James Gunn is making his own version of The Suicide Squad coming out this August and while we kind of revere him because of his work on Guardians of the Galaxy it seems that movie may have been a bit of a one-hit wonder.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 isn’t nearly as good as the first movie because it features way too much hollering and too many dumb jokes that don’t really land that well. Now, he’s just released the trailer for The Suicide Squad and it just…didn’t make me happy. Take a look.
I understand that the whole idea of the Suicide Squad is wackiness and insanity but this just feels…a bit much. The jokes weren’t funny, just crude and gross. The characters don’t look that likable, if I’m being honest. And I just wasn’t impressed. The only positive thing I have to say about the trailer is that it didn’t show too much.
I think the only thing that’s making me want to see this movie is Harley Quinn who I think is such a fun character, and maybe the Polka-Dot Man, but besides that it’s pretty meh.
What did you think about the trailer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
We’re less than two weeks away from the Super Bowl and that’s exciting for me. Not only do we get to see Tom Brady’s history-making team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in a Super Bowl alongside the up-and-coming new dynasty called the Kansas City Chiefs led by the super impressive Patrick Mahomes but we’re also getting a new swath of Super Bowl commercials.
Super Bowl commercials are some of my favorite things to see all year and among Super Bowl commercials are exciting new trailers of highly-anticipated movies. Now, of course, this year is a bit different than the average year.
Okay, there is no doubt that the genius behind the Guardians of the Guardians of the Galaxy is making this film. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited with the DC Extended Universe than by what I’ve seen with The Suicide Squad.
Just a few minutes ago we got our first look at all of the characters in The Suicide Squad as well as a cryptic but very encouraging behind-the-scenes sneak peek at the film. It. Was. Epic! But most of all, the roll-call for these characters was what absolutely blew my mind. Take a look.
Undoubtedly, my favorite characters, just by their designs, are:
From top left to bottom right: Pete Davidson is Black Guard and I’m here for it, Idris Elba is Bloodsport (am I the only one who looks like the DC Comics version of his character in Hobbs and Shaw), Margot Robbie returns as Harley freaking Quinn and she has quite the style revamp, Michael Rooker looks so cool as Savant, and Joel Kinnaman returns as Colonel Rick Flagg.
I’m so ready to see what James Gunn has up his sleeve for these characters and I think it’s going to be amazing.
Today is a special day for pop culture fans and because of that, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the online convention and its surprises live later on today so, if you’re looking for my next trailer and chapter in Captain America: Secret War those will resume tomorrow.
I’m so excited to see what’s up with Wonder Woman 1984, The Batman, The Suicide Squad, and #TheSnyderCut of Justice League. Oh, and we can’t forget Black Adam. I am so ready!
The DC Fandome will be taking place in twelve days and the free online virtual event will feature sneak peeks at all of the upcoming DC Comics movies and several television shows. One such movie is The Suicide Squad and before we get whatever sneak peek we’ll be getting by James Gunn on the highly-anticipated reboot of Suicide Squad let’s take at the new and improved cast. Enjoy!
When I watched Suicide Squad for the first time last year I was immediately struck with the blaring similarities between this anti-hero team and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Like The Guardians of the Galaxy, the Suicide Squad was a bunch of misfits who were tasked with saving the world, but unlike Guardians of the Galaxy, which was helmed by James Gunn’s genius, Suicide Squad was a hot mess of a storyline laced with potential.
When Disney briefly released James Gunn after several inappropriate tweets were unearthed from Gunn’s past Warner Bros. quickly jumped on the opportunity for James Gunn to take over the Suicide Squad sequel. On Friday, James Gunn revealed the new and improved cast for what is now being called The Suicide Squad and of course, I’m here to share the list with you. Enjoy!
