Batman Suicide Squad – What to Expect from the Joker?

In Batman: Suicide Squad, as a villain personality, Joker has been a bad guy deep-seated in secret for many decades, and this is no different for the character showing in the new movie to be produced this year. Even if we have known for some time that Jared Leto will be in the new big role of the Clown Prince of Crime, there has been no formal information on his exact part in the movie.

Several reviews have mentioned he is not a participant of the Squad itself, but the type of maneuvers he is capable of is mostly still a secret. Luckily, we now have new details about how this Joker will act with Jared Leto behind its white mask, even if some hardcore fans were not too thrilled about the casting choice in general.

Earlier nowadays, the media published new information on what the spectators will see in Suicide Squad, such as the relation with the other bad guy Hugo Strange. A few of this stuff gets back to the villain’s earliest origins, while others will adjust to famous stages from the history, but Jared Leto puts together the image of a character like we have never seen before in live-action movies. Here is what we can expect from this Joker, with Leto playing a great villain in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

It is Based on the Dark Knight Series

It is well known right now that Ben Affleck’s Batman is partly based off the Dark Knight character, particularly his mature age and Bat-suit. The traditional 1986 series will also be inspiring for Jared Leto’s Joker, especially regarding his look. Reviews declare that Jared is leaner and scarred, but the clothes have wide shoulders. In the initial scenario, Joker has maintained a catatonic look for many years, and only when Batman reappeared he became aware of his evil side and started another killing spree.

It does not seem like his mad part will be tailored for Suicide Squad, but when or if he runs away, perhaps he will be dressed in the white-colored and violet fit he worn in the first movie and cartoon animations.

He Is Fit, not Skinny

So, he will not be as muscular as when he ingested Bane’s anabolic steroid in Arkham Asylum. However, this version of the Joker will surely be with muscles rather than skinny. During his jail time, he has been working out seriously, particularly before getting out. This tells us why Leto has gained a significant amount of muscle mass, in order to fit the role better

Even if Joker has been proved to be a good fighter in the many versions of the comics, his physique portrayed in the comic books differs over time, from being incredibly slimmer to a little bit larger in stature. The Joker is a criminal genius already, but if he has been training intensely in jail, this will make him much more risky to fight with. Even if he does not have his famous arsenal of weaponry, he still could destroy any person who gets in the way without problem.

Joker’s Skin is Actually Bleached, not Caked in Makeup


Before we saw Joker in the theaters, when Christopher Nolan made the decision to have the villain (the late Heath Ledger) use tons of make up to create the famous scary look. Not now, Suicide Squad is returning to the traditional bleached skin, a look fitting Jared Leto’s finer facial features and the penchant for cosmetics. The Joker probably has some of the most acclaimed super villain roots. While committing illegal activities at a substance manufacturer, the guy who will become Joker got into battle with Batman and got thrown into a massive vat of dangerous substances.

These elements bleached his skin into a white shade, colored his hair green and made his lips dark red, taking whatever peace of sane mind he had left and made him the Joker. Heath Ledger’s character obviously looked as scary as possible, but it is an excellent shift of tables to see them doing the Joker’s look in the new movie in the same way it was made Jack Nicholson character in the 1989 famous movie.

He has Murdered Batman’s Sidekick

One of Joker’s most callous things in the comic strips was the ruthless killing of Jason Todd, Batman’s second Robin. Surprisingly, that will be the same situation in the new movie. Moreover to the movie relating to his previous criminal acts, Suicide Squad also says that this version of Joker murdered one of Batman’s sidekicks. The content does not reveal which particular Robin was killed, but if these films want to use Dick Grayson in the role of Nightwing, then Jason is the most likely option.

When Dark Knight Returns was released, these people were the only two sidekicks. Perhaps, following the story line in the comics, this Batman does not want to have another partner after Joker killed Jason, but later chooses to agree to let another person as new Robin, or even a Batgirl instead.

Joker is a Good Match for Amanda Waller

This is a little detail, but the reviews say that Suicide Squad’ supervisor Amanda Waller will interrogate the Joker during the movie. A gossip from a few months ago mentioned that Joker is introduced into the Belle Reve jail compound by Waller, in order for her to use him and maintain Harley Quinn under control. While he is there, it appears that like Waller might also make him responsible for any other illegal action he is engaged in.

The Joker, by definition, is not often supportive with his opponents, be it the Batman or govt authorities, so it is difficult to think about him offering help to Waller in every way. Nevertheless, one fact is certain: he has a strategy, and if the rumors are real, it will result in a super villain getting out of prison. The officials should have known better than to build any kind of connection with this murderous clown.

Avengers 2 Age of Ultron – Clash of Superheroes

The Avengers 2 Age of Ultron is one of the most committed movie projects put together by a movie company, and maybe the best thing about it is the way every situation was created within, being constantly on a developing path and aiming towards something larger and better. With each new scene, we understand more and more about the stories behind the scenario and we always remain with a mix of fulfillment and looking for more.

Because of the complex information in the comic books surrounding the Marvel universe, everything is possible, and it is a fun activity to go in depth about the effects on each character’s perspective, conversion and unexpected shifting as they advance in Marvel Studios’ second major milestone movie: The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

This super smash cinema hit is now almost here, since Phase Two movies like Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier have all discovered their specific methods into cinemas over the last several years. Obviously, these all have a large effect on the big upcoming of the MCU, and what do we know until now and how will it influence Avengers 2? Which is the newest twist with all the major figures involved? Follow it below as we crack the secret of every character.

Captain America

From all the movies we have watched in Phase Two, it is probably Captain America: The Winter Soldier the one which had by far the greatest effect on the Marvel Universe. Not only had the eponymous character the nightmare to deal with a scary event from his past, taking the form of Winter Soldier, but also S.H.I.E.L.D. became an extremely endangered organization that was conquered by HYDRA, and was consequently damaged by our characters.

The film left Cap with not only an upcoming dilemma he is unsure about, but also being incapable to believe in anyone around him. Maybe his only solution is his other super allies in the Avengers team. Things will become a lot more difficult for The First Avenger while the MCU comes on. We already know that he will battle Tony Stark in the next Captain America movie. Will the separation begin to show in Age of Ultron? Keep an eye on this increasing problem.

Iron Man

Tony Stark had some exciting changes at the ending of Iron Man 3, which places him in a top position in Avengers 2. This billionaire playboy and philanthropist was proven not only to look for a different course of his adventures without being dressed in the metal suits, but also he had removed the arc reactor from his chest – indicating that he was done with the super powered way of life.

Following the demise of S.H.I.E.L.D., however, he and Stark Industries joined into the industry of personal international security, and while it can seem like a wise decision, this also results in the development of a powerful super villain: Ultron. We also now found out that Tony will be a character of Captain America 3, and this will trigger the Civil War. First, we need to see his role at the ending of Age of Ultron.



Similar to the way in which Iron Man 3 increased Iron Man’s part in the Marvel Universe, in Thor: The Dark World placed its main character in a great position right before the ending of the film. The final scenes presented the God of Thunder refusing the throne of Asgard and coming back to Earth in order to be with his love.

This implies that when The Avengers will have to reassemble, Thor will not even have to go through the wormhole that link the worlds to join the team – he only has to swing the hammer and fly to the Avengers’ headquarter in Manhattan. The viewers knows that the God of Thunder left Asgard only to be ruled by his evil brother Loki, but he actually will not realize it until the clash in Thor 3.



The Avengers is an amazing team movie in that it offers a chance to just all of its characters, however if there was a single hero who was given a brief appearance in the movie it was Hawkeye. The fans have publicly said how frustrated they were with his part in the series, being most of time a small character under Loki’s influence. Nevertheless, the writers and directors have guaranteed a bigger role for Hawkeye in the follow up movie.

It has been stated many times that he will have an extended segment in The Avengers: The Age of Ultron and interacting a lot more with the other team members. The movie will also hopefully tell us exactly where he was while the defeat of S.H.I.E.L.D. during Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Even if Bruce Banner/Hulk did not have his own single film in Phase Two – while being the stand apart character of The Avengers – he is returning in a big movie in 2015. The sources have stated that he will play an extended part in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, though the actual details as to what this indicates right now are unidentified. As proven in the post-credits scene of Iron Man 3, he has gotten near Tony Stark, and it has been shown that the two technology pals will be returning together and testing stuff at the begin of Age of Ultron.

Joss Whedon

joss whedon

He is the only non-fictional person/character who has his own paragraph on the list, but this should just show how essential he is to the success of the Marvel Universe movies and for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. In Aug 2012 it was stated that the writer/director had agreed on a three-year contract with Marvel Studios to not only persuade him to both create and film a follow up to his original successful movie, but to act as a leading person for what has been known as Phase Two. Unfortunately, this indicates that it will be the last Avengers film under his guide, as it has been declared that The Avengers: Infinity War’s production will be conducted by other directors, probably the filmmakers responsible for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Top 10 Scary Short Movies

Our list of top 10 scary short movies  represents the best of the best when it comes to creepy sensations over just a few minutes of online video streaming.

10. Blinky

The short movie Blinky, created by Irish movie writer and director Ruairi Robinson, is taking place in our not-so-distant future, when automatic family assistants are everywhere.


The film is probably a comment on the versatility of the brilliant and emotional human thoughts, from the viewpoint of a robot’s mindset. So, a truly synthetic intellect, capable of emotional or social connections, can be suffering from emotional and physical stress as a person would be.

9. Thresher


“Thresher” is quite a scary thriller made for the Guillermo Del Toro & Legendary Pictures’ “House of Horrors” contest. The movie follows the challenges of a man in a chained up space. He discovers the combination of a lock not knowing what is on the other side, and time is running out.

8. Unwind


Using only a small budget, this movie was shot in just one room with filming techniques that are at the claustrophobia edge. Actually, the girl’s eyes are the most interesting part of the film, but the motion of the camera insists of them, while the bone saws and ripping skin can haunt you long time after you have finished it.

7. The Gift


Design and filming are The Gift’s most powerful traits; from its Half-Life-esque security officers to the snootiest robots, it is obvious that this short movie has plenty of style to spare. Nevertheless, what is most impressive there is the quantity of atmosphere building that occurs in such a short period, creating energy and effort.

6. Vacuity


Even if it has its issues (the character recites an impressive countdown to connect both of his own hands), the scenario has conversation so hokey, it will make you wonder if they created a Sci-fi movie or a never ending monologue. It is good to notice that the voice-acting casting from Resident Evil has now another piece of art under its belt.

5. Ruin


This one stunning and specific movie you can see, and it is a five-minute continuous sci-fi story on the Internet. The scenario of the film will seem a bit general at first – it is just gray colors and damaged roadways – but that is not always bad. Sure, the whole apocalypse environment has been explored before, and now it is truly creepy.

4. Rosa


If you like only one scary sci-fi battle in high-definition, then Rosa is where the action is. You can really see the cracking skin on the skeletons, and it completely offers an entertainment value. Maybe the show biz industry is just behind the independent movies, but this short movie is an example of how the audience can be totally captivated, and in a good way.

3. Abe


The movie looks a bit simple and inexpensive for the first moments, but at least have patience and you will immerge slowly into it. Do not let the most gratuitous critics either frighten you away or have unrealistic expectations from a short film created on a tight budget. Keep with it, since it begins as a pretty general story, it easily gets better into a bunch of sci-fi assault bullets.

2. Perfect Drug

perfect drug

“Perfect Drug” is an unusual mix of twisted humor, sci-fi and unique visuals all turned into an amazingly consistent story of a man who unintentionally drinks from a radiant vial that he has stolen from a drugstore for his manager. It was written by Belgian movie maker Toon Aerts, produced by Czar Films, a firm which makes ads, especially for cars.

1. Paralyzed


Showcases and darkness, playful lighting and funny music – if the components of scary movies came together and thrown without any logic into your face, the outcome would be “Paralyzed.” The brief story gives a strange feeling that many individuals have actually experienced – sleep paralysis – and develops a slinking and featureless appearance under the intangible fear.

There isn’t a main theme, but we were hinted that we will see the show focuse on sexuality, gender, persecution, bigotry, fear and identity crisis. It will be available on Netflix starting June the 5th.

I’m really excited about this new project by the Wachowski brothers, even though their last movie – Jupiter Ascending – was incredibly weak, I still have faith in them. More so when I found out that Cloud Atlas co-director Wachowski is on board.

Season 3

  • Orange is the New Black

Season 3 will hit this summer – on June the 12th to be more exact. Last season was the best so far, and for the past year I’ve been craving for more Piper Chapman, Sam Healy, Galina Red Reznikov, Taystee Jefferson and Poussey Washington. And I promise this time I won’t watch it in 2 days and then complain to my room mate Mark how empty life feels.

Pablo Escobar

  • Narcos

Does Pedro Pascal ring any bells to you? Well, how about Oberyn Martell? Yes, exactly him. The Game of Thrones actor that uhm met The Mountain, has his very own show. The story will focus on the life of Pablo Escobar and his cartel. An official date hasn’t been announced yet.

2015 Netflix Show

  • Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp

The first time that I read the shows name I instantly thought that Netflix was going into porn, but oh how horribly wrong I was.

Season 4

  • Longmire

The canned TV show Longmire will make its 4th season available on Netflix. With 10 new episodes, the show has the hard task of convincing everyone into wanting another season. Although it’s rumoured to appear this year, there are huge changes that it’s going to be pushed to 2016.

Co-Creator of F is for Family

  • F is for Family

Comedian Bill Burr and The Simpsons’ writer and producer Michael Price will be in charge of this little gem that almost escaped my eyes. It’s going to be an animated sitcom series that will dĂ©but sometime this year.

True Detective Season 2 will première on 21st of June

The first season of True Detective was like a breath of fresh air. Woody Harrelson was exceptional, but Matthew McConaughey sold the show; for me it was the first time seeing McConaughey play a role with such tremendous talent – the last movie I saw that starred Matthew was Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, and it was a horrible romance flick.

Nick Pizzollato’s season 2 is set to première on the 21st of June, and the trailer promises a dark cop show that spirals into the satanic detective genre. Only one other comparison comes into mind when I think of True Detective – Johnny Depp’s The Ninth Gate. It is something about this genre that just stalks your dreams.

If you thought that last season was filled with satanic elements – occult texts that made viewers scour the internet for their meaning – gripping your curiosity, and scaring your panties off, then wait until you hear who is going to be one of season 2’s directors. None other than William Friedkin, the man responsible for 1973’s The Exorcist – you could say that Friedkin and the Devil have a history together.

Collin Farrell and Vince Vaughn

Besides having a trailer for the show, and a release date, we also have a plot synopsis:

A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.

Trailer screenshot

Like last season, we expect to see how certain individuals in a privileged society stoop down to their lowest animal needs and construct a new meaning to the word psychopath. In its first season we saw Rust Cohle, and Marty Hart fight through the Devil’s traps in Louisiana, only to find out that man is capable of much worse than a demon from hell.

Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch will play the cops this time – and boy, I can’t wait to see Colin Farrell in action; if you haven’t watched In Bruges by now, stop everything you’re doing, and enjoy that gem. Vine Vaughn will play the villain this time around, and my curiosity is tingling. I’m not a fan of his movies, I’m not even a fan of his comedic output, but I am confident in the casting department, and probably Vince Vaughn will shock me exactly like Matthew McConaughey did last season – probably.

Collin Farrel

  • Collin Farrell will play Ray Velcoro a California Highway Patrol officer, and his official descriptions reads ” a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.” Also his a cocaine addict, and has problems in the anger management department. He was “[…] suspended for sexually exploiting a young woman he pulled over.”.

Vince Vaughn

  • Vince Vaughn will play Frank Semyon ” a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.” The thug turned businessman tries to turn legit, but it seems like Fate has other plans for him. Pizzollato has stated that he wrote the part with Vince Vaughn in mind

Rachel McAdams

  • Rachel McAdams, whom I just adore for her roles in The Time Traveller’s Wife, Sherlock Holmes, and Midnight In Paris, will play the main female lead as Sheriff Ani Bezzirades ” a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves.”.

Taylor Kitsch

  • Taylor Kitsch is in charge of portraying Paul Woodrugh ” a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.”. Last time I saw Taylor Kitsch in a movie a sudden urge took a grip of me and I went home to brush me eyes out with acid.

The main story will revolve around the mystery of how Ben Caspar, a 52 year old man, was found dead with occult markings on his chest:

The second season of True Detective will follow the death of Ben Caspar, the corrupt city manager of a fictional California city who’s found brutally murdered amid a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change freeway gridlock in the state. Three law enforcement officers from different cities and branches of the government are tasked with finding out who did it. They soon discover their investigation has much broader and darker implications than they initially thought. Caspar’s 52-year-old corpse is found on a lonely stretch of Pacific Coast Highway near Big Sur—satanic symbols etched on his chest. It turns out he had a penchant for rough sex and may have been involved in the occult.

I am more than excited after reading the plot synopsis, and I am eager for June to knock on my door.

How about you? Will you be tuning in on the 21st of June for the show?
