So today is a day off.
I’m pretty shattered after a very mixed weekend at work.
I’m looking forward to next weekend though as my shifts have fallen really great for the next two weeks.
I’m working Tues, Thurs, Fri this week and Weds, Fri, Sat next week, so I have an extra long weekend this weekend!
So, what to do today?
I don’t really have the energy for much to be honest.
I’ll have to do some prep work on my last two college units so I can get cracking on them but other than that, I’ll be doing a quick run to Tesco to have a look at the DVD releases for the day and to get dinner and then I’ll just be pottering around the house doing some cleaning.
I plan to have all that finished by mid afternoon so I can sit down with my feet up recharging the batteries for work tomorrow.
Anyway, I’ve just spent an hour having a flick through all the Comic-con reports and videos that have been springing up this week.
Comic-con is one place we’ll NEVER get to go to.
Even if we do have the finances, Ian is in no shape to be queuing through the night for a seat in Hall ‘H’ and he certainly is in no shape to be sitting in those chairs in Hall ‘H’ for hours on end. He’d be crippled after day 1!!
So, I’ll just have to make do with on-line videos and transcripts and photos.
Am I jealous?!!
Yes, of course I’m bloody jealous!!!!
Anyway, I managed to get my first glimpse of some Suicide Squad material.
From the looks of it, I was pretty lucky to get that!
The trailer that was specifically made to be shown at Comic-con and nowhere else, was leaked onto the internet.
It’s being pulled back again quite quickly!
The copy I saw was watchable and gave me a good idea of what we are in for and may I just say…… Jared Leto is literally going to rock as the Joker!!!
Looks like we already have a catch phrase.
‘I’m not going to kill you. I’m just gonna hurt you, really….. really…. baaad!!’
Anyway, this site’s video was still playable this morning so if you want to take a look just follow the link and click on the player.
You’ll have to sit through an obligatory advert first but you won’t be disappointed!!
This film is not due for release until August NEXT year so we’ll be lucky to see any ‘officially’ release material until January.
So now I know how this film is going to feel.
It’s going to be a lot darker than Marvel and I wouldn’t expect anything less!!
Marvel is all good vs evil but DC as anyone will tell you, has the best villains so it’s going to be bad vs evil!!
And Joel Kinnaman is going to be trying to keep them all under control!!
I do just have to mention a little story I just read about Ben Afleck at Comic-con.
Obviously he was there to promote the new Batman vs Superman movie and he told the story of a surprise meeting with Christian Bale.
“Before we started the movie I was getting my kid a Halloween costume. My son is really into Batman,” Affleck explained.
“We went to a costume store in Los Angeles… it was pretty empty. And I was in the aisle and I heard this ‘Oi!’, and I turned around, and it’s Christian Bale!
“And there he and I were, standing in the Batman section.”
“I said, ‘Do you have any tips?’,” Affleck recalled. “‘And he said: ‘Make sure you can piss in that suit.'”
Bale was also in the costume shop to buy his son a Batman suit, Affleck added: “He doesn’t just hang out [in the Batman aisle”.
I have to admit that made me chuckle. I would love to have been a fly on the wall in that store!
So, now I’ve had my fix for the day, I suppose I’d better get some work done!
