Truthfully, I’ve been wrecking my brain as to what collectibles I want to get of the SUICIDE SQUAD characters - heck, I like the movie and want to somehow keep the entire squad - with Hot Toys’ 1/6th out of my financial reach, and the Mattel figures are not much cheaper off, I’d thought to get busy with the Cosbaby versions … but now, NOW I KNOW WHAT I WANT! Exept for this nagging feeling the OG Harley Quinn ReAction figure might end up being someone’s “Exclusive Edition” dammit….

#Batman in the new “Tactical Batsuit” for #JusticeLeague


Director Zak Snyder “celebrates” the last day of filming Ben Affleck as “Batman” in the upcoming Justice League movie, to show the new “Tactical Batsuit”!

Does it remind you of Nite Owl in his Watchmen? Or have we seen enough of a “tactical” ala Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy? Doesn’t matter really, it only works as a new action figure / toy … sorry, I cannot help but think this way- apologies to the costume designers and art department folks who work in this for a living :p

Justice League cast endorses Rezpect Our Water


Cast members from the Justice League have come together to support the youth of Standing Rock in their campaign to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. You can join them by signing at: change.org/RezpectOurWater.

The situation in question is introduced in the video below. And while the fictional “Justice League” fights against malicious invaders and injustice, I wonder what they might do against “big money”?

"Only hours after lawyers representing the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe filed evidence in federal court documenting how some of the Dakota Access pipeline’s proposed route would go through a sacred burial site, the company unexpectedly began working on that very site. As bulldozers cleared earth, hundreds of Native Americans from many different tribes rushed onto the construction site to protect the sacred site. In response, the company’s security forces attacked the Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray. Now the tribe’s lawyer is requesting an emergency temporary restraining order to halt construction on this area of the pipeline. For more, we speak with Jan Hasselman, staff attorney with Earthjustice, who is representing the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe at today’s hearing in federal court. And we speak with Dave Archambault, the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe." democracynow.org)

#SUICIDESQUAD VFX by Buddha Jones


Not too long ago, production company “Buddha Jones” posted a couple of videos for their work on DC x Warner Bros’ SUICIDE SQUAD - showcasing the animation work / VFX and MOE for the opening sequence, character profiles and closing credits. I was lucky enough to have caught the clips (and screenshot some images) before they were both pulled off Vimeo.

Catch the video above for the VFX (before this gets pulled) and enjoy the memories of these sequences, before the DVD/Blu-ray comes out :)

Deathstroke for #TheBatman?


First he teases fans with THIS video clip showcasing a character dressed as mercenary / assassin “Deathstroke” (of course it’s a test footage to see the costume :p), then comes word that Deathstroke would indeed be the main villain for Ben Affleck-directed “The Batman” stand alone film. And is actor Joe Manganiello up for the role of “Slade Wilson”?

Why would Deathstroke be in “Justice League”? Unless JL is going against the “Injustice League” (would be awesome tho), or Deathstroke could a throwaway character in a montage where the JL-members face against multiple super-villains. What do you folks think? How would you prefer Deathstroke to be depicted as on the silver screens?

So many questions. No official announcements from Warner Bros. Marketing succeeds in getting the internets excited. BAM!

BTW: Everybody credits Manganiello for his role in “Magic Mike”, but I’d rather remember him as “Grinder” in Schwarzenegger’s “Sabotage” - with his imposing physique, I’d be more than overjoyed to see him in action against the Dark Knight Detective on-sceen!

HARLEY QUINN-ccentric Songs from #SuicideSquad


“You Don’t Own Me” by Grace featuring G-Eazy (not official MV tho) - begins this particular post featuring music videos with Suicide Squad’s HARLEY QUINN front—n-center! Critics can slam the movie for all it's worth, but the presence and impact of Harley cannot be denied, especially for THIS generation of folks, IMHO.

In an age where a murdering mercenaries like "Deadpool" gets the thumbs-up from impressionable viewers, characters like Harley might well prove to be a "heroine" to many a folks grappling with similar toxic relationships and reactions to the real world, so do not take for granted the imagery, and even songs related to her ... but of course I sound like a fossil from the previous generation (twice removed), innit?

BACK TO THE TUNES!

From Avril Lavigne comes “Bad Girl” (MV below), featuring Marilyn Manson - which to me a quite a grab for the headlines, as they are titans from an earlier generation, and inserted to perhaps pacify said generation? LOL




The MV directly featured above is “Gangsta” - performed by Kehlani - with the track heard in the sequence where “Harleen Quinzel” (pre-“Harley Quinn”) jumps into the chemical vat, and The Joker jumping in after her (bootleg footage feature below). "Inane" dialog to most adults, no doubt... but mayhap emotionally meaningful to the "now"?

I am not here to judge. I don't need to judge. :)



J: Question. Would you die for me?
H: Yes.
J: That's too easy. Would you... would you live for me? Hmm?
H: Yes.
J: Careful. Do not say this oath thoughtlessly. Desire becomes surrender, surrender becomes power.
J: You want this?
H: I do.
J: Say it. Say it. SAY IT!
J: Pretty (x7) please.
H: Please.
J: Aww god you're so GOOD.
