Suicide Squad is a little over a year away. Some, like me, feel like it's too far away. But as all good things come with patience we will have to wait for the task force X masterpiece.
Many rumors going around on what the suicide squad story will follow. I for one hope it's story follows how lex and joker team up. A very unorthodox partnership but one I believe almost everyone will love to see.
After being teased a Joker photo just about everyone lost their minds. Criticized good and bad. Some hate the joker look. As others love it. I for one believe Joker is insane so I think they are heading towards the right direction. I don't believe this will be the official look for the Joker but it is still an epic style for him. Jared Leto is an amazing actor so his look is just part of what he will bring. F.Y.I. the joker is insane, so his style must show how unpredictable he can be. By the way I'm pretty sure he will be wearing a suit most of the time so most of his tats, if they are official, will be hidden.
Lex Luthor in the other hand looks the way he should. Maybe Jesse didn't bulk up for the role but he is playing a genius who clearly doesn't need to be all brolic (muscular). His intellect will be his power, so there will be no need for muscles. He will probably have a suit as well so it will be kind of like the DC version of the Iron Man suit.
The Task Force X has to have some kind of origin story being put together. They will probably be called together to catch another criminal that we know will most likely be the Joker. Let's say about half of the movie is how they make a team of criminals trying to catch one criminal. But Joker has some tricks up his sleeves to get away. Which he does. Joker is informed that Lex Luthor went to prison at the end of Batman v Superman so he would help him escape so Lex could help him hide out. Lex needs Joker to escape and get to superman. And joker needs lex to hide so he can come up with some new scheme to get to batman. Lex will clearly want revenge because I'm sure either Batman or Superman put him in there. But who else could Lex call to help him escape? My guess is that anyone other than Joker. But what if it's a maximum security prison? He would need someone who could actually get him out by all means necessary. Even if he would have to kill. So let's says Lex makes a deal with the so called Joker and he escapes. Everything cost something, right? Joker would want his favored returned which causes them to team up to get to their revenge.
Which ever way they want to go with the Suicide Squad story it is inevitable for these two opposites to be a team of destruction. Trouble in the making but still the most epic team up, second to Batman and Superman.
