The Flash must find a way to restore time to its original path and finally apprehend his worst enemy before all is lost for The Flash … and the world! Along the route, The Flash encounters numerous new characters being introduced to the popular DC Super Heroes series, including The Atom; B’dg, a squirrel-esque Green Lantern; a pair of legendary super pets in Ace the Bat-Hound and Krypto the Super-Dog, Batman and Superman’s faithful canine pals; as well as Aquaman’s trusted seahorse, Storm.

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.

I’m super excited to check out this art exhibit inspired by Heroes and Villains that will be in San Diego during SDCC this year!  I LOVE art, superheros, DC and heroes!  What hero inspires you?  I love Superman (of course got to love the Midwest good guy!) and would love to fly!  I’m loving that this is the second art/museum event taking place this year so am going to be running around like a madwoman to see everything not just in the convention hall but in the satellite areas!  San Diego is going to be HOPPING so I will have to bring crazy comfy shoes!

Darkness & Light: Art Inspired by Heroes & Villains, Hope & Heroism exhibition is a one-of-a-kind art and education tour to raise awareness and funds for the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. Darkness & Light features some of today’s top contemporary artists and showcases a collection of original artwork inspired by DC Comics’ Justice League characters paired with real world photography that depicts the everyday heroes fighting hunger in Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. From the Super Heroes that fight for justice in the comic world, to the human heroes who make a difference every day in the real world,Darkness & Light tells the story of the crisis through the lens of those working tirelessly to be of service to those in need.

The exhibition shows us what is possible when we tap into our own best qualities of responsibility, willpower and inner strength to be of service to others in need. And just like our favorite Justice League Super Heroes, the art reflects the Super Hero powers we each hold that compel us to do good in the world.

The centerpiece of the collection features a large-scale piece of original artwork by Jim Lee, the legendary artist and DC Entertainment co-publisher, featuring the profile of Batman in a color palette inspired by the hues of Africa – yellow, green, red and black. Lee’s work is featured alongside journalistic photography that expose moments of heroism by aid workers in the Horn of Africa.

Select pieces of DC Entertainment artwork will be auctioned off at the end of the tour with all net proceeds going directly the We Can Be Heroes campaign.

Darkness & Light is launching at Mercy Corps’ Global Headquarters and gallery in Portland, Oregon – a nonprofit partner of We Can Be Heroes – and then traveling to cities across the country including Comic-Con in San Diego July 9-15.

If you’re in a tour city, stop by to see the artwork and find out how you can make a difference! DONATE

 

One small act can make you a hero. Give now.

Support our nonprofit partners working on the ground in the Horn of Africa
and DC Entertainment will match your donation 100%.
