Batman V Superman, Suicide Squad and little bit of Star Wars

I had so hectic week that I didn't have time to watch a movie for today's post. Good for me, there have been few pics and trailers released past few weeks I can talk about. I already commented little about Batman v Superman in Tumblr. But because it get much less hits I can comment it here too.

Let's start with Jared Leto's Joker. It got negative response from comic book fans. They say Joker don't think he is damaged and would not tattoo "Damaged" into his forehead. Some think new Joker is too far from Heath Ledger's Joker. I have read some comics with Joker and liked Heath Ledger's Joker. I don't understand the negativity. I have seen some really outrageous Jokers in comics.

To me Jared Leto's Joker looks like most outrageous comic book Jokers. Forehead tattoo is stupid but it is not too much. It is just a picture. I liked Heath Ledger's Joker from first pictures. First picture of Jared Leto's wasn't as good but it looked like it could work when we see video and hear him. I guess biggest problem was it was so different than generally loved Heath Ledger's Joker.

First pictures of Suicide Squad got some negative response as well but not as much as Jared Leto's Joker. These pictures made me doubt if Suicide Squad could be good movie. Pics showed team of nine. I didn't realize they went for that big team. That feels too much even if everyone didn't look like each others. There will be other important characters too. All probably introduced in the movie.

I didn't like Harley Quinn at first but I will give her a change. This Harley Quinn fits with Jared Leto's Joker. Maybe they work on screen. I am not so sure if dark grey team of nine will work. It seems like DC cinematic universe will be as dark as possible. Everything will be as dark as possible.

If I am not expecting much from Suicide Squad at the moment same is not the case with Batman v Superman. Latest trailer looks like Superman movie I want to see. One where people turn against him and where he is not the good boy scout he usually is. It is said movie is based on The Dark Knight Returns. I liked that version of Superman. How that works with Man of Steel and upcoming Justice League movie is different matter. Trailer concentrated on Batman and Superman. Movie might have other Justice League members too which could make this something other than Superman movie I want to see.

I want to see a movie where people react realistically to Superman. Some people will see him as threat rather than someone who will help everyone because he is so good. Normally in movies and comics everyone are on Superman's side and no-one second guess if he is really that good guy. This got negative response because it is not like Superman normally is.

If DC Cinematic Universe got negative responses on everything latest Star Wars trailer got overly positive response. I don't understand why. All trailers tell is movie will look like Star Wars. Is that enough for everyone? I want more than just that. Prequels looked like Star Wars. That wasn't enough. Does seeing Han and Chewie confirm it will be like classic trilogy?
