I don't know. Good for Manganiello, he is a talent that deserves a big role in movies. I mainly object on Deathstroke. I mean, he is not even really a Batman villain. Teen Titans and Nightwing are more of his ouvre. What he has in common with Batman that makes him a compelling villain except maybe in close combat? Someone hires him to kill Bats-yay?
I sound so negative. I'm usually very open to new ideas and characters being used but I really don't like Deathstroke as a Batman villain. I was hoping for something bit more out-there as a main villain. Riddler, Ventriloquist, Man-Bat or something like that.
Again, great idea if true. Would explain the possible overrun even more if their commanders and officers know the practises of both nations armies.
I loved the Batman and Flash cameos.
Both cameos where to my one of the highlights of the movie. Small things sure, but they felt like the characters they were supposed to be. Flash with his jokeful additude and self-confident demeanor felt jsut right. And this time Batman felt like...well, Batman. Way that scene played out was just the right tone of Batman for me. Dark, sure but he is not psychopat.
"I don't want to this in front of the girl." There's compassion there, something I don't think BvS showed enough (or at all.)

I...I'm quite on the different team on that. Arrow's Boomerang was boring as hell. He was just some guy who happened to throw boomerangs and had a vendetta against one of the characters. Only thing different about him was that he threw boomerangs. SS's Boomerang was a bank robber (who robbed every bank in Australia at least once, loved that line), a backstabber, a$%!! who threws his teammates under a bus and clearly a coward as well. I think he had a clear personality and we the audience knew what kind of man he was.
True, Arrow's Boomer had more stuff to do but he was the main villain and the focus character of that episode, but what was he like, what kind of man he was except vengeful-these questions were left unanswered in my opinion.
I'm also on the side of Mr. Mxyzptlk for this. Makes more sense, since Hartley is not really that....whimsical and he is kinda on the same level with Meister. Imp from the 5th dimension I could imagine doing that AND that's one way to use very classic Superman villain that DCEU will not use.
(oh, and I think that the New 52 version would be the way to go, at least design-wise.)

Destroyer, as in Destroyer armor from Thor I believe?
Boomerang has been one of the mainstay characters of the Squad through most of it's incarnations. He was in the original Ostrander squad, he was in the 90's squad that was seen in Superboy comics, New 52 squad's first incarnation (in a HILARIOUS manner) and in the NEw Suicide Squad he was with Deadshot and Harley the only members that stayed trough it. And now with rebirth he is again the mainstay character.
Point is, Boomer's kinda the mascot of the team by now.
This made me very happy. I was afraid they were going to go with Thor/Loki route with Ocean Master. I wanted something a little more original. Black Manta is one of the coolest looking villains and one the rare villains that I think are really legit terrifying. I'd hope they get Djimon Hounsou to play him. That dude can be terrifying.
Glad to see someone else liking this version. He seemed like he was on the edge whole time, I really got the feeling that you really can't predict what he does next. Especially in that flashback. Before this I was hardcore fan of not having the Joker in the next Batman movie- but now I kinda want that. To see the whole "Jared Leto Joker" experience.
This only confirms my headcanon that Asmodeus pretty much acts and sounds like Hades from Disney's Hercules movie.
"Name's Asmodeus, Lord of the Damned. Hi, how ya doin'?"
Mortal: "I'm going to hell for this, am I?"
Asmodeus: "Nah. I mean, it's, you know, it's a possibility. It happens 'cause, you know, it's war, but what can I tell ya?"
"My sweet deluded little minion. Aren't we forgetting one teensy-weensy, but ever so crucial little, tiny detail? I OWN YOU!"
Hey, ummm, I saw it in preview show.
And I liked it. Not loved it, but liked it. Will Smith is amazing, as is Margot Robbie and most of the Squad. Can't judge on Jared's Joker basis of this movie. Jai Courtney finaly managed to be enjoyable in a movie. I really loved Boomerang in this. Story is something of a mess, but characters are really fun as are their interactions.
I would recommend seeing it.

Almost exactly the reason why I was originally going to see new Star Trek movie. Then I heard it was good and that factored in.
When superhero movies are being made I avoid staring too much at the comic books history of the character. Maybe she's not a colonel, but the rank is not really that important to me. Her being still not so experienced and learning while having these umbeliavable powers is, to me at least, more interesting story.
What interests me more is the "NPC Gallery" of this movie. Is Mar-Vell gonna show up? Are they gonna have ties to AoS and Tahiti in any way? Coulson cameo would fit this good. Is Moonstone the BBEG or Yon-Rog? Yon is in her origin story so that would fit, though I looove me some Moonstone. Maybe one of the runner-ups should be her :D
Has there been any rumors about the director?
Seen it yesterday, really liked it. And yes, Kate McKinnon was awesome from start to finish. Hemsworth made me laugh so much, he was a ball of fun. All the actors had chemistry between them. Not all jokes landed but most did. Villain/ending bit weak but at least it looks fun and new ghost designs are impressive.
Probably gonna see this again!

I like the idea of playing a character who was one thing before the "event" and another afterwards. Barbarian becomes Id Rager. Not-a-Occult Class becomes a Fractured Mind. Investigator becomes a Psychic Detective. Etc.
Not a bad idea. Our group did something similiar in Jade Regent. One PC was a cavalier at the start until he found some books and guides of samurais and he became samurai as well.
And now I have seen the last episode. What a rollercoaster.
I think this is one of the WEAKEST endings a series could have. Logan wanted to end the series, okay, but you could do it better and less cliched. For Pete's sake this has the same ending as X-MEN 3. "You have to kill me so I can't destroy the world" Oh my god I hate that. I might be alone with this but still. One of the best female characters dies like that is kind of annoying. And Kaetaney-thing went disturbingly more "Dances with Wolves" than I inital thought. Also the whole thing with Jekyll was in the end, completely pointless. This just annoys me as you we know that all of this is NOT gonna continue. What happened to Dracula? What happened to Renfield, Jekyll, Brona- this series ending leaves so much open it's horrible.
But the good stuff: The battle with Dracula's forces was cool and it involved lots of moving and climbing and cool stuff. Especially from Catriona, she was amazing. I had hoped that the battle with Dracula itself would also be cool, but he just smacked them around for a while. I wanted Ethan to tear him apart g** d%#mit :D I also liked what happened with Dorian, mainly because that kinda fits his character. And Caliban's scenes in all were, once again, some of the best stuff in the series.
But as a ending to the series, this was just a mess. I still hope that Logan might turn his stance and continue the series some day but as for now, what a disappointing ending to a great series. Penny Dreadful will still remain as one of the finest pieces of television entertainment of the modern era.
My concern, going forward, is that I haven't seen anything to indicate the series has been renewed for a 4th season. They left some really interesting plot threads dangling, and I really would like to see the story continued. I especially would dearly love to see Mr. Lyle again, since I'm betting his reappearance on the show would presage a visit from a certain Egyptian monster.
There will not be a fourth season. Read it here. Sad news all around.
Catriona Hartdridgen, Vampire Hunter. With that coat and reddish hair she looked like certain Elsa Bloodstone ;)
I want to thank Penny Dreadful for one thing. In a long time I have not been scared of the idea of vampires or of vampires in any fiction. Penny Dreadful made me again shiver when they appeared.
And oooh yeeah twin werewolf action baby!
Episode 9 is not yet in HBO Nordic's site so I have not yet seen the last episode of the series. Because it ends here. No fourth season for us, folks.
Citizens of Korvosa. This is the Law.
F*CK! F*CK! WE ARE IN DEEP MANURE RIGHT NOW!
Dorian sitting at the end of table was my favorite shot of this season. Table full of women and he is miserable as hell. I loved that :D And I really liked that Dorian is not happy with what's happening. Fits his character very well.
Dammit Billy Piper you are on FIRE! Damn good delivery.
