Jared Leto? You've got to be 'joking': SUICIDE SQUAD CASTING REVEALED

JARED LETO will play the JOKER..
WILL SMITH is DEADSHOT..
TOM HARDY is Rick Flagg..
MARGOT ROBBIE is HARLEY QUINN..
JAI COURTNEY is BOOMERANG..
CARA DEVELINGE is ENCHANTRASS..

All of this casting will occur for the film SUICIDE SQUAD, expected to begin filming during the spring of 2015..

WARNER BROS announced the news today with fanfare, saying that the comic book film will center  around the vaudevillians and their chance of redemption in the eyes of the government that denounced them..

The movie is planned for a release August 2016..

There are more casting rumors saying that Lex Luther will be played by Jesse Eisenberg..

However, it's not all rosy news for the press release naming the big stars to the cast..
Some DC Comics fans are concerned about the use of character actors to play lead roles--in this regard there is concern as well that none of the female leads are strong actresses ..  User comments on various stories in relation to this press release seem lukewarm to the cast. While some are able to live with names like Will Smith, others are exceptionally concerned about the way Leto will play the clown prince of crime--

DC COMICS fans know the SUICIDE SQUAD well. They are the people who, in the comic, have redeemed themselves in the eyes of the United States government and have now become assets of UNCLE SAM..

There is undoubtedly a strong political message throughout the comic--it's most likely the same theme will be present in the film adaptation. It just also so happens to come at the same time the 2016 presidential election will be wrapping up, some wonder if the film will try to assert some sort of statement in the political world..

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.
