LOL

Doesn't give me the creepy vibe Heath Ledger's did in the initial Dark Knight trailer. Seems like he'll fit in with the rest of the characters. Doesn't help that I still see him as the dude from Requiem For A Dream.

I'm looking forward to this more than Superman vs Batman.

Heaths joker was so dope. I'm not feeling letos mallgoth joker but i mostly chalk that up to being an old fart who hates change. I'm sure he'll do fine in suicide squad. I'm not really that interested in the movie so i might not watch it. 

I'm much more interested in batman v superman just because of the sentimentality of it. I'm curious about how they tell that story more than i am excited to watch it. Really the only super hero shit I'm actually excited for is the Netflix marvel properties. Daredevil 2 and luke cage, primarily. Not too hype for iron fist or the defenders but I'm open to them. So far Netflix hasn't failed me.

*MY* take on it is... that whole movie can GET FUCKED for what they did to Harley Quinn!

Strike 1: No accent. You may not think it's a big deal. It IS. The entire character of Harley Quinn was BORN from a single voice from Aileen Sorkin. It was HER VOICE that gave life to Harley (and has for a LONG time)

Strike 2: Harley has NO IDEA WHO THE JOKER IS until the day...

Strike 3: The Joker pushes her into the same kind of vat of goo that made HIM into the Joker...

 

If they did THAT to fuckin' Harley, what do you think they did to Joker?! They COMPLETELY fucked up the dynamic between these two characters and as a result will not BE the characters we know at all. I said from the beginning that this movie should just be called "Harley and Friends" and would live or die based on how they did her and... now we know. Seeing Jared Leto's take on Joker is NOT NEARLY enough of a draw for me to make up how they managed to fuck her up so bad. And Will Smith sure as hell ain't got nuthin' to do with ANYbody coming to see this.

Margot Robbie would have been a PERFECT Harley Quinn. She's a british chick that did a Jersey accent in "Wolf of Wall Street" so it's not like she couldn't swing Harley's Bronx thing. They made her look JUST LIKE she does in the Arkham games... Everything seemed to be in place... and all it took was one trailer with her saying, "Huh?" and the whole thing fell apart.

I look forward to getting posters of Margot Robbie's hot ass in those shorts and ponytails but my desire to GO see this has been leeched from me cuz I just couldn't watch our favorite harlequin turned into anything less than her badass self. Personally I think it was some kinda PC bullshit decision to change their relationship in the current state of feminism that may not have looked understandingly to Harley and Joker's odd/abusive relationship that has inspired people around the world.

Damn shame is what it is!

They changed Harley's origin in the comic a while ago. She matches the current comic version.

Fwiw there's nothing feminist about the way they are portraying her if that helps. Lots of feminist critiques are complaining about the lack of autonomy and decision making in her origin story. Much like your complaint, feminists pretty Much agree the original origin was better. 

(also she has a subdued accent but it's still there. Just not as much)

Leto is lead singer in the band Thirty Seconds to Mars. Here's a concert video I'll call Emonomicon:

I'll probably see it opening weekend. I want to see how much they intertwine Wonder Woman into the story. Maybe an invisible jet!? Change happens, ya old fart! lol

And I agree with everything @cheshyr said regarding Harley. The accent threw me off right away, was really looking forward to that harsh, Jersey accent I've come to love. I had no idea they'd watered down the abusive relationship. Their relationship is fucked up. Get folks talking about it. Who knows. 

Speaking of Hot Topic ... should see an influx of diamond forearm tattoos in the near future.

I used to dig the fuck out of Thirty Seconds to Mars, especially their self titled album. 

And on a completely different note, it is rumored that Mr. Leto is a bit of a germaphobe. After a show in Seattle, maybe in 2006, the entire band came off the stage to sign autographs for everyone. Not only did he stand ten feet from the table but they all drew weird shapes as their signatures.

I know the comics are different ... and STOOOOpid. I read some shit about her going to Wonder Woman's island 'er sum shit and was a god for a short time... fucked if I know.

But from what *I have seen, people don't really give too much of a shit about the "comic book Harley". It's all about the animated series and the Arkham games (which are based in the animated canon).

I don't think some of the young-ins can fully understand the love that Harley has behind her. If you weren't old enough (or cool enough) to be watching the series' ("Batman: The Animated Series" "The Adventures of Batman and Robin" etc) back in the day, then you only have the experience of picking a character to like and following up on it... for those that WERE... it was like slowly falling for a girl you met on tv...

 

Here, I'll just let Keven Smith's introduction say everything that every TRUE Harley fan feels; which is the best way to illustrate just how SAD "Suicide Squad"'s depiction is. The FIRST time some people will get to know her... and it's THAT shit... smh (at least Margo Robbie is HOT!)

Listen to THIS and be skooled:

I don't need to be schooled. I agree with you. I never loved Harley but i did grow up watching the series that She was created on. 

Lots of people like her as she is now but i think they have essentially turned her into a new character. I do not like the look, and i greatly prefer the original origin story. It was a lot more interesting and complex, and gave her some autonomy which is nice.

The people you really gotta school are the assholes at dc comics because they clearly think she is someone else entirely.
