Suicide Squad

Harley Quinn Brings Her Brand of Mayhem to Prime 1 Studio’s DC Comics Statue Series

Though Suicide Squad itself may not linger on many "Best of" lists, Margot Robbie's take on the character has drawn enough acclaim to earn her a new movie, and possibly the brightest future of any villain in the DC Cinematic Universe. Now that we know the cinematic version of Harley Quinn isn't going anywhere any time soon, we can settle in for even more merchandise based on the character as portrayed by Robbie. That goes double for merchandise that won't be out for a full calendar year, like Prime 1 Studio's new Harley Quinn 1:4 scale statue.

DC Movie Producer’s Comments Illustrate What’s Wrong With the ‘Justice League’ Universe

Justice League
Warner Bros.

Not long ago, we published a list of suggestions for how Warner Bros. could fix some of the issues with the DC Extended Universe. To date, the studio has delivered three superhero blockbusters — all of which were massively budgeted and hugely successful at the box office, sure, but they could have performed even better had they been genuinely good films. Although recent comments from WB execs and Ben Affleck imply that the studio has learned a few lessons from its mistakes, new comments from a top DC movies producer prove otherwise.

WB Montreal’s Suicide Squad Video Game Likely Isn’t Escaping Belle Reve After All

For the past few years, rumors about what DC Comics property WB Montreal was working on developing a game around have swirled. The Suicide Squad was an early candidate, as were Superman and the Justice League, but nothing had ever materialized from any of those potential titles in the years since WB Montreal wrapped production on Batman: Arkham Origins. Now, according to a new report, it's sounding like we haven't heard much about the Suicide Squad game because it's been canceled all together.

This Is A Ramones Song: Rob Williams On What Makes ‘Suicide Squad’ Tick [Interview]

SSQUAD_8_dylux-000

Rob Williams and Jim Lee's Suicide Squad is a perfect example of what DC Comics aimed to do with its Rebirth shake-up. It builds on what made the property popular back in the days of John Ostrander, Kim Yale and Luke McDonnell while embracing the changes that have happened in the decades since, and the end result is a wonderful fusion of everything great about the property.

With Suicide Squad #8 out this week, and the Justice League vs Suicide Squad event on the horizon, ComicsAlliance chatted with Williams about his approach to the individual characters, and the punk rock influence at the heart of the title.

DCHB-Featured

While DC Comics has had a great 2016 largely thanks to its DC Rebirth initiative, the success of its updated Hanna-Barbera titles such as Future Quest and The Flintstones has been one of the most surprising hits of the year. Next year, DC is doubling down on its classic cartoon characters by teaming them up with some of the most iconic heroes in the DC Universe in a number of special annuals set for release in March.

‘Suicide Squad’ Concept Art Proves That Jared Leto’s Joker Could’ve Been Way Worse

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Jared Leto’s gritty ’n grilled take on the Clown Prince of Crime was easily the most controversial part of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Early photos of Leto’s tatted-up Joker drew heavy criticism from fans and launched a million jokes on social media, where he was compared to everything from a Juggalo to a Hot Topic mascot — and that was before we found out about his wacky on-set “method acting” antics, which permanently cemented his status as a ridiculous human being. But if you thought that version of the Joker was obnoxious, boy do we have some concept art for you.

Go Behind the Scenes with Joker and Harley Quinn in This ‘Suicide Squad’ Featurette

Suicide Squad Jared Leto Margot Robbie
Warner Bros.

Listen, impressionable young men and women of the world, because this is important: you should not watch Suicide Squad and think that the Joker and Harley Quinn represent any kind of reasonable #RelationshipGoal. This is an abusive and possessive relationship, start to finish, and while there may be a more consensual love story scattered among the footage on the cutting room floor, we won’t know until we see it. This is a pretty important disclaimer to throw out there before we talk about this footage

There Are Whole Seconds of New Joker Footage in This ‘Suicide Squad’ TV Spot

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Look, all things being equal, I really didn’t mind Jared Leto’s take on the Joker in Suicide Squad. Yes, the constant news items about what latest “crazy” thing he did to get in character were pretty annoying, and yes, the number of people who seem to think that Joker and Harley Quinn’s relationship is something to emulate is downright disturbing, but Leto seemed like a perfect fit for the gloomy and angst-ridden universe that Warner Bros. has created for its DC Comics characters. At another studio, he’d be woefully out of place. In this one? He’s fine.

The ComicsAlliance Halloween Costume Spooktacular 2016

Untitled-2

After a month of anticipation, "Treehouse of Horror" binges, and spooky Twitter names, Halloween is finally upon us. This special day means so much to so many people, and one of the greatest joys it gives us is licensed costumes based on comic book properties. Some of them are incredibly detailed and accurate to the source material, some of them are hilariously bad, and some, somehow, manage to be both.

We've rounded up some of the best comics-themed Halloween costumes from this year to provide you with some last minute inspiration for the big night.
