    Dwayne Dibbley would have been a step up from Will Smith, but Idris himself?

    Feck yeah! :D:pac:

    Not a bad replacement, though Elba seems to be popping up in everything these days; busy man. Possibly also rules him out of contention to be the new James Bond?

    Is he not too black to play Will Smith?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,909 ✭✭✭ Gwynplaine


    First one was terrible. I hope that abomination of the Joker doesn't make a return. Truly awful.

    Jai Courtney returning as Captain Boomerang.

    1st one was total shít (as a movie) why bother with a sequel?

    Made a huge amount of money and that's all that matters

    I sense money being pumped into this film.

    LOTS of Money!

    Starting to turn into a fairly decent cast. has it been confirmed that Idris Elba is playing Deadshot? I seem to remember reading that Will Smith wouldn't be in the sequel but could return. I Actually found him and Margot Robbie to be the only two redeeming parts of the first.

    I think Idris is playing a new character now

    Given Capaldi's role as the Doctor, I initially read the second name as Peter Davison, and got all confused about two Doctors appearing in this :D

    I think that is the best call. Smith is probably seeing how this one plays out and he'll go from there.

    The first film was awful. Jared Leto's Joker was terrible. Really terrible. Was he playing him as some form of sex deviant? The antagonists had no real menace to them. The heroes were not given enough of a backstory to make them really be anti heroes. Absolute mess of a film.

    Will probably watch the second one tho'


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,384 ✭✭✭✭ AMKC


    I must be in the minority as I enjoyed the first film and am looking forward to the second one.

    Here's the thing... it's not as bad as people say. It'll entertain you for the running time and that's all a movie has to do. Could it have been better? Sure. Was Jared Leto terrible as the joker? Absolutely :pac: But it's not the worst movie a person could ever see.

    But let's be honest if it was such the turd of a movie for the studio money wise and secondly, critically, they wouldn't be making a sequel.

    If you're willing or able to look past the structural flaws, bad characters, pacing problems and total mess of a plot, then sure; the film is superficially entertaining, in that it has action set-pieces and nominal excitement. But for me, it's entirely as bad as people say: speaking with a film critic hat on, its script is so horrendously bad, and the structure of the film so all over the place (the editing given to the marketing firm who cut that popular trailer), I can't look past the chaos. What's more, it was often boring chaos, featuring two (two!) "meet the team" segments, then forgot to introduce two members anyway, and added some quick "oh by the way, here's Slipknot and random-katana-lady".

    Maybe one day, the original Ayer cut will find its way to a home release, and we'll get a better sense of the shape of the thing originally. As it stands, it was edited by a marketing company.

    Joel Kinnamon....didn't believe he'd be back.

    Peter Capaldi and Michael Rooker...colour me interested.

    Taika Wakiki.....has to be some absurd chi character he's voicing. Would love it if he was physically and visibly acting here. Makes me think Gunn has put something seriously good together.

    Nathan Fillion, I'm all in!


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,558 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    How much money would Disney pay Gunn to tank it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 75,012 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    John Cena in too

    Last film I saw him in was the wall. I reckon he can do serious with the right director. Gunn might be more a comedic director. Cena can probably do comedic too.
