Sometimes they are awkward or they don’t get the stuff you’re into. Other times, they crack awful puns or get you grounded on trumped up charges, but they always make it worth your while. Like for example when they go out of their way to get you that one thing you really, really want or when they stick by you even when you have come up with the awful idea of pursuing an acting (or worse yet, a writing) career.

In Harley Quinn Smith‘s case, her payout came when her dad (nerd-culture legend Kevin Smith) handed her one of the most important movie memorabilia of her life…
