At times, it takes a lot of courage to admit that I enjoy little nerdy things. I am a huge DC fan and I am obsessed with Harley Quinn and Joker (and yes, I am not in favor of Jared Leto). （￣へ￣）
Last April, SM North Edsa showcased a huge collection of DC Memorabilia and I was happy as a flea in a doghouse! I practically begged my partner to accompany me despite having work later that day…and yeah, I was not disappointed. The collection was huge!!! It ranged from action figures, medals, and even first issues of comic books.
Let me share with you the photos I took!!! Enjoy fellow geeky friends!
Superman once wielded Thor’s Hammer in the epic crossover of JLA/Avengers. He accomplished this not because he was a Super-man, but because he was “Worthy”. Source
The first time Batman that was ever depicted in a movie that had any kind of release was “Batman, Dracula” in 1964, directed and produced by none other than Andy Warhol. Source.
The Rest of the Justice League
In 2007, the storyline for JUSTICE LEAGUE THE MOVIE was unveiled – the story was based on DC Comics’ Justice League – The New Frontier story featuring superheroes forming up to fight JLA and The New 52 – an alien race contriving to annihilate Earth and its inhabitants. Source
Harley Quinn and the Joker
Robin Williams was offered the role of The Joker when Jack Nicholson hesitated. He had even accepted the role, when producers approached Nicholson again and told him Williams would take the part if he didn’t. Nicholson took the role and Williams was released. Williams resented being used as bait, and refused not only to play The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995) but to be involved in any Warner Bros. productions until the studio apologized. Source
