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.'

And here I thought Jared Leto trying to go 'method' for Joker by sending in used and abused condoms and anal beads, was as bad 'n sick 'n twisted as it'd ever get; but nah, turns out actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje had something up his sleeve. Akinnuoye-Agbaje says, “I did a lot of research on cannibalistic habits from back to the Mayans and the Aztecs, right up to modern-day cannibals.”

He says he'd also watch a video of a Japanese cannibal, Issei Sagawa, who killed and ate a Dutch woman. He kept it on his phone so he could play it every day...uh. Can't even, right now. Can't even.

“As sick as it sounds, the moment I start to play that video, I’m in the form of Croc, because it’s really important for this creature to be thirsty for flesh, even when he’s around The Squad.”

Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th. Check out the trailer below:

15 Ultimate Battles Between Marvel and DC Comics Clones


There's only so many superhero archetypes out there, so it's not surprising that Marvel and DC would occasionally copy each other. But artist Darren Rawling's series of drawings illustrates just how often it happens.

Maybe it's just appearance or maybe it's powers, but in some way these characters are clones of each other. Who do you think did it best?

In case you missed it, Wonder Woman was appointed as a 'Honorary Ambassador to the U.N.' back in October. Leaders were hoping to inspire young women and girls to be independent, powerful, and strong, in the spirit of the heroine, going into 2017.

The announcement was faced with the usual insane controversy. 45,000 people signed a petition which was presented to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urging the U.N. to strip of the heroine of her status.

"Although the original creators may have intended Wonder Woman to represent a strong and independent 'warrior' woman with a feminist message, the reality is that the character's current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit."

First off 'current iteration'? As in Wonder Woman has never appeared this way before? Uhh, come again? Mountain View

Thanks guys, these insane reactions to the most mundane things are why we can't have nice things anymore.

So, what was meant to be an honorary symbol of empowerment for young women, as Wonder Woman has been for decades, is instead yet another opportunity for the special snowflakes of the world to be offended, essentially because she's 'too hot'.

Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress who is portraying WW in the upcoming DC Film, had this to say in an interview with TIME, "There are so many horrible things that are going on in the world, and this is what you're protesting, seriously?"

"When people argue that Wonder Woman should 'cover up,' I don't quite get it," she continued. "They say, 'If she's smart and strong, she can't also be sexy.' That's not fair. Why can't she be all of the above?"

We're going with Gal on this one.



If the major concern here, and the point of this petition, is shedding light on persecution and the stacked deck minorities face, is it really insane that we allow ourselves to look up to an Israeli woman? Because god knows women and the jewish people have NEVER been persecuted or treated unfairly.

Besides, doesn't the UN have more pressing concerns than responding to internet outrage right now?

The final update in all of this is that Chloe Behrens at change.org has created this 'counter petition' to get Princess Diana reinstated. It reads:
"It has come to my attention that Wonder Woman has been removed from her role as ambassador for empowerment for the UN. A petition was signed by only 45,000 people wanting to dismiss her role. Their reasons are because 'she is a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit.' Wonder Woman is so much more than appearances and this petition will hopefully prove the point. Wonder Woman is the embodiment of feminism, peace, justice, and truth. Anyone who knows the character knows that what she does advocates for the peace, freedom and rights of all people around the world, much like what the UN strives to do,"

Based on a series from DC Comic's Vertigo imprint, iZombie will follow the re-animated corpse of med student, Olivia Moore as she feeds on brains to retain her humanity and simultaneously gain psychic imprints to track down murderers. If there's one thing Seattle's known for, it's murder.

iZombie will be joining both Arrow and The Flash on The CW. Hopefully with that track record, it'll do better than Vertigo's last TV adaptation, Constantine. We'll find out on March 17.
