"Hancock, Hancock, people are saying Will Smith will be playing you again."
"Yeah, you want a cookie for that?"
"Sykes, Big Willie will be playing somebody cooler"
And just like that, Will Smith managed to bring back the Hancock glory days whilst putting to rest the ghost of the massive summer flop, After Earth.
But this will not be a walk in the park for Mr Smith, DC has thrown all its might in making this project a success. With the critical failure of both tyebwatchmen and Superman, DC and Warner Bros seem to be throwing a stellar cast to emulate the success of Oceans 11 in comic book terms.
Bringing the Bane feel with Tom Hardy and hoping that Jared Leto's joker emulates Ledgers joker, DC are half way to success already.
The dark Knight trilogy was denied a joker Bane battle die to Ledger premature death leaving fans of the series to pounder on what would have happened when Jokers madness met Bane's military genius. The suicide squad would be the ideal battle ground to pay that old question to rest.
More importantly, the suicide squad will offer viewers are rare chance to look and experience the world not just from a villans point of view. It will provide a sensation that Marvel has failed to bring forward to date.
