I finally relented and saw Suicide Squad. Despite going in with the lowest of expectations after Batman Vs Superman I was pleasantly surprised to see a competent film, much better than recent DC offerings. Unfortunately, Jared Leto’s Joker character is an annoyance that the film cannot get around.
With Daredevil due to debut on Netflix this week, we will get another origin tale of someone rising from a difficult background to be the saviour of a city. Do they all need to come from a difficult past?
