Today Empire released their magazine cover of Jared Leto as the Joker for the upcoming movie, Suicide Squad. It further illustrates the departure from earlier film incarnations. It’s wildly different from the Heath Ledger version. For instance, the coat looks expensive, rather than the ill-fitted mess in The Dark Knight. Plus the cane is a nice touch.
Marvel’s Ant-Man was a long movie coming. Edgar Wright started scripting it before there was Iron Man — even before there was something called Marvel Studios. Then there was the start of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that grew. Then there was a falling out between Marvel and Wright. Things looked dire for Ant-Man. But alas! A miracle! The movie came out and it wasn’t a mess. In fact, it was a blast.
When I was a child, I would go to to the arcade with friends – yeah, yeah, who didn’t? One section of the arcade had free games. Once I was out of change, I was over there. There was one game I was obsessed over. The object of the game was simple: as a huge monster, destroy everything in sight. How could a kid not love that? Smash buildings, punch cars, and eat people; it’s all innocent fun. The title of the game was on the mark: Rampage.
