Alert the Fashion Police! The 13th Doctor has a costume — and it will give her sixth persona’s notorious eyesore a run for its sartorial money!
Now, unlike Colin Baker‘s deliberately offensive multicolored suit, Jodie Whittaker‘s ensemble is not designed to assault the senses and offend the sensibilities — but it will take some getting used to. On the plus side, the newest Doctor’s threads do pay tribute to many of her previous selves and their… uh, questionable tastes.
It appears the newly regenerated Time Lady will be in a nostalgic mood, because the outfit she eventually puts together clearly pays tribute to just about all of her previous selves.
Let’s start with the T-shirt. While reminiscent of the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), its brown tint and colored-stripe pattern it immediately call to mind the endless scarf worn by Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor.
Here he is, in all his Clown Prince of Crime… um, grandeur: Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad, as seen on the eye-searing cover of Britain’s Empire magazine.
If you ask me, this is the dictionary definition of trying too hard!
I mean, does every square inch of him have to be tattooed? Does he need a cane?
Every time I start to think this production might be tolerable, some new piece of information is released that ruins it again.
Pretty sure this movie is going to suck.
Naturally I haven’t yet seen a movie that is still filming and I don’t read the current incarnation of the Suicide Squad comic book, but after seeing the cast in costume for DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad live-action movie — courtesy of director David Ayers — I’m glad this team’s mission is to commit suicide.
The roster includes (from left to right): Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.
Don’t laugh; it’s no small thing that the lead character’s onscreen costume will resemble what he wears for his four-color adventures in print every month — just ask the X-Men!
Star Ryan Reynolds unveiled his latest superhero threads — remember the atrocity that was his Green Lantern costume (and movie)? — this morning by aping a famous Burt Reynolds pose.
Of course a character that I despise gets a great costume…
