He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

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.

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.
