I had a blast chatting to some of the cast members starring in the latest DC Universe movie Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay at Wondercon. You can buy the new film on Blu-Ray or digital download today. I’m hoping to have a chance to see it to post a review since it was such fun talking to everyone about their characters and of course seeing the clip (see below) that is giving me all the childhood feels! I have to say my roadtrip snack is cinnamon candy and my parents did love a drivethru but with a bunch of ‘heroes’ like them I’d let them do what they want! Lucking Amanda Waller’s in charge of Task Force X and she won’t take any guff from Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Killer Frost, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn and Copperhead on their latest mission!

 

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay finds Amanda Waller’s top secret “Task Force X” – Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Killer Frost, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn and Copperhead – on a mission to retrieve a mystical object so powerful that they’re willing to risk their own lives to steal it. But the Suicide Squad isn’t the only group of villains seeking to possess the object. The race is on for the golden prize … and, to stay alive, second place isn’t an option.

Amanda Walker is leading our favorite villains for a mayhem filled action packed secret mission in the upcoming Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay. The latest DC Universe movie will be released starting March 27, 2018 on digital and on Ultra HD Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD April 10, 2018. the animated film will be rated R for strong bloody violence throughout, sexual content, brief graphic nudity, and some drug material. It is the Suicide Squad so I expect it to be at the same level of violence and mayhem as well as appealing to the same audience as the live action film. It looks like loads of grownup/older teen fun with characters that some non comic book reading fans will be meeting for the first time. 

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay finds Amanda Waller’s top secret “Task Force X” – Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Killer Frost, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn and Copperhead – on a mission to retrieve a mystical object so powerful that they’re willing to risk their own lives to steal it. But the Suicide Squad isn’t the only group of villains seeking to possess the object. The race is on for the golden prize … and, to stay alive, second place isn’t an option.

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay is a definite thrill ride for fans, mixing non-stop action with plenty of humor – all while watching villains go head-to-head with villains,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “This film has an all-star cast, an extremely accomplished filmmaking team, and the perfect mix of excitement and fun. We’re proud to bring Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay to audiences this spring.”

 

 

I am so excited about the cast for the new new animated film heroes to villains and everyone in between it’s a who’s who of actors and voice actors that we all know! This will be the first time Christian Slater (Mr. Robot, Archer, True Romance) joins the DC Universe Movies where he will be the voice of Deadshot, who heads “Task Force X” alongside Billy Brown (How To Get Away With Murder) as Bronze Tiger, Liam McIntyre (Spartacus: War of the Damned, The Flash) as Captain Boomerang, Kristin Bauer van Straten (True Blood, Once Upon a Time) as Killer Frost, Gideon Emery (Teen Wolf) as Copperhead, Tara Strong (Batman: The Killing Joke) as Harley Quinn and their “boss,” Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) as Amanda Waller. Villainous forces in the film include C. Thomas Howell (Outcast, The Outsiders, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) as Zoom, Dania Ramirez (Devious Maids, Heroes, Once Upon a Time) as Scandal Savage, James Urbaniak (Difficult People, The Venture Bros.) as Professor Pyg, Julie Nathanson (The Zeta Project, Beverly Hills 90210) as Silver Banshee and Jewelee, and Jim Pirri (Injustice 2) as Vandal Savage & Vertigo. Rounding out Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay are Greg Grunberg (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Heroes) as Steel Maxum, Dave Fennoy (Batman: Arkham Knight, Batman: The Telltale Series) as Blockbuster & Tobias Whale, Cissy Jones (Firewatch) as Knockout, Natalie Lander (The Middle, Justice League Action) as Darma, Trevor Devall (Johnny Test) as Punch, Dave Boat (Family Guy, The Good Dinosaur) as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, and Matthew Mercer (Critical Role, Batman: Bad Blood) as Savage Gunman.

The animated film has Sam Liu, Producer/Director (Gotham by Gaslight, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract) with co-producer Alan Burnett (Justice League vs. Teen Titans) who wrote the script and Sam Register and James Tucker (Batman vs. Two-Face, Justice League Dark) who are Executive Producers.

August 21st, 2016 by Cherry

I went to see Suicide Squad with very low expectations since I wasn’t impressed with most of the cast, am tired of the Joker/Batman/Superman and DC movies are uneven. I got my hopes a little bit at SDCC with all the fans excited about various characters from the film and all the fan experiences.

I was pretty spot on with my concerns from watching ads and reading about reshoots of the film after the dismal Batman vs Superman (if you want to have a movie about Batman and Superman fighting have a DAMN movie about them fighting smh). One of the first things I noticed and didn’t like is that the film is so dark even with the pop of candy color it just was so shadowy it was hard to make out the movie. The opening sequence didn’t pull me in and left me feeling and just wasn’t sticky so I’d like to say what I’D do if I were in charge of the movie/DC Films.

I would divide the film into 2 separate arcs. The first is showing why Amanda wanted to create the Suicide Squad and A.R.G.U.S. test capture of 3 metahumans. If I’d been writing the film it would have opened with some people being killed by a villain or even by a metahuman fighting a bad guy/gal and they would just be collateral damage and Amanda Wallis leading A.R.G.U.S. are unable to do anything. The next scene is the opening title/credits for the film with the comic book that has inspired the film. Amanda and her team are capturing metahumans and putting them in the bunker. They have a couple of lowlevel/weakones and after practicing they decide to grab a ‘big gun’. Amanda is in the war room with the ‘Most Wanted’ on the board decided who will be the first test of her men/women. She say’s first we grab Deadshot using the love of his child. Harley Quinn using her love of violence, sex and the Joker (he’s not on camera). The closing scene is the main gate closing of the facilities. Closing credits and than the scene opens with Amanda and the Generals in a skybox looking down at the prisoners using their powers. She says ‘their will always be metahumans wrecking havoc but we need our own to fight for humanity’. One general says ‘we can’t control these monsters’. Amanda smiles and opens a hand with a little pill and says ‘I’m always in control’. That’s the first film where humans go up against three bad guys/gals.

One of the residents of Apokolips, Granny Goodness is in charge of training (sometimes through brainwashing) new soldiers for Darkseid’s forces. She leads the Female Furies.

The second film would start with capturing the rest of the team with backstory and their first takedown as Suicide Squad of a better villain than the Enchantress and her bother . I would have loved ANY of these lesser villains that would have been hard to take down and were just visually more interesting. Also WHY did she shimmy while casting spells? I expected a pole to appear and 5 inch stripper heels to match the stripper outfit she had on to appeal to ‘fanboys’.

 

 

Grey Lora High ranking operative of the terrorist army Basilisk.

Artemis is the Shim’Tar (greatest warrior) of the Egyptian Amazons of Bana-Mighdall. For a short time, she also held the title of Wonder Woman.

Also the ‘big bad’ was a big boring snore and the fight scenes looked like a pretty

Agni was a member of the Jihad and had pyrokinetic abilities.

good video game but I don’t want to see a movie that looks like I could be playing it at home. I suppose my frustration is watching this film gave glimmers of what a blast it could have been but DC failed to make a good non Batman movie and is too busy playing catch up to Marvel that they are ignoring the incremental steps they took to introduce new characters and build up a world.
