March 16th, 2016 by Marc Comments


While we are all buzzing for Batman V Superman landing next week, we’re looking forward to the Suicide Squad movie too.

Now actor and rapper Common – who almost played Green Lantern in the unmade Justice League: Mortal – has revealed the name of his villain in the movie.

Everyone – ourselves included – has assumed he is the Tattooed Man in the movie but now Common says he plays “Monster T” in the movie, is associated with Joker and “fans would have to watch the movie to se what he was up to.”

Might he be the Tattooed Man and could he be responsible for the tattoos on Joker, Harley etc? Are the tattoos perhaps not permanent?

We’ll all know in August.

In related news, here’s a new Suicide Squad banner that puts the Joker front and centre – Left to right: the Joker, Enchantress, El Diablo, Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc, Deadshot, Rick Flag, Slipknot, Harley Quinn and Katana.

Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5, 2016.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
