Zack Snyder’s Creative Influence In DCEU To Be Significantly Reduced
eelyajekiM   |  

Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder and his wife, producer Deborah Snyder, have been a part of the DCEU creative force since the very beginning. In fact, Zack Snyder has been a major presence having directed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, some of Suicide Squad, and was an executive producer and/or writer for Wonder Woman and Aquaman. But it appears that the filmmaker’s creative input could be minimized significantly as the DCEU moves forward.

According to new reports, the Snyders “will no longer have anything like the level of creative influence that got the franchise to this point.” More on the story below.

‘Bright’ Trailer: Will Smith Protects LA From Fairies, Orcs, and Elves
eelyajekiM   |  

Bright movie Will Smith Joel Edgerton

David Ayer knows how to tell a story about cops in Los Angeles. In fact, most of his films are about cops in the City Of Angels. So it comes as no surprise that Bright, his follow-up to Suicide Squad, features Will Smith as an L.A.P.D. officer. But what separates this particular film from the rest is that Smith’s character is partnered up with an orc named Jakoby (played by Joel Edgerton). That’s because Bright takes place in a world where humans co-exist with fairies, orcs, and other monstrous creatures that usually go bump in the night.

Though the two don’t get along at first, they are forced to put their differences aside when a magic wand surfaces, and everyone is out to get it so they can have their wishes granted. Check out the trailer here below.

David Ayer

The phrase “left due to creative differences” gets thrown around a lot in the film industry. We recently saw how much of an impact it has when Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the untitled Han Solo film.
And it’s not the last time we will ever hear the phrase.

Case in point, Suicide Squad director David Ayer, who is walking away from the Scarface remake for that very reason. More on the story below.

WB Wants To Shoot A DC Film Now For A 2018 Release
eelyajekiM   |  

WB DC films Justice League team first look

Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe got off to a rocky start. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad has given the vast majority the confidence the franchise needs to believe that it can compete with Marvel Studios. Still, early reactions to Wonder Woman have given us some assurance that there can be a decent DCEU film. James Wan is behind the lens for Aquaman. And despite some of the creative fallout, The Batman seems to be headed in the right direction now that Matt Reeves is the director.

Now there is word that Warner Bros. wants to start shooting a DC film this year. With The Batman set for a possible 2018 shoot, the rumor is that the studio has narrowed it down to five possible choices. Check out which film it could be here below.

David Ayer Admits He Should Have Done ‘Suicide Squad’ Differently
eelyajekiM   |  

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto

Suicide Squad may not be the most popular film amongst critics and some fans, but it was one of the top-grossing films of last year. Warner Bros. third entry of the DC Extended Universe was polarizing in more ways than one. The loyal fanbase supported the film even though critics eviscerated it for having too many plotholes and a lack of character motivation. But if there is one thing that Suicide Squad suffered from the most, it’s the fact that the marketing campaign failed to deliver its promise on giving us the Joker (Jared Leto). Sure the Clown Price of Crime was in the film, but trailers and TV spots had assured us he would be a vital plot point. Instead, he was an unnecessary factor. Even Leto voiced his displeasure saying that he shot enough footage for a Joker movie. The extended edition supports that fact.

‘Suicide Squad’ Director David Ayer & Star Margot Robbie Reunite For DC Movie ‘Gotham City Sirens’

Suicide Squad Margot Robbie

Because it worked so well the first time – and I am not being sarcastic about that – Suicide Squad director David Ayer and star Margot Robbie are reuniting for another DCEU project.

While a Harley Quinn film has been in the works since the big screen character was so well-received, the two won’t be returning for a Suicide Squad 2 – at least not yet. Instead the pair reunite for a film which will see Harley as part of yet another ensemble, but an all female one. The film is called Gotham City Sirens. Check out more on this story below.

Shia LaBeouf Almost Reunited With David Ayer For ‘Suicide Squad’
eelyajekiM   |  

Shia LaBeouf in Fury

Say what you will about Shia LaBeouf, but the actor has had some pretty incredible roles in the past, and one of his best was in the World War II drama Fury. Directed by David Ayer, the film centered on a US tank crew that undertakes a deadly mission behind enemy lines where they are outnumbered and outgunned.

A few years after its release LaBeouf went on to do many artful projects while Ayer signed on to write and direct Suicide Squad. And somewhere in between that time, it seems that LaBeouf was offered to play a role in the film, a role that ultimately did not go to him. Find out which one below.

Book Review: Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization
Empress Eve   |  

Suicide Squad The Official Movie Novelization cover banner

Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization
Paperback | Kindle
Based on the Warner Bros. Pictures film written by David Ayer
Based on the characters from DC Comics
Written by Marv Wolfman
Publisher: Titan Books
Release Date: August 9, 2016

Suicide Squad, a Warner Bros.’ summer 2016 tentpole, was one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year, with standout stars like Will Smith and Jared Leto, fan-favorite DC Comics characters like Harley Quinn and the Joker, and the promise of a cameo from Ben Affleck’s Batman. But once Suicide Squad hit theaters in early August, it was critically panned and many fans voiced their disappointment with the new DCEU offering’s out-of-sequence storytelling, non-compelling villain, and the lack of Leto’s Joker, the latter of whom was used heavily in the marketing of the film.

Not enough Joker in the film? Yes, that’s definitely true. Joker’s presence in general as well as his twisted romantic relationship with Harley Quinn are what fans were clamoring for the most. Leto recently spoke up to say that he didn’t know his role was going to be reduced to a glorified cameo and that enough footage was captured of his character to make a full Joker movie. Having read Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization, it does appear that there was much more Joker-Harley story to tell, as well as plenty other aspects left out of the final film.
