We are only two months away from the release of DC Films/Warner Bros. feature ‘Suicide Squad.’ As fans wait in anticipation, the studio has been teasing the film through the various trailers they have released. As the debut nears, expect more promotional campaigns to hype up the opening. The most recent came in the form of a promotion with SPLAT hair dye, a company known for their wildly outrageous dye colors. As an added bonus with your hair coloring, a mini comic prequel was included entitled “Suicide Blonde” which features the backstory of The Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley Quinn’s (Margot Robbie) relationship.

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have a lot of faith in their upcoming film Suicide Squad. After the mixed reactions Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice received, they really don’t have any other choice. If the studio wants to show they are able to compete against the superhero juggernaut that is Disney/Marvel Studios, then this August’s release has to be successful at the box office. Those on the outside may think Warner Bros. is premature in planning a DC Extended Universe (DCEU) consisting of more films, but what it truly reveals about the studio is that they haven’t given up. They will continue to move forward as if Suicide Squad and subsequent releases are hits at the theaters. With that being said it should come as no surprise that rumors are circulating that they intend on creating more solo spinoffs out of this cadre of criminals. So exactly who gets the spotlight in their own feature? (more…)
David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad hasn’t even hit the big screen yet and Warner Bros. is doubling down on Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn being popular enough to spin-off into another DC superhero movie. Word is that it won’t be the old school solo superhero movie, but more the latest trend, a collection of heroes and villains like Captain America: Civil War. Not only will Robbie star, but she’s will also produce. (more…)
While it does little to heal the wounds such conflicts can inflict (we shall all carry the scars of AvP for a long long time,) the March 2016 offering from Loot Crate is a solid one, filled with the usual metric tonne (sorry, there is the Canadian-ness coming out again) of exclusives we’ve grown to expect and love from the world’s leading subscription box service. Check out our video review below (more…)
Since her first appearance in the legendary Batman: The Animated Series, the clown lady-in-waiting of crime has become a staple among the Caped Crusader’s considerable villains roster. When her first proper silver screen appearance on the latest Suicide Squad film was announced however, many of her avid fans expected her to rock her signature Court Jester look or to at least settle for the newer, darker goth-pinup girl with issues. Margot Robbie apparently decided to bring this issue to a close with her latest statement on the villain’s costume choice…
Tattoos. Sometimes they are small, inside jokes about one’s character. Other times, they are simple attention-grabbers or a telltale sign that you have made some poor life decision or another. If you have picked Margot Robbie as your designated tattoo artist, it’s probably the latter, as proven by the latest mess up in the aftermath of their wrapping the Suicide Squad movie production…
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. But how is the actor keeping up with the flamboyant psychopath that is Batman‘s archnemesis?
According to director David Ayer, better than expected apparently…
If you want to play something strange, who you gonna call? Well, if you’re playing LEGO Dimensions, pretty much anyone you want it seems. Fancy a batshit mashup with Doctors Who, Brown and Venkman? Sure! While you’re at it, why not throw in Doctor Harleen Frances Quinzel, MD aka Harley Quinn, for good measure? You may as well drop Marty McFly and The Joker in the street to look on as well.

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…
