“THE SUICIDE SQUAD” 101: Who You Need to Know (Part 2 of 2)

Reblogged from Geek to Geek Media!

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is the upcoming sequel to the somewhat divisive 2016 film simply titled Suicide Squad. Acclaimed Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is taking a very different approach this time around, though. The movie boasts an even bigger cast of random, throwaway characters from the DC Comics universe with the tagline “Don’t get too attached.”

In Part 1, we did a rundown of every confirmed character from the new movie, this time we’re taking a look back at some of the Suicide Squad’s heroic villains/villainous heroes that didn’t make the cut…

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is the upcoming sequel to the somewhat divisive 2016 film simply titled Suicide Squad. Acclaimed Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is taking a very different approach this time around, though. The movie boasts an even bigger cast of random, throwaway characters from the DC Comics universe with the tagline “Don’t get too attached.”

So before the new movie comes out, we figured a quick rundown of every confirmed character from the new movie might help you get to know who you shouldn’t get attached to. (A follow-up post will re-introduce some Suicide Squad heroic villains/villainous heroes you should know about but will absolutely not be in Gunn’s new no-strings-attached popcorn muncher.)

REVISITING “SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE UNIVERSE” (VOL 5)

Reblogged from Geek to Geek Media!

Check out my previous review of Vol 4: “Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together” here!

Bryan Lee O’Malley’s “Scott Pilgrim vs the Universe” is the fifth volume of the Scott Pilgrim and like the previous one, has very little in common with the film adaptation. The book follows up on the happy ending of Vol 4 where it seems as though Scott and Ramona are finally overcoming their pasts. Scott has vanquished the first four members in the League of Evil Exes, but this time he’ll have to contend with the Katayanagi Twins! But first, the book randomly opens with Scott’s 24th birthday with a super anime inspired overreaction to being called old and then a hilarious panel of him nomming on some chocolate cake.

REVISITING “SCOTT PILGRIM GETS IT TOGETHER!” (VOL 4)

Reblogged from Geek to Geek Media!

Check out my previous review of Vol 3: “Scott Pilgrim & The Infinite Sadness” here!

Bryan Lee O’Malley’s “Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together” (does he though?) is the fourth volume in the Scott Pilgrim saga and probably my personal favorite! It’s also possibly the least like the movie?

Scott vs the Summer

It’s a scorching summer in Toronto, Canada. Scott and friends go to the beach to celebrate Julie’s birthday (at her aunt’s beach house). There are a lot of cute moments between Scott and Ramona in this one, while the two of them awkwardly consider taking the next step in their relationship (aka the L Word: not “lesbians”). During a heat wave, Scott escapes his non-air-conditioned apartment to go hang out at the mall where he runs into Lisa Miller! (see the flashback from Vol 2)
