During his interview with Comicality, the current Wonder Woman author Greg Rucka finally addressed whether or not Wonder Woman's bisexual (rumors and speculation had long since been running wild):

[Y]es, [Wonder Woman is queer]. I think it’s more complicated though. This is inherently the problem with Diana: we’ve had a long history of people — for a variety of reasons, including sometimes pure titillation, which I think is the worst reason — say, “Ooo. Look. It’s the Amazons. They’re gay!”

And when you start to think about giving the concept of Themyscira its due, the answer is, “How can they not all be in same sex relationships?” Right? It makes no logical sense otherwise.

It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able — in a context where one can live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner — to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women.

But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, “You’re gay.” They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist.

Now, are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women? As Nicola and I approach it, the answer is obviously yes.

And it needs to be yes for a number of reasons. But perhaps foremost among them is, if no, then she leaves paradise only because of a potential romantic relationship with Steve [Trevor]. And that diminishes her character. It would hurt the character and take away her heroism.

Apparently giving co-stars gifts like used condoms, anal beads, dead rats and pigs, wasn't enough for Leto; just yesterday the crazy fool gave Jimmy Fallon a live snake. See for yourself:



Dude, Jared Leto, you have no chill. During a recent interview with Fox 5 DC Leto said the following when asked about why he gave his poor Suicide Squad co-stars all those crazy gifts:

“The Joker loves to play games, he loves to manipulate, and that was part of the reason to do that. When you do give a gift to someone, even in real life, you think about, ‘What do I get them?,’ you think about who that person is to you, what would they like? So that immediately started to be really good homework for me. What do I give Deadshot? What’s my relationship with Deadshot? I gave Deadshot a briefcase full of bullets. It was kind of a message, it was kind of a threat, it was kind of a reminder. I wrote every character a note — a poem. What it did was that it started me on a journey into thinking what these people are, and it was a lot of fun.” (transcribed by Cinema Blend)

Here's the full 20-minute interview, if you've got that kind of time lying around; and if you want to hear Jared Leto straight up utter, 'human meat is always a great gift.'

Apparently, CW's Arrow isn't quite as bad as everyone feared. You can watch the pilot and decide for yourself. Maybe someday he'll grow a proper beard.

But that's old news. Tonight's top Arrow story is our first look at Torchwood and Doctor Who's John Barrowman in a yet-unnamed role, and DC favorite Deathstroke (played by Jeffrey Robinson).

Suicide Squad Director David Ayer said the following on Joker's 'damaged' forehead tattoo:

“Joker killed Robin and Batman basically smashes his teeth out and locks him up in Arkham Asylum,” Ayer said. “It’s in the asylum where Joker would have done the ‘damaged’ tattoo as a message to Batman saying, ‘You’ve damaged me. I was so beautiful before and now you’ve destroyed my face.’ That’s where the grill comes from.”
