Nerd Editorial: Viola Davis-How to get away with Suicide

With the casting of Viola Davis in the new Suicide Squad movie, all I can say is there aren’t many other people I personally could consider for the role of Amanda Waller. Nicknamed “the Wall”, she is a former congressional aide and government agent often placed in charge of the Suicide Squad, a semi-secret government-run group of former supervillains working in return for amnesty. She later served as Secretary of Metahuman Affairs under President Lex Luthor, before being arrested in the wake of Luthor’s public fall from grace.

Amanda_Waller_0002Having several media incarnations, including Smallville, Arrow, Justice League Unlimited on televsion and the Green Lantern movie from 2011, I’m interested to see what the former Prosecutor from Law and Order Viola Davis can bring to the role. Viola Davis has shown not just in the Law and Order franchise that she has the chops to play an amazing Amanda Waller, but she’s also got that sense of “I’m going to rip your shit out of your dickhole if you fuck with me” essence that I think Amanda Waller should have. She’s also been reported as a DC comic fangirl, which tells me as a comic fan that she knows the kind of attitude to bring to Wallers character. Read more about her being a fangirl here (http://batman-news.com/2015/02/28/viola-davis-explains-why-she-wanted-to-play-amanda-waller-in-suicide-squad/).

Suicide Squad is due for release August 5th, 2016.

Nerd Editorial: The Passing of a Legend.

The great actor Leonard Nimoy has passed away at the age of 83.
With tears in my eyes I write this as I remembered him fondly
ogAcRjBgrowing up I spent a great deal of time watching Star Trek with my brother and my sister
and it was one of the happiest moments I can remember from my childhood.

I always thought the character he played known as Spock was a ideal character who was
something the world always needed a intelligent man who was kind and caring and I like to believe. That Leonard Nimoy will always be remembered that way as well a kind caring person.

Although the role of Spock will be reprized over and over again by future actors
I will always remember fondly the memories he created for me and many others.

Goodbye one of my childhood heroes, you were a great man loved by many and your legacy will never be forgotten.

Nerd Editorial: Margot Robbie talks Suicide Squad

Margot Robbie while talking about her new movie coming out called “Focus”
the question was asked how she came into the role of becoming the worlds
infamous villain Harley Quinn.

Margot went onto say.
“I actually got offered this one, I didn’t audition, which is a real step up as an actor when you can get offered things,”
GalleryFuturesEnd_Wk2_1900x900_NSS-New3d-final02_B_5376398a95fed0.91943315So right from the get go they found her to be crazy enough to be the Jokers infamous sidekick in crazy. With Will Smith slated to play Dead Shoot one cannot help but wonder
if the Bats will show up at any more in time in the movie seeing as how the universe DC is building up takes place around the Batman vs Superman movie.

Margot also went onto say that the suicide squad is dark and gritty like the Dark Knight trilogy
and not as fantastic as the Avengers movie. Well from this DC fan I hope the movie they are making is going to be amazing and I personally can’t wait to see the twist they take on things.
