Thrill at the Suicide Squad Comic-Con trailer, co-starring the Joker’s orthodontia!

July 13, 2015

I can’t say that I’m overly interested in this upcoming Suicide Squad take — it seems odd to me to go to a villain team-up so early in your shared universe, when the heroes haven’t even been established yet. And this rather soporific sizzle reel isn’t exactly changing my mind. But whatever — it has its moments. Though Viola Davis is no substitute for CCH Pounder, she seems capable stepping into Amanda Waller’s plus-sized wardrobe, and Jared Leto’s new Joker, dreadful early reveal notwithstanding, seems to be, you know, crazy. This is a good thing.

Note: it appears that human charisma-vacuum Jai Courtney is playing Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth. Excelsior!

    I think a more subdued, restrained Joker would have been a lot scarier. No make-up, just sit there quietly, being quietly insane. Let the tension build.
    Hey, an alligator doesn’t make any noise or racket before he grabs a redneck and yanks him under the swamp water. He just sits there looking like a log. That’s why they are spooky.
    ….hey, it’s the circle of life.

    I’m not sure. I think the Joker is supposed to be completely mental and outrageous. The insanity of him is what makes the Joker sort of scary and serious at the same time.
