I also think that someone else was killed inside the infirmary and he did nothing. Now I really liked the movie but that was hard for me to swallow after Bat revealed himself.
    Totally agree, except that you didn't really need to be told that it was Batman in disguise, did you? There was never any chance Batman lost that fight with Black Spider off camera.

      Yeah. Bronze Tiger I could buy. Black Spider? Nah.

        Sooooo..... i FINALLY saw this (hence the thread resurrection).

        Now, i did only watch the extended cut; but, i thought it was a pretty darn fun movie.

        For me personally, i thought it was great; but its not a movie i will defend against detractors.. like Death Race.. i enjoyed it a lot, but i know where it stands.


        Have any of you re-watched it yet, with the added scenes? Do they add a lot? Should i even bother with the theatrical version at this point?

        Things that bugged me...
        -Waller shooting her staff, doesn't seem to be something Waller would do, at least from an efficiency standpoint.. she's ruthless, not a killer though..
        -Killer Croc should have been bigger, understanding that would be expensive.. but maybe some more prosthetic arm muscles or something

        Things that sealed the deal..
        -El Diablo; loved that guy; honestly would say he was the spine of the movie.
        -Will Smith was actually pretty darn good, defnlee took ownership of the Deadshot character for me.. goodbye TonyStark lookalike.. hello Will Smith.
        -Leto's Joker.. was well.. crazy.. a lot to take in there.. but i did love that laugh. I would watch more of him.


        I would rate this above BvS; but in all fairness, i am watching the extended version.. and if i'm gonna compare apples-to-apples; i should give the BvS extended cut a viewing; so i'll have to asterisk that rating.

        And since one can tell that these movies are all in the same film-verse.. a re-viewing of BvS (extended though) may help with any future DC film viewings.

        and honestly, i would whole-heartedly embrace a Suicide Squad 2, maybe cut back just a tad on the rock music overlays, but keep the tight plot-writing and ensemble cast and yeah.. this film could defnitely be improved upon..

        • Re: Suicide Squad

          my main issue wasn't the casting(they did the best they could there....still think Smith would make a Better Bronze Tiger than Deadshot,but they could've done worse...),it was who they picked for the Squad in the First place.I know they're trying to do the Nu-52 BS,but they couldn't have used Actual Squad members from the Comics?! The only one's they used were Flagg,Deadshot,Boomerang&Enchantress.

          Now i have no issue's with Harley Quinn,i just don't think she's squad material.My brother say's they picked her for Intel on the Area,But Deadshot's himself lived there too...

          and i happen to agree with you:Waller wouldn't have shot all her staff,as usually they were the only people she trusted.

            Don't forget Slipknot, used for the same quick gag as in the comics where Captain Boomerang said that the remote explosives were totally a bluff, and hey, why don't you try running? Oops, nope, they're real alright.

            • Re: Suicide Squad

              I think the source material they were using was definitely the newer Suicide Squad members.. of which El Diablo was a member.

              Though the Killer Croc inclusion left me puzzled. I don't mind it, because Croc is a personal favorite character of mine; though I'm guessing they wanted another Bat-villain to "possibly" keep this film somewhat Bat-centric. Yet, of course they threw the Flash reference in there, so whatever..

              I'd be fine leaving Croc out of sequel though.. but then you gotta guarantee me we get Multiplex (PINKY SWEAR!!!)

              and Katana stays.. definitely.. totally deserves her own well done.. something

              poor Slipknot.. no wait.. Poor Adam Beach.. dude is in EVERYTHING and just can't catch a break(out role)..

              Just checked about the sequel.. sounds like the studio wants to do one.. but also can't make up their mind about it either.. since they have "plans" for Harley in her own spin-off and possible plans for Smith in a Deadshot spinoff..

              sigh.. poor DC.. the minute something somewhat golden falls in their lap.. they blow their load.

              well, hopefully, something comes back down the pike as an SS2 with a nice big cast again.

                    With a changing roster that large, essentially anyone can be a member, so I don't see the point in complaining that most of the team weren't members in the books during the era you preferred.
