Enter: Suicide Squad

Considering the amount of attention The Joker received for THE DARK KNIGHT, it's not too surprising that Warner Bros. is dipping into more DC Comics villains. Just not ones that are very well known.

The studio is putting a SUICIDE SQUAD on the roster, with producer Dan Lin and omnipresent screenwriter Justin Marks (STREET FIGHTER, GREEN ARROW: SUPERMAX, VOLTRON, HE-MAN, etc., etc.) bringing a mixture of various B and C-list supervillains together for big-screen missions. 

The title has been kicking around DC Comics for decades in various incarnations, with minor baddie characters like Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Vixen and Bronze Tiger (plus a bunch of expendables) taking on dangerous operations for the government in exchange for some leeway on their various sentences.

Extra Tidbit: Lin was also producing the now-shelved JUSTICE LEAGUE movie.

What about Venom, Marvel?

Here's an even better idea, give venom his own movie, ditch the 70's show fuck-up, and make that guy work for the government, doing dirty jobs, and ripping off heads along the way.

Is it so hard to make Venom the psychopath he deserves to be?

Well my brother's going to be stoked to hear this. He's much bigger fan of the series than I am, but I've read a few issues and it seems like it'd be a cool premise, they'd just need to be careful about not using villains that Nolan, et al would want to use in the main franchises. Nice to see that Warner Bros. is finally starting to get into full swing with their DC properites.
