Deadpool & Suicide Squad – The Year Of The Anti- Hero

Marvel & DC are finally putting their guns behind the interesting stories they have in their line up and these are some juicy movies, they will either be a major hit or a total flop. From what I can see from the trailers they are looking to be top notch movies. Ryan Reynolds is the perfect fit for the mouthy Merc, he sounds like Deadpool is in the comics, entertaining in the most chaotic situations. Suicide Squad has been in the works for a long time and there is a comedic twist to the bad guys saving the world, seriously worst heroes ever. I do love these movies.

Batman – Assault On Arkham

The film is set in the universe of the Batman: Arkham video game franchise, and occurs after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins. The story focuses primarily on theSuicide Squad, particularly Batman villains Deadshot and Harley Quinn, with Batman in a supporting role. In the film, a Suicide Squad of six criminals is dispatched byAmanda Waller to break into Arkham Asylum, where they must contend with the asylum’s inmates and Batman as they attempt to complete their mission.

This is by THE best direct to video made by DC Comics, or any other company for that matter. There are a lot of DTVs made and the creators get to have a good amount of experimentation in style and the quality of the animation itself varies drastically, but DC Comics is usually on top of their game with their Direct to Video Movies. For once they didn’t stick to your typical storyline, and the bad guys played a much deeper role then just Batman himself, the Suicide Squad had a colorful array of characters who carried the movie in a more comic book style then seen before, and that made it that much better. The combination of action, artstyle, humor, wit, voices, and characters took this movie to another level, now DC has set the bar so high it’s going to be hard to beat this movie. One thing to keep in mind this movie is not for kids, and I will leave it at that.
