It was 1966, smack bang in the midst of the Silver Age of Comic Books, that the idea struck. With the popularity of superheroes old and new once more skyrocketing, the opportunity to capitalise on the public’s renewed interest in comics had grown too great to turn down. And what better way to do so…
“My father was a lighthouse keeper. My mother was a queen. They were never meant to meet. But their love saved the world. They made me what I am: a son of the land, a king of the seas. I am the protector of the deep. I am… Aquaman.”

One thing’s for certain: Batman v Superman is categorically not the worst comic book movie ever. Green Lantern and the godawful Fantastic Four (2015) – a film where they seemed to give up halfway through production – are going to take a bit of beating. But it’s also by no means a good film either.

The first full trailer for Suicide Squad is here, behold, it’s one crazy rollercoaster ride!
