So here is a tiny thing I noticed in UTRH a little while ago that I was just reminded of
Do you all remember that scene in Under the Red Hood where Jason steals the helicopter?
You know, this helicopter with a shipment for Black Mask lands among a bunch of guys there to meet them…
And then the lead guy gets into the helicopter and the following exchange happens-
Helicopter Pilot: Hey, protocol says I’m only supposed to be on the ground for six minutes!
Lead Guy: *pulls back hood to reveal he is in fact the Red Hood*
Jason: It’s okay, I won’t be staying that long!
Anyway, Jason being a dramatic and entertaining little shit here is a great scene, but I was always so distracted by it that I never really paid attention to the guys he had in the background. I’d just quietly assumed they were actually Jason’s men or mannequins or something.
Except then they sort of… get the pilots thrown into them and don’t do anything? So I took a closer look and-
See how those sleeves are hanging empty with the guns hung over the shoulders?
That’s because these guys are tied up
And now I just can’t stop laughing at this? Like. These guys are conscious and everything, you can see them moving. Heck, if you look back at the opening to this scene again, you can even see the sleeves hanging suspiciously empty-
So Jason fucking jumped all of the guys who were supposed to meet Black Mask’s arms shipment, tied them up and probably gagged them under the mask, presumably threatened them into cooperating, hung jackets and guns over them, and then just stood them up as props for the scene
Never let it be said that Jason Todd does not fucking commit to his theatrics.
Thank you animators for this handily labeled crate so we know that this is in fact supposed to be a shipment of guns.)
