Warner Bros Gives Suicide Squad the Greenlight

by

Seems all those meetings Warner Bros. held all those months ago have finally pumped the company into taking its properties more seriously, as it is diving into the DC vaults to pull out properties to exploit into films.  Green Lantern, Jonah Hex, Justice League, Flash, Super Max, Wonder Woman are all in production — okay, probably not Wonder Woman, but there will be another Superman and Batman film for sure, because, well, that last Superman film did so well in the theaters…  The latest series to get the movie treatment is the government sponsored Suicide Squad.

“Suicide Squad” will feature a mix of well-known and unknown villains recruited by the government to accomplish a task deemed too dangerous for superheroes. The historically independent operators must bury their own interpersonal conflicts and agendas to form a cohesive unit to take on a singular task.

  • Amanda Waller
  • Black Orchid
  • Bronze Tiger
  • Captain Boomerang (Digger Harkness)
  • Captain Cold
  • Count Vertigo
  • Deadshot
  • Doctor Light (Arthur Light)
  • Duchess (Lashina)
  • Enchantress
  • Javelin
  • Karin Grace
  • Major Victory (William Vickers)
  • Nemesis (Tom Tresser)
  • Nightshade
  • Oracle
  • Poison Ivy
  • Punch and Jewelee
  • Ravan
  • Rick Flag, Jr.
  • Shade, the Changing Man
  • Vixen

The Variety report has producer Dan Lin working this up into a franchise, so if all goes well, we could see everyone on this list eventually.

Okay Major Spoilers Legion, who do you want to see in the Suicide Squad movie, and who do you want to play those roles?  I know, it’s a topic that ends up being a lot of fan masturbation, but don’t you all want to see Whoopie Goldberg playing Amanda Waller on the big screen?  Come’on you know you do…
