Ask Chris #241: The Suicide Squad, Then And Now

Suicide Squad, Then And Now

What made the John Ostrander/Kim Yale run on Suicide Squad the best version of that series? It was a comic that could only have happened in 1987.

Now that Universal is rebooting their classic monsters franchises with a new expanded universe plan, 20th Century Fox wants to get in on a little of that action with a similarly-flavored reboot of their own: The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, based on Alan Moore’s graphic novel, which features various characters from classic works of literature by authors like Bram Stoker, Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain and more.

‘Deadpool’ Star Ryan Reynolds Teases Possible Wolverine Cameo

20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox

Last time Deadpool and Wolverine got together on the big screen, things didn’t turn out so great. The less said about that, the better. But the new Deadpool solo movie looks like it’s finally going to do the character justice, and if Ryan Reynolds gets his way, we’ll also get a little added bonus to help make up for that whole X-Men Origins: Wolverine thing. Oh, sorry, I said we weren’t going to talk about that.

The latest photo posted to Bryan Singer’s Instagram account doesn’t show you a whole lot, but it does tell you quite a bit. Not only will we be seeing Apocalypse in the next X-Men outing, but we’ll be getting another new character from the comic books as well — one who hasn’t appeared in any previous X-Men film: Caliban.

On The Cheap: Kyle Baker’s ‘Plastic Man’

Plastic Man, DC Comics

Over the past few weeks, Comixology has done a pretty amazing job of staying on top of DC's Convergence event with a string of sales based on the different eras that were brought into Bottleworld to fight it out. This week marks the end of Convergence and, along with it, the end of this particular set of sales, but they've decided to go out with a bang. In addition to some classic Bronze Age Justice League and fun, continuity-bending Booster Gold, they're shining the spotlight onto one of the greatest --- and most underrated --- DC books of the 21st Century: Kyle Baker's Plastic Man.

DC Collectibles Pencils Exclusive Batman, Krypto Plush Into SDCC Plans

DC Comics

With just a hair over a six weeks to go until San Diego Comic-Con, companies have been slowly dropping hints about what to expect in the way of exclusive merchandise at this year's show. As expected, DC Collectibles will have some choice items up for grabs at the event.

Previous SDCCs have seen a fairly diverse line-up from DC Collectibles, but in 2014 the company really only had a limited Batman: Arkham City Harley Quinn statue. Fortunately, the merchandise side of the DC Comics brand is offering two unique collectibles this year that'll be a tiny bit more affordable... provided you can get one at the show itself.

Bizarro Back Issues: Malibu’s Ultraviolent ‘Street Fighter’ Comic (1992)

Street Fighter, Malibu Comics

I've never been good at playing fighting games, but when I was growing up, there were few things in this world I loved more than Street Fighter. I think I've mentioned this before, but my first memory of actually trying to make a comic was when I was ten years old and I drew the junkyard fight scene from Batman #425 and replaced the bad guys with Blanka and Dhalsim, and really, you can draw a pretty straight line from that to where I am today. I've even written a tiny little bit of Street Fighter comics myself, and I am still very much a person who thinks karate guys throwing fireballs at each other is the highest form of art.

Of course, they didn't exactly make it easy for us to like Street Fighter back then. The games were great, sure, but if you wanted a little more story about it on this side of the Pacific, your options were pretty slim. There was the movie in 1994, and the cartoon that was somehow a sequel to it, but if you wanted to see those characters in comics, you had only one choice: Malibu's Street Fighter --- the comic so legendarily rough that it was canceled after three issues with an apology from the publisher.

Channing Tatum Says ‘Gambit’ Will Be an Unconventional Origin Story

Channing Tatum Gambit
Sony Pictures/Marvel

Yes, Channing Tatum is still planning to make that Gambit movie. He just needs a finished screenplay. And a director. And an angle that helps us forget that Gambit is one of the lamest X-Men to ever achieve inexplicable popularity. (Note: This is not the position of the editor of ComicsAlliance. Gambit is awesome.) Casting the intensely likable and charismatic Tatum goes a long away toward achieving that last goal, and in a new interview, the Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street star revealed that the first draft of the script has been turned in ... and that the movie will be an origin story, albeit one that won’t play by the normal superhero movie rules.

Samsung’s Iron Man Galaxy S6 Edge is Almost as Limited as One of Tony’s Suits

Samsung
Samsung

After not so subtly teasing a special variant edition of its new Galaxy S6 Edge for the past week, Samsung has formally unveiled the Iron Man edition of the new smartphone. As part of a brand partnership with Marvel, Samsung has already released a handful of Avengers themed goods like phone cases for the Galaxy S6 and a wireless charger that looks like Captain America's shield. All of those goods however, pale in comparison to a phone designed to put Iron Man right in your pocket. Sort of.

‘Suicide Squad’ Latest: The Batmobile Appears on the Streets of Toronto

Suicide Squad-feat

Toronto gets turned into a film set on a semi-regular basis. It's no Los Angeles, but it sometimes plays her --- or any other North American city --- on the big screen. Not long after I first moved to the city, there was fake snow on the ground for the Scott Pilgrim movie (a rare case of Toronto playing Toronto). The street where I live is sometimes lined with yellow New York cabs, most recently for Kick-Ass 2, and the next spooky Guillermo Del Toro may be lurking around any corner at any time.

Right now, the city is overrun by the Suicide Squad movie, as demonstrated by our video and photos of Ben Affleck's heavy duty industrial Batmobile chasing down the brightly-colored Jokermobile during last night's shoot.
