  1. Michael Sacal says:

    One rumor about Dawn of Justice was that the President of the US dies. My theory is that after that Luthor becomes President, which puts him in charge of the Squad in this movie.

  2. TraylorPark says:

    Oprah? For the love of God, why???

  3. Portercat says:

    Was Boomerang just sort of introduced in Flash this week?

  4. Chris Butler says:

    Harley Quinn is Fan Service?!? BS, She’s a MEMBER of the Suicide Squad, In the Comics, in the Animated Universe AND the Cinematic universe as of CW’S Arrow. The only person who could be concidered Fan-Service would be Joker! He, Is Not, Was Not, and never Has Been a member of the suicide squad! Waller would NEVER be able to control him, AT ALL! 

    • Staaty says:

      I think they’ll have him in a strange sort of supporting roll, not in the actual Squad

    • Scott says:

      Nail on the head Chris. And where is Bronze Tiger

    • RoninFox says:

      I’d expect Joker to be the uncontrolled villain the rest of the squad is forced to stop…though that raises further questions of why Waller would trust Harley to be part of the team. Perhaps she won’t be at first, but will recruited in the aftermath.

    • TheShortSwede says:

      He was not in the squad but he was in the comic book as a villain.

  5. CubanRefugee says:

    I’d love to see where it’s been confirmed that Oprah *will* be accepting the role of Amanda Waller.  Everything everywhere except Nerdist says that she’s the studio’s top choice, but not once is there official word that she’s agreed.

  6. Maria G says:

    No Oprah, please. If you want Waller, you need Queen Latifah. She’s one of us and will do the part justice because she’ll get it. (Besides, my Suicide Squad is the DC TV one.)

    • CubanRefugee says:

      CCH Pounder will always be my Amanda Waller.

      • Nick C says:

        Exactly, even discounting her doing the voice on the animated stuff how could someone watch her on The Shield and Sons of Anarchy and not immediately think of Waller

  7. ldeas says:

    Can the Chobot do an entire episode with just Bane voice?

    Autoplay video? Guess I won’t be clicking on your links any more.
