Comics Wrap-Up - While I Clean This Slate With the Hands of Uncertainty

 


'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols


It's Thursday, it may be April Fool's Day, but no tricks here - just comics-y, superhero-y, goodness!


Film Trailers


We have the new trailer for The Suicide Squad!

Which looks as batpoop bizarre as you'd expect, really.

Also - Harley Quinn in that red dress? *fans self* 


Warning: flashing images, ableism, blood (GRAPHIC,) violence (inc. gun violence) (GRAPHIC,) gore (GRAPHIC,) gross-out humour, adult humour, prison





TV Shows


Argh - The Falcon and The Winter Soldier episode 2! (Still spoiler-free zone, no worries)


Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan,) hanging off the bottom of a moving truck: [yelling]

They are really not avoiding social issues here, huh?

Although, seriously Marvel, the Queerbaiting?! Again?! Get them together and/or address it explicitly, or cut it out entirely, ok?

I'm totally loving this series though - hope it'll stay as awesome as it is now!




Other Stuff


And to end this week, check out this interview with Alexandra Monir, author of DC's YA novel Black Canary: Breaking Silence, over at Women Writers, Women['s] Books






Did you notice the Queerbaiting issues in Falcon & Winter Soldier?

Harley Quinn's dress - are you also dead right now?

What do you think of The Suicide Squad trailer?

  1. I watched the first Suicide Squad a while ago closer to when it first came out and I'll be honest and say I wasn't thrilled with it. I think I enjoy more light-hearted humour in my superhero movies. Harley Quinn looks stunning in this trailer though!

    1. Yeah I can understand that - there were a few narrative/structural issues with Suicide Squad too. But things like that and Deadpool totally appeal to my warped brand of humour ;)

      And she most definitely does! Lol.
