Welcome back! And yeah, that CBR redesign is unfortunate.

On diversity: I think the real trailblazer there was Kate Bishop. She could have so easily been pushed into the background when Clint Barton came back, but she kept the Hawkeye name and is one of the best characters in the series. It’s a good model to follow.

For all its flaws, Suicide Squad had really diverse casting.

I agree with Quietus, SS had plenty of flaws, but I don’t begrudge the 2 hours of my life nor the $15 I paid to see it at the cinema.

Smith and Robbie were wonderful, given the little the script gave them to work with, Viola Davis was, okay, as Waller.

I still wish they’d given the role to C.C.H. Pounder though. That would have been an awesome casting choice.

Some reviewers out there IMHO utterly failed to get the point, and claim that the Enchantress was the villain, but they clearly are idiots, because the movie is less subtle than a cluebyfour to the head film about who the actual villain of the piece is. Enchantress is the main antagonist though.

And there’s a mid-credits but no end-credits scene. That scene itself has convinced me I’m not interested in Justice League all by itself, sadly.

I’m sure others will disagree, and I hope they enjoy JL. I won’t be watching it.

@Grazzt: That’s an excellent point, And Kate is an excellent take on Hawkeye.

I’d go so far as to say that the way Clint reacted to her introduction improved him as a character and as Hawkeye too.

Of course, I like the Hawkguy take they have done on him, and I’m sure there are others who really don’t out there.

I never read the main Comic Book Resources all that much, but Comics Should Be Good was always my favourite comic website. Now I can’t even find it, although I’ve heard it’s still there, somewhere.

Like you, I haven’t been buying many comics in the last few years, although I still get Daredevil and Ms Marvel. I do really love the Marvel movies, and the Netflix shows (the ABC series have been a bit weaker, but still worth watching). I haven’t been able to get into the DC shows, but I’ve only seen a few episodes each. I think a big problem for me is that I never read much Flash or Green Arrow (and what I did read was a very long time ago), so I don’t have a pre-existing emotional bond to the characters. I did really like the one episode of Supergirl I saw, though. If I have the time, I think I will watch more.
