‘Suicide Squad’ Star Margot Robbie Got a Harley Quinn Cake for Her Birthday

Instagram

There’s a lot of things about David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie that seem pretty goofy, like Jared Leto’s method acting approach to playing his scuzzy street thug version of the Joker. But Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn looks downright delightful, and it appears that she had an equally delightful day on set for her birthday, as the cast and crew of the upcoming film gave her a very comic book appropriate birthday cake.

Remembering the Art and Craftsmanship of Ross Andru

AndruHeader

On this day in 1927, Rossolav Andruskevitch was born in Cleveland, Ohio. He showed an aptitude for art from an early age, and after attending the High School Of Music & Art in New York City, serving a stint in the Army, enrolling at the Cartoonists And Illustrators School (now known as SVA), and shortening his professional name to Ross Andru, he launched himself into a career in comics that would span six decades, and establish him as one of the industry's finest craftsmen.

‘Suicide Squad’ Set Footage Features Batman Car-Surfing on the Joker’s Ride

Batman Suicide Squad set
Pacific Coast News

At this point, we’re going to see the entirety of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad through footage filmed by civilians with iPhones before we even get to the first trailer. The latest batch of videos confirm a rumor that’s been circulating for months – yes, Ben Affleck’s Batman will play in a role in the film and from the looks of things, it will probably be far more than a “blink and you’ll miss him” cameo.

‘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.

‘Arrow’s ‘Big’ Harley Quinn Plans Were Shut Down by DC

Arrow Harley Quinn Plans DC
The CW

Over three seasons Arrow has been no stranger to the Suicide Squad (though perhaps less now with a movie in the works), but few could forget the excitement of the CW drama first teasing Harley Quinn with a brief cameo. That said, it seems Arrow may have had larger plans for Dr. Harleen Quinzel, ones that DC smashed with a giant sledgehammer.

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

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

What made the Ostrander/Yale Suicide Squad work and others not? John Ostrander and Kim Yale, along with Luke McDonnell, Geof Isherwood, Karl Kesel and other artists. They were creators who were absolutely at the top of their game over the course of Squad's 66-issue run, and you can't really get away from the fact that when Ostrander came back for stuff like Raise the Flag and the Blackest Night one-shot, those books were immediately right back in step with some of the best stories of the run. They were, hands down, one of the best creative teams in the history of superhero comics.

But at the same time, I don't think that's the whole story. When you get right down to it, Suicide Squad wasn't just a product of its time, it was the kind of comic that could only really happen in 1987.

Here’s What The Joker Looks Like as Designed by Movie FX Legend Rick Baker

DC

It’s been a couple of days since you saw new photos of Jared Leto’s version of Joker, which means you probably just now stopped laughing about it (until we see more pics from Suicide Squad, anyway). But here’s something to interest (and maybe frighten) you: special effects master Rick Baker has created his own rendering of Joker, one that is not only great, but kind of unnerving — you know, the way Joker should look. It’s too bad we might never see this version on the big screen.

On The Cheap: ‘Suicide Squad’ #58, The Issue Where John Ostrander, Kim Yale And Geof Isherwood Kill Grant Morrison

Suicde Squad #58, 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, and this week is no exception. There's amazing stuff in there focusing on the Justice League International, the amazingly underrated 90s Superboy run, and one of the greatest comics of all time, the late '80s Suicide Squad.

But with all those great books to choose from, you might need a little help narrowing it down. Like, let's say you can only buy one comic from the entire sale. If that's the case, then my recommendation would be that you jump on Suicide Squad #58. You know, the one where a werewolf kills Grant Morrison.
