I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

Lest Batman v Superman (and rearguing Man of Steel) eat up all of the DCCU discussion, Suicide Squad is currently filming, and a lot of people think it might end up setting the tone for the universe even more than Batman v Superman.

 

David Ayer (End of Watch, Training Day, Fury) is writing and directing.

 

It stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, and Jared Leto as The Joker.

 

Common, Scott Eastwood, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jim Parrack, Adam Beach, and Ike Barinholtz have been cast as yet to be revealed characters. 

 

Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor and Ben Affleck's Batman are rumored to cameo.

 

The first image of the Joker from the movie was released on the character's 75th anniversary. The internet has opinions.

Joker, in every incarnation, has been drastically different from previous ones. Caesar Romero's is different from Dick Sprang/Bill Finger's Joker, who was different from Bob Kane's, who is different from Burton and Nicholson's, who is different from Kevin Michael Richardson's, all of whom are worlds apart from Mark Hamill's quintessential iteration of the character.

 

And all of those are valid interpretations of the Joker, because he is so chaotic... Jared Leto is a talented, dedicated actor who is showing recently he can play a fairly broad range, so I am optimistic about his Joker. From just this one image, I sense the character will be a mix of Alex from A Clockwork Orange, Woody Harrelson from Natural Born Killers and maybe some Conrad Veidt for good measure.

 

What's interesting is that Task Force X has traditionally been made up of character who have been fairly well established; they often have history with each other. What's more, you have Boomerang, who's a Flash Rogue (will they maintain the Rogue Code for this one? Digger was always an outlier among the Rogues as far as following the rules is concerned); two Batman villains, and Deadshot, who has run up against literally the entire Justice League. When will this take place in the newly aligned DCCU? I think it might be neat to have some jumping around in the timeline as the movies are released. This could take place after the JLA has been established for a while... just a thought.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

The timeline question is a good one. I don't think it's been plainly stated yet when this takes place in relation to Batman v Superman.

Not yet. I have to assume cast pictures will start trickling out as we get closer to SDCC since they're filming already.

Yeah, if this is similar to new 52, which it appears to be, Batman has already been a crimefighter for some time. So it makes sense that there is already a rogues gallery out there for other heroes that just aren't public yet.

Some of those announced actors are heavily rumored to be playing specific characters. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is almost certainly playing Killer Croc, and Scott Eastwood is widely believed to be playing Steve Trevor.

That's exactly where I am with it. The other tattoos and affectations don't bother me at all. The Joker reappropriating aspects of the trashier corners of current culture (the grill, the pinky ring, the dumb Hot Topic tattoos) seems like something he would think is funny.

Exactly. I also like the parody of the "Tear drop" tattoo in a stylized J. That's very much Joker-ish.

It speaks volumes that it took this for the movie to actually get a topic here...

 

I'm still annoyed that they killed off Arrow's Deathshot because of Will Smith.

 

Joker... is weird. It's like Marilyn Manson cosplaying as the Joker. Too many weird tatoos, too.

That said, Margot Robbie will be an awesome Harley.

He doesn't look like The Joker.  He looks like a Joker copycat.  Some guy who's stealing the Joker's iconography and gimmickry.  I don't care for it, but I'm still willing to give the movie a shot.  Hopefully his acting will win me over.

I'm fairly sure he's the real Joker, but if one were to assume this is a Batman who's been around for 20 or so years, then this is presumably a Joker who's been active just as long, and has maybe been in and out of prison several times (which could account for some of the affectations). It could be an interesting angle if, in this version, he actually went to some sort of supermax prison, rather than just Arkham. Can you imagine the kind of cult that would be built up around the Joker if he were in the general population of a maximum security prison full of murderers and drug kingpins?

 

(Just to clarify, I have no plot information that backs up any of that, I'm just thinking out loud.)

I'm kind of hoping all those fake teeth in front came about because Batman punches him really really hard.

 

Bonus points if you actually flash back to the punch that knocked most of em out.

Yeah, a lot of people have theorized that's why he's wearing those. Batman's been punching him in the face for 20 years and it took its toll.

 

(Also, jesus, Jared Leto is 43 and Ben Affleck is 42. That is not god damn fair.)

Also, this is Joker shirtless. The majority of the tattoos will be covered I would assume.

 

Even if they weren't, this is hardly the first reimagination of the Clown Prince of Crime. He honestly looks like a Hollywood-ized version of the Joker from The Batman.
