On this week’s Geek Confidential podcast Luke Kerr and Craig Peters are joined by Nick Scharnick to discuss the DC Extended Universe’s (DCEU) next, great hope–Suicide Squad.
Did the gang of villains, brought together to save a world without Superman, live up to the hype? What did they think of Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Enchantress (Cara Delevingnes), Slipknot (Adam Beach), Katana (Karen Fukahara), Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbje), Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and The Joker (Jared Letto)? Should Jesse Eisenberg have portrayed The Joker in Suicide Squad?
Reportedly, Suicide Squad was tweaked after Deadpool’s success and the terrible critical reception of Batman v. Superman. How was the film impacted? Did the GC crew enjoy the story? Was there enough character development?
Find out what they think of Batman (Ben Affleck) and The Flash’s (Ezra Miller) cameos.
The three wrap up their Suicide Squad episode by sharing their geeky recommendations for the week.
All this and much more on this week’s Geek Confidential podcast!
